Just like when you’re sick with something that feels like a cold, but might be something worse, we tend to wait to see a dentist. Knowing when to take a toothache to the dentist isn’t something that’s common knowledge.
However, the truth is that, just like with other medical problems, you likely need to see a dentist immediately when you’ve identified a tooth that’s a problem. Regardless of its severity, you’ll be better off in the long run if you just go ahead and get your toothache taken care of.
When is it serious?
A common question that a dentist will field is when to know if a problem tooth is actually a problem. Warning signs are different from person to person, but a commonality is that if you feel pain, you have a problem. If Dr. Jeffrey Falduto doesn’t notice it during your usual check up, then it means it’s likely a quick-onset issue. Those are the things that make a real mess of your mouth.
What do I do?
If you have a toothache that won’t go away, don’t get too worried. Chances are it’s a small cavity or something else minor. However, you’ll want to call the team here at Jeffrey Falduto in Lincoln Park, New Jersey, as soon as possible. Quick treatment means a more comfortable treatment process – and less risk for complications.
