Toothache pain can be distressing and sometimes mysterious in origin. It can be especially disconcerting if you aren’t away or any existing cavities or dental fractures.
At the same time, it’s also worth considering that a recent blow to the face could eventually lead to a toothache. In some of these cases, it can even take a day or two for inflammation to irritate the nerve or the surrounding periodontal tissues.
If you have suffered a blow to the face and you are experiencing toothache pain or a feeling of pressure and discomfort in the underlying gums, you should not delay in seeking professional treatment from an experienced dentist like Dr. Nirmal Aujla.
While you’re waiting for your appointment at his dental offices, you might be able to manage the pain by rubbing the surrounding gums with a topical oral analgesic. If you don’t have any on hand, you could also try taking an over the counter anti-inflammatory medication.
After examining the tooth and taking some X-rays Dr. Nirmal Aujla can help you understand the necessary treatment measures necessary to restore the integrity of the tooth. This might call for him to perform a root canal.
This endodontic therapy will effectively remove the tooth enamel layer as well any other traumatized components within the tooth. Then Dr. Nirmal Aujla will use a material which is known as gutta percha to create an abutment capable of anchoring a dental crown.
