Tooth Pain An Overview
Anytime you have tooth ache pain or wisdom tooth pain, you should see dentist Dr. Sowell at Sowell Senational Smiles in Plano, TX. Dr. Sowell has the latest diagnostic technology to help determine the exact cause of your toothache or wisdom tooth pain.
Sometimes, it is a large, deep cavity that has exposed the nerve of a tooth. Other times, it’s an abscess that causes your tooth ache. You may also experience tooth pain caused by poorly erupted wisdom teeth, which may have to be removed. Regardless of the reason for your tooth pain, Dr. Sowell is an experienced and skilled general and restorative dentist who can eliminate your toothache quickly and comfortably.
Tooth Pain What to Expect
If necessary, Dr. Sowell will perform a root canal to restore a tooth that is inflamed or infected. During this procedure, the inflamed and infected nerves are completely removed from the tooth canal. The canal is then carefully cleaned and completely disinfected, and filled with a special white filling known as gutta-percha. The tooth will be covered either with a dental filling, inlay, onlay or tooth crown.
In every case, Dr. Sowell’s first goal is to save your tooth and help you avoid permanent extraction, if at all possible. He has probably saved many of your Dallas, Plano and Frisco friends and neighbors from the agony of toothache pain and the misery of losing a tooth to extraction.
