Did you recently suffer a blow to the face from in an accident or sports-related injury? That can certainly be painful. Sometimes it can pass, only to resurface in the form of a toothache. This is a likely sign that the internal structures of the tooth were traumatized and that there is now inflammation in the area.
If this has happened to you, do not delay in seeking professional care at William Forero DMD, PA in Coral Springs, Florida.
Before your appointment, you might discover temporary relief by applying a topical oral analgesic to the gums surrounding the tooth. You can also hold a cold compress to your cheek. Remember, however, that this is only temporary relief designed to help reduce your pain and distress. We can help you with a more permanent solution.
In some cases, we may recommend a root canal. This will involve removing the tooth enamel layer, as well as all the compromised soft tissue within the tooth. We will then offer you a crown to protect the tooth from future damage.
If you live in the Coral Springs, Florida area and you are suffering with a toothache from oral trauma, you can call 954-752-4901 to seek treatment from Dr. William Forero at William Forero DMD, PA.
