If you have a toothache, you know that it can cause non-stop, intense pain!

Typically, the cause of a toothache is decay reaching the pulp or even the nerve of your tooth.

If you’re experiencing a toothache, please contact us immediately. For most types of dental emergencies, we can get you in for an appointment the same day you call.

A true toothache isn’t the same as experiencing discomfort when you sip hot or cold drinks, suck in cold air, or eat sweet, sour, or acidic foods. Instead, a toothache is an acute pain in the tooth or jaw. If your jaw swells and/or you have a fever, it usually means that an abscess has formed.

It’s important that you don’t ignore a toothache. Even if the dental pain stops suddenly, this doesn’t mean that the tooth has cured itself.

You may be experiencing a toothache because you haven’t been to the dentist in awhile. And if you’ve been avoiding making an appointment because of fear of the dentist, we have great news for you!

We provide gentle dental care, and we’re committed to offering you the most comfortable care possible.

Toward that end, we offer three types of sedation dentistry, including laughing gas, oral sedation, and IV sedation.
