Tooth pain? Don’t wait!! We see all too often people in pain. Today I will give you symptoms and some possible causes of tooth pain. In all cases it would be best to pop in and see our experienced team for us to take a look or possibly an x-ray as early detection can save you emotionally, physically and financially in the long run. The best time to treat dental problems is BEFORE they cause any pain. Both types of dental disease we commonly treat (cavities and gum disease) are PAINLESS in the early stages! That's why we stress the importance of regular preventative hygiene appointments. Sensitivity to hot or cold foods and liquids may indicate a dental problem that we can catch early. Such sensitivity may be due to gum recession, teeth grinding, a loose filling or an area of active decay.
