One of the very last words you may have ever drummed up in reference to your toothache? The word “interesting.” We understand. The first vocabulary that floods your mind in reaction to this very unique type of discomfort is likely all quite negative! However, our Riverside, CA team would like to ask you to consider for just a moment a few interesting things, as they might actually prove beneficial for your oral health!

#1: You Can’t Completely Tell Which Tooth It Is

We know. It’s pretty strange! When we ask you which tooth you have a toothache in, you point to one with your tongue. Then you try to point with your finger. As you’re doing so, you might say, “Well, it actually might be this one!” Pretty interesting stuff! While it’s entertaining, you may also find it frustrating and worrisome. Here’s what you need to know: This is one of those reasons we suggest you come in to see us. Why? Well, because we have the technology to figure out not only what’s going on but which tooth is affected (and how to make it better).

#2: Your Body Is Sending You A Message!

It’s not quite a phone call, verbal announcement, or a text message. However, it’s still pretty amazing that your body has a way to alert you that something is wrong with your oral health and that you probably need to see our team soon for restorative care! What if all smile related issues were silent? That could prove quite disastrous! Instead, you end up with a toothache, which is a loud and clear message that tells you to come in to see us ASAP.

#3: Treatment Makes It Seem Like Nothing Ever Happened

If you come in for restorative care with us, whether it turns out you need a dental crown or a filling for that toothache, there will be no obvious evidence that it ever happened! Of course, we will know. You’ll know, too. Onlookers, though, will just see a healthy tooth. Sure, we may have addressed your pain with a root canal and a porcelain or zirconia crown or a tooth-colored filling. Fortunately, though, the restorations we provide are lifelike and carefully crafted to match your smile, so nobody will be able to see the difference!
