It can be a relief to look at your tooth after striking it, or experiencing pain after biting into something hard, and seeing no visible damage. However, you can grow less confident that the tooth is in good condition if you continue to feel some discomfort, even if there are no signs of obvious trauma. That lingering pain may serve as a warning that something internally is wrong with your tooth. If this is the case, it is important to have an evaluation from your dentist. Our Corona, CA dentist’s office is prepared to help individuals who are concerned about problems with lingering tooth pain. We are available to help you if the discomfort reaches a point that makes you think the problem might call for emergency dental treatment.
Lingering Tooth Pain Can Occur If There Is Internal Damage
The inner chamber of your tooth is known as your pulp. In this central portion of your tooth, the nerves that support its health can be found. Because there are living tissues in this area, it may come as no surprise to you that an internal dental problem can lead to pain and sensitivity. If this is affecting you, be aware that the problem may worsen over time if you do not seek treatment.
Arranging A Root Canal Procedure As Part Of Emergency Treatment
During treatment to deal with an injured tooth, or one that seems to have developed an infection, your dentist can perform a root canal procedure. During this treatment, your dentist will carefully access the pulp and take care of the infected tissues within before sealing it. Root canals are effective at dealing with internal damage while minimizing needless changes to your overall tooth structure. With that said, it is important to have the tooth restored after treatment. A custom dental crown can provide lasting support, and it can provide cosmetic support.
Restoring The Appearance Of Your Restored Tooth
Once your tooth receives a dental crown, you can be relieved to see that your smile appears unchanged. Crowns can be carefully designed to imitate the appearance, shape, and size of a tooth, which can help you feel confident in both your bite and your smile.
