Toothache? How annoying! Please get in touch with us, because we can help you. In case of dental pain, we always start with an exam and take x-rays to assess the situation. In many cases, the pain in caused by inflamed dental tissue and that needs to be removed. Once dental tissue is inflamed, it will not heal on its own. The inflammation can even spread, making the problem worse. If necessary the dentist will refer you to an endodontologist.
Because the inflamed tissue is located in the root of a tooth, the removing is referred to as a root canal treatment. Our dentist will of course take the utmost care and with some local anaesthesia, the treatment is almost painless.
