Tooth Decay (Cavity)
In most cases, cavities do not cause a lot of pain but when it gets too close to the nerve, the tooth may become very sensitive to bite, temperature change, or sugar.
Cavities can easily be filled and cause no further problems however, when cavities get bigger and touch the nerve, the tooth instantly gets infected. Tooth infection causes unavoidable damage to both your tooth and wallet.
Visit us as soon as possible to fix your cavities to avoid pain and frustration.
If your tooth gets chipped, cracked or has a fracture line, bacteria can easily penetrate into the tooth and give you pain. In this case, visit us immediately to remove the fracture and fill it with white composite.
Excessive Tooth Wear
Teeth grinding (bruxism) or clenching can cause teeth to wear down quickly and shorten its lifespan.
If you grind or clench and see yellow cupped holes on top of your teeth (pic), then visit us and get a customized night guard (pic). If you neglect this problem for a long period of time, you may need crowns and/or root canals.
