Waking up in the morning to a mild toothache or discomfort in your gums can certainly be distressing. Yet there are some people will simply try to put the pain out of their mind as they go about their day. However, the longer you delay in having the distressed tooth examined by one of our dentists, Dr. Smith and Dr. Carrell, the more likely you are to experience severe complications.

Once our dentist has performed a thorough examination to determine the underlying cause of the toothache, they will present you with the most effective treatment strategy. In some cases, you may need a root canal to remove the infected pulp or damaged nerve. This treatment is often followed by a dental crown restoration.  

In a severe case where very large dental abscess has developed in the gums, our dentists might recommend extracting the tooth to prevent further pain and infection. Once your gums have fully healed they can help you understand your options for replacing your tooth.

If you are in the Houston, Texas, area and you have started to experience toothache pain, we urge you to call 713-529-4364 to seek professional treatment from our oral care specialists at Bruce W. Smith, DDS. We look forward to helping you maintain your healthy, confident smile!
