Patients often come into our Missoula, Montana dental practice and complain about ‘a toothache the size of Lolo.’ I understand this kind of pain, and realize that when you describe it like that, it really hurts. I can help.
Tooth ache pain for anyone in Missoula can be unbearable. At the very least, toothache pain can cause you to avoid eating certain foods. Severe toothache pain can be downright debilitating, forcing patients to go to extreme measures to alleviate the pain.
Around Missoula, the most common causes of a toothache include tooth infection, decay, injury, or loss of a tooth. Tooth pain can also occur after a tooth has been extracted or following oral surgery.
I can help you better understand the source of your toothache, and in most cases can provide a nearly immediate remedy. In severe cases, I am equipped to council you on possible resolutions.
Of course, the best way to avoid toothache pain is to visit your Missoula dentist often, and to care properly for your teeth including a regular regimen of brushing and flossing.
If you are experiencing toothache pain and just can’t stand it any more, please give me a call; I am standing by to help.
