You’re experiencing a painful sensitivity in one of your teeth every time you take a drink of cold water. Perhaps it’s happening when you’re trying to enjoy your morning cup of coffee. Or you’ve noticed swelling near your tooth or gums. You’ve tried waiting a few days to see if the pain will go away, but if anything it’s getting worse. Gone is the pleasure you get from eating. The pain is even beginning to bother you during the night.
There are few things more uncomfortable — and more common — than a toothache. So, what is causing that pain and what should you do about it? At the offices of Linda Ricks, DDS, MS, PC, our endodontists are specially trained in diagnosing and relieving tooth pain. We know that getting to the root of the problem as quickly as possible affords the best opportunity to save your natural tooth and avoid costly treatments in the future.
