A Toothache Needs a Restoration
One of the most common reasons to seek dental care is to address pain in one or more teeth. While toothaches and sensitivity could occur for many different reasons, including sinus problems, one that persists for more than a day could be a sign of a deeper problem. For instance, a persistent toothache could be caused by tooth decay, the early stages of a dental abscess, or as a result of weakened enamel due to teeth grinding and clenching. When you have an aching tooth, you probably need a filling placed. Doctors Network can help locate dental care in the Tahoma, CA community who takes Cigna!
When the dental professional examines your smile, digital x-rays are used to assess the severity of the cavity. From there, the appropriate treatment option is chosen. For kids and adults alike, a tooth-filling made from biocompatible material could bring relief. A dental cap or crown could also be used to address advanced decay. When possible, the dentist will take steps to use more lifelike options, so they ensure an attractive smile.
