Toothaches Need Attention
Perhaps, the most common reason to look for a dentist is to address a toothache. While toothaches and sensitivity could occur for multiple reasons, including sinus concerns, one that persists for more than a day could be a sign of a deeper problem. For example, a lingering tooth pain could be caused by dental caries, the early stages of a dental infection, or as a result of weakened tooth structure due to teeth grinding. When you have an aching tooth that does not subside, you probably need a tooth-filling. Doctors Network can help connect you to a dentist in the Del Rey, CA area near you who takes Medicaid!
