Dental Health Dental Health Toothache Relief
I'm Joe Neely, and I practice with theBarton Oaks Dental Group. We're going to talk about toothache relief. You can think of therelief on a toothache as coming in one of two major categories. Your your toothacheis coming either because of exposure of the tooth to some substance or or temperaturechange, or from from pressure. The pressure can come from trauma, or from infection. Inthat case, the the the relief of that pain is going to come when the pressure is relieved.Sometimes when there's a large infection, that relief can come from simply vent, findinga way to vent that pressure to the surface, which can be done by opening up an an abscess,or opening up a tooth that's that's highly
infected. The the second category, which isexposure; it can come from a break in the tooth, which a filling would take care of.It could come from a fracture of a larger portion of a tooth, which a a a crown or somethingstronger that could replace that structural element, but cover that tooth up. But sometimesit's just as simple as putting some type of coating over an exposed root surface, or anunbraided area in a tooth, and often fluoride, or some type of of plastic sealant materialwould suffice.
