Toothaches Need Attention
One of the most common reasons to look for a dentist is to address discomfort caused by cavities. While sudden discomfort could occur for a number of reasons, including sinus concerns, one that persists for more than a day could be a sign of a deeper problem. For instance, a persistent tooth pain could be caused by tooth decay, the early stages of a dental infection, or as a result of weakened tooth structure due to teeth grinding while asleep. When you have a toothache that lingers, you most likely need a dental restoration. Doctors Network can help locate dental care in the Anchorage, AK area who takes walk-ins!
When the dentist examines your smile, digital x-rays are used to assess the cause and extent 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 crown could also be used to treat more severe cases. When possible, the dentist will take steps to use more lifelike options, so they blend with the smile.
