If you are experiencing tooth sensitivity or pain, you should first contact our dental office. Several different problems can cause tooth pain, and only a professional will be able to diagnose and treat the underlying issue properly.
In the meantime, try rinsing your mouth with warm water to clean the area around the affected tooth. You can also try to take over-the-counter pain medication to help reduce inflammation and dull the sensation of pain.
The American Dental Association recommends cleanings every 6 months to avoid plaque buildup and keep your gums and teeth in optimal health. This is especially important if you’re a smoker or diabetic, are pregnant, or suffer from heart disease, as these patients are more likely to develop oral health issues. In addition to routine cleanings and checkups, there are other times when it’s important to schedule an appointment. For example, if you experience a toothache or mouth pain, you should see a dentist right away. Other red flags include excessive bleeding, red and inflamed gums, and loose teeth. Putting off dealing with dental issues can cause the problem to worsen and become more difficult to treat.
Erin, our office manager, will be happy to discuss payment options with you.
Currently, we file all insurance claims as a courtesy to you. Dental insurance plans often cover preventive care, like teeth cleanings and checkups, but they may not fully cover more expensive procedures, like fillings, dental sealants, dental bonding, or crowns. We can assist you in finding out what is covered under your plan. We believe that everyone should have access to great dental care, so we offer flexible financing options to make paying for dental care more affordable.
