Tooth Pain Relief

When you have severe tooth or jaw pain, it is hard to concentrate or enjoy your life. It is also a sign that something is wrong with your oral health. If you have been experiencing toothaches, you need a dental exam to determine the cause. Our team at Smile Design Studios in Missouri City can identify dental problems and provide the treatment needed to give you relief from tooth or jaw pain.

Tooth pain usually is caused by irritation of the nerves inside the tooth. This can be caused by decay, infection or damage to the outside of the tooth. In many cases, the repair of a crack or the removal of a cavity is all that is needed to stop tooth pain. These treatments can be completed in a quick office visit. More complicated issues, like tooth infections, may require root canal therapy or other treatments. Whatever the cause of your tooth pain, our dental team can help identify the problem and offer a treatment solution to give you relief.

Jaw Pain Treatment

When you experience aching in the jaw, it can be due to a variety of reasons. An infected, decaying or damaged tooth could be radiating pain throughout the jaw, or it could be a problem within the jaw joint. TMJ or TMD, a disorder that affects the jaw joint, is the common cause of jaw pain.

To determine the reason for your jaw pain, we perform digital x-rays. They help determine whether a tooth problem is causing pain or if misalignment or damage to the jaw joint is present. We offer a wide variety of dental treatments at our office. Our team can address almost any cause of jaw pain, including tooth repairs, orthodontics and TMJ treatment.

If you have been experiencing oral pain, contact our office to schedule a comprehensive dental exam. We can find the source of your pain and offer a treatment plan to give you relief. We always welcome new patients, and our office accepts most major dental insurance plans.
