Are you experiencing pain or discomfort? Do you have a toothache that just won’t go away or tender, aching gums? Fortunately, we have the solution for you. Our Peabody, MA dental practice offers a variety of general dentistry services and oral surgery options that can help alleviate your pain and restore the health of your mouth. Below we will talk about a few things that may be causing your discomfort and what we can do to remedy the situation. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office.
One of things we routinely check for at every appointment is gum disease. It is a common affliction that can cause serious damage to your oral health if left unchecked. If you have tender, swollen, red, or bleeding gums, gum disease is likely the culprit. Fortunately, depending on the stage of progression, we can offer a few different treatment options to eliminate the infection and restore the health of your mouth.
Pain in a specific tooth or area of the mouth can be caused by an infected tooth. When a tooth becomes infected, it can cause sharp or severe pain that needs to be dealt with right away. When this happens, we recommend a root canal. Root canals are used to remove the infected dental pulp from a tooth and then seal it against future infection. This process eliminates the tooth’s ability to feel pain, restoring your comfort and oral health! Visit our page on root canals for more information.
Decay or Wear
If you have a badly damaged or worn-down tooth, it may be causing you some discomfort. We offer restorative dental services to help correct this issue. Depending on the extensiveness of the damaged, we can use an inlay, onlay, or dental crown to make the repair. These restorations will repair the structural integrity of your tooth and help you feel better in no time!
Tooth Extraction Services
In the case that a tooth is severely damaged and cannot be saved, we will need to remove it. Our extraction process is painless and stress-free — we can even use IV sedation to allow you to sleep through it! After the tooth is extracted and the gum has healed, you will no longer experience pain! We even offer tooth replacement services to replace what is missing.
