Severe Toothache? You May Need A Dental Crown

A painful toothache can be difficult to ignore, even when you take aspirin to help manage your discomfort. If a tooth continues to ache, or if it becomes remarkably sensitive, restorative dental work can be required to address problems that affect it. At our Shrewsbury, MA dental practice, we can perform an evaluation to determine what might be wrong before providing the necessary care to end your discomfort. When it comes to problems that cause toothaches, dental crowns are often required as part of treatment. We use E4D technology in our office to create lifelike dental crowns on site, so you can have your tooth fully restored in as little as one appointment!

Your Aching Tooth Could Be Injured Or Infected

So why are you experiencing problems with an aching tooth? Pain and sensitivity often accompany an advanced toothache, or an injury that leads to an infection of your tooth’s inner chamber. These are potentially serious problems, and the health of your tooth can actually worsen over time if you do not seek treatment. If too much time passes, an infected or decaying tooth can reach a stage where it cannot be saved, which means your dentist’s only option will be to extract the tooth and replace it.

We Offer Single-Visit Restorations For Our Patients

After dealing with the problems affecting your tooth, we can provide a restoration that matches its appearance, and provides you with enough functional support to make biting and chewing with that tooth comfortable. For patients receiving dental crowns, we rely on E4D technology to fully take care of a problem tooth in one appointment. This technology allows us to measure your tooth, use those measurements to craft a custom crown, and have the crown produced on site. The restorations we provide are designed to match more than just the shape and size of a natural tooth – you can also count on it to match its color and texture. As a result, your treatment can ensure that your smile maintains its natural look.

Your Tooth Pain May Call For Root Canal Treatment

It is often necessary to provide root canal treatment for teeth that become painful or sensitive. Our practice has considerable experience performing this procedure, and we are prepared to handle complications that might lead to more involved care. In addition to making sure your tooth’s health is fully restored, we can take care to minimize discomfort while you are in the dentist’s chair.
