Oral Pain Washington Heights
There are many reasons why we would feel the need to visit the dentist, and although it’s not always the most pleasant of experiences, at our Washington Heights dental office
we make it our goal to make you as comfortable as possible and not think twice about coming back. Dr. Elliot Gutman, DMD has been providing exceptional and compassionate dental care for more than 25 years and takes the time to get to know each patient and their unique needs.
In most cases, toothaches are caused by a problem in the tooth itself. Gum disease, a cavity, a loose tooth, or even TMJ, which can throw off your bite, are common issues that might prompt oral pain as well. Extremely hot or cold foods and drinks can also aggravate that existing pain, and make your teeth especially sensitive, so they should be avoided. The only way to find out for sure what is causing the toothache is a thorough exam at our Washington Heights dental office
with Dr. Gutman. Even if the pain subsides, your toothache is a sign that there’s something more that needs immediate attention. Early detection is the best rule involving most health issues and with mouth pain, you want to catch something before it turns into something serious. Certain oral problems are only treatable when dealt with early so it’s best to make the time to make an appointment at our Washington Heights dental office
when you have a persistent toothache.
