Mouth pain most often arises suddenly and can be severe enough to cause a dental emergency that our Longmont emergency dentist will treat whenever the need arises. The most common cause of mouth pain is decay in a tooth or the roots of a tooth. Decay attacks the tooth’s surface and over time it will form holes in the tooth and create painful spots that may also be sensitive to hot or cold. If the decay gets into the soft core of the tooth, the pulp it will cause an infection in the root, which can be very painful. Often an infection due to decay will cause an abscess, which is usually extremely painful. In cases of advanced decay our emergency dentist in St. Augustine will drill out the decayed spots and clean out any bacteria and infection and fill the remaining cavity. If the pulp has been infected our doctor will perform an endodontic treatment. In cases of large areas of decay on the tooth’s surface or with endodontic treatments a crown is usually placed on the tooth to protect it and to restore functionality. If an abscess is present it will be drained and antibiotic medication will be used. If you have tooth pain call our office.
