Tooth Pain Won't Go Away On Its Own

We can make the common toothache a little less common

Did a painful tooth bring you to our site? Oral pain is a common sign of a tooth infection. Daniel A. Woodland DDS will examine the area and work with you to find the best solution for your situation.

A root canal is one way to save a badly infected tooth. Your dentist will remove the nerve, then clean and repair the tooth. This procedure stops the pain and cures the infection without affecting the tooth's function. If your tooth is too badly damaged, we may need to do an extraction. Like the term suggests, your dentist will remove the entire tooth.

Don't suffer for another day. Call 517-323-3716 now to set up an appointment.

Why you should never tough-out a toothache

Why you should never tough-out a toothache

Pain is your body's way of telling you that you're suffering from an injury or an infection. If you ignore this signal, you risk...

  • An abscess: Tooth infections can develop into painful abscesses, which can cause your tooth to fracture if left untreated.
  • A life-threatening infection: When an infection that started in your tooth enters your bloodstream, the results can be fatal.
  • Irreparable tooth damage: While you postpone dental treatment, the problem gets worse, leading to more extreme procedures.

Your health is too important to gamble with. For top-tier dental care, come to Daniel A. Woodland DDS as soon as possible.
