Toothaches remain perhaps the most common reason why patients seek emergency treatment at their 23228 dentist. Toothaches typically fall into either one of two separate categories—the ones stemming from odontogenic pain, from the nervous tissue within tooth itself, or non-odontogenic pain, from the surrounding face, jaw, or head. When you schedule a toothache-related emergency appointment with your 23228 dentist, Dr. Shan will go over your medical and dental histories, review your symptoms and then perform a thorough exam of your oral cavity to determine the underlying cause of your pain. During the clinical exam, she will look specifically for clinical signs of redness, inflammation, or apparent damage to the tooth. Our high-tech digital radiography system can also aid in the detection of dental issues affecting in the surrounding tissues and in the underlying bone. Once a diagnosis is made, we will work with you to pursue the most appropriate treatment plan for your needs, to relieve both the pain and its underlying cause.
