Unaddressed Dental Attrition Could Eventually Cause a Toothache

Posted .

Sometimes what seems like a minor deviation in the alignment of your teeth, can potentially lead to significant dental distress. As the years go by the surface of one tooth can grind excessively on another, wearing down the tooth’s enamel layer.

As the dental attrition continues to progress bacterial deposits can start to accumulate in the area, which could lead to a severe cavity and worsening tooth sensitivity. If you have a bad habit of skipping your routine dental checkups, the area of tooth decay can spread to affect the interior of the tooth, causing a toothache.

If you have a distressed tooth, it’s best to seek treatment from a doctor like Dr. Henry Danziger as soon as possible. Once he has assessed the severity of the problem our doctor will present you with an effective treatment plan. Many of these cases require him to perform a root canal to excise all areas of tooth decay.

Once this is done he will prepare an abutment capable of supporting a dental crown restoration. The material used for the dental work will rival the strength of natural tooth enamel to restore the tooth’s essential function in your mouth.

If you live in the Naugatuck, Connecticut, area and you are dealing with toothache discomfort, you should not delay in calling 203.729.0563 to have it examined and treated at Henry K. Danziger DDS.
