Sometimes patients experience extreme tooth pain without having any sort of injury or accident. Unexplained tooth pain can be extremely frustrating and unpleasant. You want solutions and you want the pain to stop NOW.
Thankfully Dr. Jon Jenson in Utah County is extremely skilled at diagnosing and treating unexplained tooth pain. If your tooth is giving you pain, there are a number of solutions.
- Call Dr. Jon Jenson and schedule an appointment. Cascade Endodontics can usually see patients with dental emergencies same day during business hours.
- Take an over-the-counter pain reliever like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. This is a helpful temporary way to stop pain, but it shouldn’t replace visiting a dental professional.
- Rinse your mouth with warm salt water every hour. This won’t stop any tooth infection, but it can help relieve swelling in your gums.
Unexplained tooth pain can be a result of food getting stuck between the tooth and the gums. It can also be the result of an infection. If the infection is untreated for long enough, it can cause serious damage and may result in needing to have the tooth extracted. There’s no need to live with tooth pain. There is often a stigma attached to root canals, but our patients are pleasantly surprised to learn that the root canal was not painful and it stopped any tooth pain they were having. Contact Dr. Jon Jenson right away if you are experiencing tooth pain.
