Ignoring pain in your mouth that persists, despite your efforts to manage it, will only make things worse.

Let your Jeffersonville dentist at Kirchner Dental help ease your tooth pain with emergency dental treatment!

Why Does Your Tooth Hurt?

Here’s a look at some of the most common reasons you might be experiencing a toothache, increased sensitivity, or other pain inside your mouth:

*An Accident or Injury*

Probably the most obvious cause of dental pain is trauma from an accident or injury.

If you’re hit in the mouth while playing sports, or just from a simple mishap like bumping into something, you could crack or break a tooth, which obviously isn’t going to feel good!

One of our most important goals is to treat dental emergencies as soon as possible so our patients don’t have to spend a moment longer than they already have feeling miserable.

We make room in our daily schedule for emergency appointments, and we even offer fast restorations thanks to our CEREC same-day crowns, so you can get fast pain relief and healing.

*A Cavity*

You might have some decay eating through your tooth.

Normally, your routine dental exams will catch these problems early enough to treat them before they destroy a tooth entirely. But if you’re scared of dental treatment, you might be tempted to put it off until the hole in your tooth makes eating and drinking too painful.

Plus, you’d only be putting yourself at risk for infections by procrastinating!

Our painless numbing technique makes filling cavities a breeze, and our tooth-colored material means your smile won’t be disturbed at all!

*An Infection*

One of the most painful dental problems you can have is an infection inside your tooth. That’s because it’s where all your most sensitive tissues and nerves live.

It’s no wonder why an infected tooth can cause unbearable, pulsating pain that over-the-counter medications just can’t touch.

Often, a root canal is the most beneficial solution. We can perform a comfortable, effective procedure to remove the infection and seal out future bacteria with a same-day dental crown that blends in with your smile.

*Periodontal Disease*

Another oral infection that can cause tooth pain and sensitivity is periodontal disease.

At the heart of it is bacteria that gets under the gumline and eats away at the tissues and structures in its way.

That means your gums pull away from your teeth, expose the sensitive nerves and roots, and eventually, your teeth can fall out.

We want to prevent that from happening! Our gum disease treatment is a nonsurgical technique to clean deep below the gumline, remove infection, and then get you started on a regimen to restore your oral health.
