Tooth pain can be caused by many different issues. A simple cavity can cause sensitivity and removal of the decay is a fast and affordable solution. However, sometimes the problem is more complicated. An abscess or infected tooth can be painful; a root canal may be needed to remove the infection and diseased tooth material. Whatever the cause, Dr. Wyant will use the latest technology to find the source of your pain and offer a treatment option to restore your oral health.
Treatment for Jaw Pain
Does your jaw ache when you wake up in the morning or do you have ongoing, radiating pain from your jaw? You may grind your teeth at night or have TMJ/TMD. Night teeth grinding can harm your teeth and cause jaw pain. It is also often linked to temporomandibular disorder (TMD), a problem with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in your jaw. Both can cause jaw pain. TMD can also cause a popping noise when you open or close your mouth, headaches, difficulty opening your mouth and other symptoms.
If you have jaw pain, come see Dr. Wyant at Smile Arkansas. He can perform a full examination and determine whether you need treatment for TMD, night teeth grinding or whether there is another source of your jaw pain.
