Does your tooth hurt when you drink something cold or hot? Is there some slight (or obvious) discomfort when you are chewing? How about when you eat something sweet? There are several reasons why your teeth may be hurting. It can be due to a cavity, chipped tooth, gum recession, infection etc. Whatever the reason, teeth respond by a pain response to let you know something needs to be treated. Sometimes the reason is obvious on a dental x-ray or clinical exam. Sometimes...not so much. In those cases, we would still obtain x-rays and do a clinical exam to try and narrow down which tooth it is and exactly what is wrong. We want you to be able to enjoy food without wincing in pain! Schedule an exam today so we can find that troublemaker tooth.
