Tooth and jaw pain can be excruciating and distracting. When you experience oral pain, you may not be able to concentrate on anything else. Tooth and jaw pain should never be ignored, as it is a sign there is a problem with your oral health. Our dental team at Smile Structure Dentistry & Braces in San Antonio can determine the cause of tooth or jaw pain and devise a dental treatment plan to give you relief.
Tooth pain results from irritation of the nerves inside the tooth. This can be caused by deep decay, an infection or injury to the tooth. In most cases, tooth pain may be relieved without removing the tooth. Decay can be taken away, and root canal therapy can stop infections and repairs can fix most types of tooth damage. We offer advanced options for tooth pain relief and treatment to stop the pain and preserve the tooth whenever possible. If you need tooth pain relief, visit us at our clinics in San Antonio.
Treatment for Jaw Pain
When your jaw aches, it can be due to many different causes. Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is a common cause of pressure and stress on the jaw. Tooth misalignment, missing teeth or temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ/TMD) can also cause jaw pain. Our dental team will identify the cause of jaw pain and determine the best option to give you relief. We offer treatment for jaw pain, including dental repairs, restorative dentistry, orthodontics and TMJ treatment.
