Here is an article on Dear Doctor about tooth pain. It discusses the different types of pain, possible causes, and treatments.
One thing I’ve learned working in this practice, it doesn’t get better on its own. It only gets worse (and the longer you wait, the more expensive the treatment options become). If you’re having tooth pain, get to your dentist!
Welcome to our new blog on all things endodontic. We will try to find resources for your frequently asked questions, descriptions of the different types of root canal treatments, and current research in the field. If you know of reputable sources, please let us know and we’ll be happy to add them to our site. If you have any questions, just ask. We’ll do our best to answer them ourselves or find an answer for you. And, if there’s anything else you’d like to see on this site, just send us a request.
This blog is provided by the practice of Deb Conner, DDS, MS, an endodontist in Durham, NC.
Our hope is that you will never need a root canal treatment. But, if you do, we then hope these pages will help you learn all you need to know to be prepared for your appointment.
