Plus, without care, your tooth pain will only continue to get worse. When your tooth requires in-depth therapy to treat, you can trust Allen Smile Design to get the job done right!
If you are experiencing severe discomfort in your tooth, chances are high that an infection is present. This infection applies pressure to the inside of your tooth and root, which is what causes the discomfort. If you notice a pimple-like bump on your gums or your tooth is discolored (i.e. dark brown, yellow or gray), it’s likely because an infection has developed. Teeth can become infected when unremoved plaque turns into decay and that decay reaches the pulp (center) of the tooth.
