Is your tooth feeling sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures? Do you sometimes feel tenderness when you bite down or chew? These symptoms may be indicating that there's decay in your tooth. Even if the pain goes away quickly, this is the best time to contact your dentist because you may be able to alleviate the problem with a simple dental filling.
Do Not Wait To Relieve Tooth Pain!
If decay is allowed to progress, it makes its way into the nerve of your tooth. Now you're probably experiencing pain that is much more severe and doesn't go away when you take Ibuprofen. By this time, it's likely that the decay has caused an infection in your tooth, which is the cause of your discomfort.
How do root canals in Moline, IL work?
If your tooth is infected, Dr. Lemon or Dr. Jackson will need to perform root canal therapy to eliminate your infection and alleviate your pain.

Any infection left untreated can result in tooth loss.
