The acidic environment created in your mouth by poor oral hygiene habits can gradually start to demineralize your tooth enamel. As dental caries develop on a tooth, the bacteria in your mouth can start to penetrate deeper into the tooth.
When the tooth decay extends beyond the tooth enamel layer it can start to infect the dentin, pulp, or root structure of the tooth. As it continues to progress, you will likely experience increasing sensitivity, dental fractures, or a developing toothache. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you need to seek timely dental care at Dr. Forrest S. Buhler & Cameron S. Buhler’s clinic. The longer you wait, the more likely you are to experience increasing pain and potential complications from a dental abscess.
After assessing the severity of the problem, Dr. Forrest S. Buhler & Cameron S. Buhler will present you with your treatment options. This might call for them to perform a root canal. This endodontic treatment will extract any compromised structures before restoring sufficient structure to secure a dental crown. If you are in the Spanish Fork, Utah area and you are suffering with toothache pain, you should call (801) 794-9905 to seek care at Buhler Dental Care.
