Suffering a blow to the face from a household accident or a sports injury can easily traumatize the soft tissues in your mouth. Sometimes it can cause harm to a tooth that goes unnoticed at first. When this happens the pain may fade away only to return a few days later. This is often a sign that inflammation has developed in the damaged internal structures of the tooth. In a case like this, you should not delay in having the toothache treated at Dr. Chet B. Hawkins’s dental office.

Rubbing a little oral analgesic on the surrounding gums can provide some temporary relief while you wait for your appointment with our team. Just keep in mind that while this might numb the area in the short term, you should not think of it as an effective treatment for a toothache

Toothache pain from dental trauma often calls for our dentist to perform a root canal. This will extract all the damaged material as well as the enamel layer of the tooth. Dr. Chet B. Hawkins will then restore the internal structure of the tooth to prepare it for an eventual dental crown.
