Tooth pain can arise from various factors specific to your oral health. One common cause is tooth decay, where harmful bacteria in your mouth produce acids that erode the protective enamel, exposing the sensitive inner layers of your tooth. Additionally, gum disease, such as gingivitis or periodontitis, can lead to tooth pain when inflammation and infection affect the surrounding tissues and tooth roots. Tooth fractures, often resulting from trauma or excessive force while chewing hard substances, can also induce pain by exposing the tooth’s pulp. Dental abscesses, characterized by pockets of pus due to bacterial infection at the tooth’s root, can be intensely painful and may cause swelling and fever.
If you have particularly sensitive teeth, it could be due to exposed dentin or receding gums, making them more responsive to temperature and stimuli. Moreover, habits like bruxism, or teeth grinding, can wear down tooth enamel, leading to discomfort. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain when they push against adjacent teeth or inflame the surrounding gum tissue.
Identifying the specific cause of your tooth pain is crucial for correct dental treatment and relief. Dr. Jeffrey Etess and his team at Integrative Dental Specialists will help determine the exact source of your discomfort and enable you to address it in the most minimally invasive fashion, properly and effectively.
What sets Dr. Etess apart is that he will go above and beyond to listen to your needs and bring you a level of dentistry that is unrivaled. Dr. Etess utilizes his extensive specialist dental training and unsurpassed dental expertise to provide his patients with one-of-a-kind, individualized care, which allows for the highest level of dental treatment, personalization, and accessibility.
At Integrative Dental Specialists, setting the highest standard of care is what we are about. Implementing leading-edge dental protocols allows our practice to do what other dentists are unable to offer. There is nothing biologically superior to your own teeth, therefore you should do all that you can to ensure that you maintain them.
Other dentists are VERY quick to recommend a crown, root canal, or an implant. Using exclusive rehabilitative and dental biomimetic restorative procedures along with the ultimate best disinfection protocols including laser and oxygen ozone, problematic teeth can be restored and rejuvenated back to normal healthy function.
Pioneering therapies such as the root canal alternative treatment, ToothRegenesis™, reestablishes the blood supply to the tooth – even an infected tooth or tooth that has previously had root canal therapy – revitalizing and making the tooth “live” again. If you have to lose a natural tooth, zirconium, titanium, and specialty hybrid implants are the best options to replace missing teeth. But implants are not teeth, and the bone necessary to surgically place implants is not always readily available. Far too often I see patients that have been told by another dentist they are not a candidate for implants because they do not have enough bone. Fortunately, our practice has the technology to harvest your own living bone for self-bone grafts along with the next generation of Platelet Rich Fibrin (E-PRF) from your blood to allow the placement of implants where they were once not possible.
Remaining on the cutting edge of the newest dental advancements is a full-time task and a top priority for Dr. Etess. In order to provide our patients with the most sanitary environment possible, we employ ENHANCED proactive air and surface office disinfection protocols. Do not assume all dentistry is the same. Dr. Etess prides himself on bringing you first-class, unmatched care. When considering your dental needs, why settle for anything less than the best? We work toward one standard, the HIGHEST standard! The time for excuses has passed. If you are looking for the finest, safest, healthiest and most predictable results to correct your dental issues, and would like to learn more about the best ideas in modern dentistry available to you, please contact Integrative Dental Specialists to make an appointment with Dr. Etess today.
