Dr. Dunlap Talks About Mouth Pain

Dr. Dunlap talks about sensitive teeth, sharp pains while chewing and constant, severe pain and answers your Facebook questions.
Should you be concerned about sensitive teeth?  What about some of the other aches or pains you've had in your mouth?  Dr. Bryan Dunlap of Dunlap Dental joins us to go over some common symptoms and how to treat each one.

1. Sensitive teeth: If your teeth are sensitive to hot or cold foods, a small decay or loose filling may be the culprit.  You can use toothpastes made for sensitive teeth, but if the pain persists after several days you should consult your dentist.

2. Sharp pain when chewing: Sharp pain usually indicates tooth decay, a cracked tooth or a loose filling.  Your dentist can help you get a handle on these issues.

3. Constant, severe pain: When the soft tissue inside the root canal of a tooth gets inflamed or infected, it can lead to constant toothache.  The may be caused by an abscess, which is often treated with root canal surgery and placement of a restorative crown on the tooth.
