Nobody wants a toothache, but they happen. When you get that pain, it’s pretty hard to ignore. It not only makes it difficult to chew your food, it can get so bad that it keeps you awake and gives you a headache. It is important to never ignore a toothache; your body is telling you in no uncertain terms that something is very wrong. We all know that our mouths are full of bacteria, which isn’t an issue as long as your gums and teeth stay healthy. However, if these features start to break down, the bacteria can get into them and cause devastating infections that may spread to your jaw and skull. Seeking treatment is very important.
If you have a toothache, we have some great news for you: there are solutions. At Smile Designers, we pride ourselves on being the solution for people suffering from tooth pain. We act quickly to correctly diagnose what is going on so that we can move forward with treatment and bring you the pain relief and good dental health you need. It’s our goal to save your natural teeth and restore your comfort.

Root Canal Treatments
When decay or bacteria get inside a tooth, the nerve and pulp become painfully infected. Without treatment, the infection can spread to the tissues surrounding the tooth. A root canal solves this issue by removing the nerve and pulp altogether. The clean tooth is then sealed so that it will no longer be a problem. You might wonder how your tooth will survive without its nerve, but the nerve only delivers hot and cold sensations. It isn’t required for the tooth to function on a daily basis. At our dental clinic in Longmont, we are highly skilled at root canals and will get you on the road to recovery as quickly as possible.
How do the nerve and pulp get damaged in the first place?
- There are several ways the inner part of a tooth can be negatively affected. Neglect in dental hygiene can lead to deep decay, a tooth can wear down and even break down, a large filling can come loose, the tooth can be cracked, or you can suffer face trauma that damages a tooth.
