Tooth Pain Decatur, GA
We often have patients come to our Metro Decatur Dental Group PC dental office complaining about tooth pain. Symptoms often vary widely from one individual to another. Your dentist will listen to your concerns, evaluate your condition and design a treatment plan to alleviate your tooth pain.

Common Causes For Tooth Pain
Sensitive Teeth
Sensitive teeth can cause extreme tooth pain, especially when eating hot or cold foods/drinks. For intermittent tooth sensitivity, your dentist may suggest a special tooth paste for sensitive teeth to minimize or eliminate tooth pain symptoms. Persistent tooth sensitivity that causes moderate or severe tooth pain can be a sign of tooth grinding, tooth decay or another dental problem. Your dentist will examine the tooth and create a personalized treatment plan. For tooth decay, a root canal may be necessary. If you are grinding your teeth, the dentist may make a special mouthguard that you wear at night to stop teeth from grinding.

Tooth Cavities
A tooth cavity can cause tooth pain when decay or infection reaches the tooth pulp. A root canal is the most common type of treatment for a cavity that is causing toothache. The dentist will remove the inflamed or diseased tooth pulp and seal the tooth with a dental crown. If the pain is severe and causing swelling or fever, you may have an abscessed tooth. This is a serious condition that causes infection of the tooth pulp as well as surrounding gum and possibly bone. If you are experiencing this type of tooth pain, contact our Annapolis dental office for an appointment with one of our dentists.

Jaw Pain
If your tooth pain is concentrated in the jaw or face, you may have a TMJ disorder. Tooth pain can be a result of pressure in the jaw joints and/or pressure from grinding or clenching teeth.
Pain When Chewing If you experience tooth pain when you chew or bite, you could have a cracked tooth, broken crown, or loose filling. Another cause may be a tooth cavity. Your dentist, Dr. Gary Simms, DDS will examine your condition and create a personalized treatment plan.

      The best and most helpful dentist I have ever been to. Dr. Sims is amazing but more importantly his staff has always made me feel welcomed comfortable and knows me by name every time I come in. This is by far the best dentist and staff... … More I would recommend him to anyone I came in to see him feeling pretty hopeless and now I have the most beautiful smile that I could ask for thank you!

      As a manager that has worked with Dr.Simms for over 14yrs I value my position as an Office Manager to ensure great customer service and patient education that our patients deserve. When that is not exemplified from my front office staff … More changes must be made. As with any job expectations are required and when it becomes clear that those expectations are ignored then the proper changes are taken to protect the company and our brand! I can ensure you that now that we have made changes to our front office staff you will be greeted with a pleasant smile and a warm welcome as you come through the door. Please feel free to come into our office to experience the changes we have made to ensure a pleasant visit.
