Can You Fix Toothache in One Visit? How to fix a Toothache fast

27 July 2021

Tooth pain can be one of the most excruciating things you’ll ever experience. Next to earaches and kidney stones, a bad toothache can feel debilitating. Finding fast relief for teethaches in Sydney is essential to function, much less save your smile from an unnecessary dental extraction. 

What Causes Teeth to Ache?

There are several reasons why teeth ache from time to time. Three of the most common are gum recession, cavities, and dental abscesses. Since abscessed teeth are known for causing severe tooth pain and facial infections, it’s essential to treat them as quickly as possible.

Abscessed teeth can cause symptoms of:

  • Swollen gums
  • Throbbing, sharp, or dull pain
  • Sensitivity to types or textures of food
  • A visible fistula or ‘pimple’ on your gums
  • Salty or sour taste in your mouth
  • Pain when biting down

How to Fix a Toothache Fast

The first step to treating a toothache is to take an X-ray and identify the exact source of your pain. If your tooth is abscessed, there will be a small cyst near the tip of the root. This area of drainage is caused by inflammation inside the tooth nerve.

Once the nerve of a tooth becomes infected or abscessed, the only treatment options are to either extract the tooth or perform a root canal. The standard of care is to preserve your tooth with a root canal (endodontic therapy.) Since root canals fill the tooth and seal out new infections, they allow you to preserve your natural tooth for several more years.

Smile Concepts provides single visit root canal therapy to offer fast pain relief and save you valuable time.

Same Day Treatment for Toothaches

Single visit root canal treatment consolidates 2-3 visits into one. Thanks to advanced technology and the skilled techniques of Dr Shah, we can complete the entire endodontic procedure in one appointment.

By expediting your endodontic therapy, we improve the comfort of your treatment and reduce time spent in the dental office. Our Sydney root canals are performed using a local numbing medication to ensure your comfort from start to finish.

Same-day root canals differ from endodontic treatments in other offices. Some dentists prefer to phase the process across a few weeks, performing a portion of the treatment at each visit. By streamlining the experience for our patients, we significantly improve their comfort and stop the source of their tooth pain in one day.

Does it Hurt to Get a Root Canal?

Root canal treatment addresses the source of your tooth pain, preventing it from coming back. As with any basic dental procedure, there may be a little tenderness when applying local anaesthetic (numbing medication.) Otherwise, you shouldn’t feel much of anything other than a little pressure.
