If you have realized “my teeth hurt,” it is definitely a good idea to see a dentist to get a proper diagnosis of your condition and find relief with treatment. The team at Foster Dental Care in Blue Springs, MO is here to help!

Why do my teeth hurt?

Pain and discomfort in the smile can be a sign of various different conditions that might be impacting one’s smile. Patients must be seen by a dental professional as soon as possible when these problems arise. Many conditions that are caught in the earlier stages can be treated effectively and allow patients to maintain their natural teeth. However, if left untreated, problems can worsen and patients may need to have dental extractions or emergency root canals performed.

Teeth may hurt for a variety of reasons. They include:

  • Large/deep cavity
  • Infection inside of the tooth
  • Abscess
  • Periodontal disease
  • Impacted wisdom tooth

What can I expect during dental extractions?

At Foster Dental Care, we provide Blue Springs, MO area patients with tooth removal when needed. Tooth removal may include either simple extraction or surgical extraction. A simple extraction is performed when the tooth is above the gumline and accessible to the dentist. Surgical extraction is performed when the teeth are underneath the gumline, such as impacted wisdom teeth. This is a more invasive procedure but may be done in certain situations.
