At the Offices of Brian Carlin DDS, we help patients who are suffering from an Okemos toothache. Toothaches are usually the cause of some type of tooth decay, which has caused a cavity. A cavity is a hole in the tooth, and needs to be filled with a type of composite filling material in order to fix them from becoming further decayed.
A really severe Okemos toothache can be known as a dental emergency. If you have a dental emergency you should call us immediately. You can count on Dr. Carlin to help you fix your toothache and get you out of pain as quickly as possible. A few things can happen that might cause a toothache. Cavities, teeth being loose, cracks chips or breaks, or crowns that have come loose can all cause a toothache. If any of these things have happened, come to her office as quickly as you can so that we can treat your Okemos toothache. If the toothache is not treated right away, it can turn into an infection, or also known as an abscess. This can be dangerous and can be very painful. The abscess can spread, so come see us immediately.
