If you have pain in a tooth when you eat something hot or cold, you should make an immediate appointment to come in and see our dentist at our dental practice, Mark D. Orenshein DDS. Our Chelsea dentist, Dr. Mark D. Orenshein will be able to assess your individual situation and let you know exactly what the cause of your tooth pain is.

When a tooth is sensitive to heat and cold, it is often because it is infected or damaged on the inside of the tooth. In this case, you will need to have a root canal to restore the tooth to good health. A tooth can become infected or damaged in many different ways. Sometimes a tooth is decayed, and the problem is ignored for long time. When this occurs, decay can reach the inside of the tooth. If a tooth is chipped, or cracked, infection can also travel into the center of the tooth through these breaks. If a tooth experiences trauma, this too can damage the pulp. Generally, the first sign that you have an infected tooth is tooth pain which occurs when you eat something hot or cold, or when pressure is applied to the tooth. This pain may be either sharp or dull. It is very important to have this checked out immediately by our dentist, as the sooner an infected tooth is treated with a root canal that more likely it is to have a better outcome. If a root canal treatment is not performed on a damaged tooth, the tooth will not get better by itself; it will only become worse and eventually fall out on its own or need to be extracted. It is never wise to leave an infected tooth in your mouth because the infection can spread to other parts of your mouth and face, and even to other parts of your body. Our Chelsea dentist can perform a root canal procedure for you using the latest rotary root canal technology.

If you are experiencing tooth pain, contact our office for an appointment to see our top-notch Chelsea dentist.
