Cavities can sometimes go unnoticed, ignored, or untreated. When this happens, the tooth decay can start to penetrate deep into the root of the tooth. This can sometimes cause a toothache with an infected abscess in your gums.

Without timely treatment at Dr. Mehrnaz Iranmehr’s clinic the bacterial presence can eventually pass to your bloodstream causing medical complications.

Dr. Mehrnaz Iranmehr can work quickly to diagnose the nature and severity of the problem. In some cases she might be able to treat the problem with a root canal. If the root of the tooth is severely infected or a large abscess has developed, Dr. Mehrnaz Iranmehr might need to extract the tooth and all the infected material.

Afterward, she will likely provide you with a prescription for antibiotics and pain medication. This can help you remain comfortable while your gums heal and treat any potential infection.

Once your gums have healed, Dr. Mehrnaz Iranmehr can help you find the best option for fully restoring the tooth. This might come in the form of a dental bridge or dental implant restoration.

If you live in the Dallas, Texas, area and you have a toothache, you should not delay in calling 972-447-9707 to have it treated by the oral care specialists at Preston Family Dentistry.
