Pain is a signal that something is wrong with your body. Toothache pain indicates an oral problem and though it can be obvious when you have a bad tooth, there are times when you may experience toothache pain, and the source is not so clear. Any oral pain, especially if is continuing, can drain your energy and cause agony. At Engineered Smiles, we understand and work to diagnose and relieve your pain as quickly as possible.

An abscessed tooth, the result of dental decay attacking the nerve center of a tooth, is often the most plausible reason why a tooth would generate pain. There are several additional reasons when this does not appear to be the cause. Gingival recession, or receding gums, exposes the roots of a tooth, making them more sensitive to temperature changes and vulnerable to decay. In this situation, periodontal therapy can help correct the condition.

Sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages is common for some individuals. In many cases, this is due to dental decay, but it can also be caused by erosion of the dental enamel. This condition is common in those individuals who grind their teeth. A nightguard designed to be worn while sleeping can put an end to the erosion.

Tooth sensitivity often responds to special desensitizing toothpastes. Such products work to block the receptors that trigger sensitivity. Tooth enamel is also strengthened when these products are regularly used.

Tooth pain is also common for those who are going through orthodontic therapy. The realignment process in which teeth are being moved into a new position can cause tooth pain. This discomfort usually occurs when an adjustment to a new position is first made and subsides after a few days.

Sinus infections can also cause tooth pain in the upper jaw. When this is the case, treating the infection will relieve tooth pain.

Treatment for Jaw Pain

Teeth grinding or clenching is usually the cause of jaw pain. Over-the-counter pain medications can relieve the discomfort temporarily. However, additional intervention may be necessary to completely eliminate the pain. Wearing a nightguard to cushion the teeth and prevent grinding and clenching eases the stress put on the jaw joints. Trauma to the joint through injury can also cause pain. Proper diagnosis is required for adequate treatment of jaw pain.

Examination of the affected area can determine the source of your tooth or jaw pain. You can treat the symptoms or make an appointment with Dr. Wang and find out the root cause of your pain. Contact Engineered Smiles today to schedule an appointment.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
