Tooth Pain

Tooth pain may be caused by a number of factors. When you visit our office, Dr. Tanya Vlacancich will evaluate your mouth to determine the source of your discomfort and create a treatment plan that will alleviate your discomfort and improve your oral health. Call us today at 718-747-0020 to schedule your appointment with our dentist and learn more about treatments for tooth pain in College Point and Whitestone, New York.

Toothaches are a common dental problem and are characterized by pain from the tooth, the area surrounding a tooth or the jawline area near a particular tooth. Occasionally, a toothache will stem from the jaw joint. Common causes of toothaches include:

  • Cavities
  • Cracked teeth
  • Periodontal disease
  • Exposed tooth roots

Toothaches may also be the result of other medical conditions, such as ear infections, sinus infections and heart attacks.

When you come to our practice with a toothache, our dentist will take X-rays of your teeth and supporting structures and examine your mouth to determine the source of your discomfort. After diagnosing the cause of your toothache, we will design a treatment plan to relieve your pain and help you regain your oral health.

If you have a toothache, you may also develop symptoms other than pain. If you experience any of these symptoms, it may be a sign that you require more extensive treatment. Please inform our dentist and team if you notice any of the following symptoms:

  • Gums that are swollen, red or tender
  • Gums that bleed easily
  • Gums that pull away from your teeth
  • Persistent bad breath or a bad taste that lingers in your mouth
  • Loose teeth
  • Teeth are misaligned
  • Increased tooth sensitivity
  • Pain that causes you to avoid brushing certain areas
  • Pain when biting or chewing

We strongly encourage you to schedule and keep all routine appointments for preventive care. This will help prevent toothaches and other dental problems so that you can continue enjoying a healthy smile.

What Patients Are Saying

  • I had scheduled an appointment with Dr. Vlacancich while my usual dentist was on vacation, and the office made time to see me very quickly. I was able to fill out my paperwork online, making the process extremely easy when I arrived at the office. Dr. Vlacancich and her staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and talked me through every step, even fitting me in for a cleaning after my issue was resolved. I can't say enough good things. There was not a single bit of pain, and I will definitely be returning for my next cleaning as well as recommending Dr. Vlacancich to my friends and family.

She makes coming to the dentist a non-event and we always look forward to having our check up and cleaning every time. Her staff is friendly and always makes us feel welcomed. We would recommend her highly to anyone looking for a dentist in the area.
