You just loaded up your plate for a Thanksgiving meal with people you love. The spread includes delicious turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and more desserts that you need.
As you prepare for your first bite, you anticipate how wonderful it’s going to taste. But when you take that bite, something unexpected happens. A tooth begins to hurt a lot. You power through it and take a second bite. This time, the pain is worse — much worse — and you know that you won’t be eating anymore.
Your aching tooth could become a dental emergency.

Don’t Let A Little Issue Become A Big Problem
We’ve seen the consequences of ignoring a minor issue too many times. A patient who has noticed the tell-tale signs of tooth decay (discolored tooth, increased tooth sensitivity) just hopes the issues will go away on their own.
Instead, the decay spreads. The pain gets worse, and eventually, the patient feels like they have no choice but to make an appointment. By that point, a simple dental filling isn’t enough to solve the problem.
No, they need a dental crown or a root canal. In the most serious cases, the problematic tooth needs to be removed and replace. We can handle all of those things, but for your sake, we would rather take care of problems in the early stages.
You can avoid more expensive treatments by visiting us for a dental cleaning and exam sooner rather than later.
Eat What You Want
When eating leads to pain, that is a problem for multiple reasons. First and foremost, you need to eat to stay healthy. More specifically, you need a balanced diet.
If biting and chewing causes pain, you may find yourself avoiding certain foods by choice or by necessity. In either case, your oral health problem is interfering with your quality of life.
By taking action today to remove tooth decay and get a compositive filling, you can repair your tooth and recreate your complete smile. With one of our tooth-colored fillings, your smile can look natural.
Plus, when you have your tooth filling, you can bite and chew normally again. That means you can eat what you want during Thanksgiving, throughout the holiday season, and for years to come with proper care of your teeth.
