When we see patients in our office, we have seen numerous issues. However, every issue has a solution and our professionals work to help you achieve the best possible solution for your dental issue.
If you are experiencing tooth numbness, it is important to speak with our dentists. This numbness can be the cause of a number of things and it is important to have them assessed in our office.
Causes of a Numb Tooth
When the roots of the tooth start to die, this can cause the tooth root to die. This can cause a pins and needles type of feeling. This is when the tooth starts to become numb. The tooth dying is not something you want to deal with, but when it happens, it is best to speak with our professionals.
The numbness needs to be assessed because this can be a cause of an underlying problem that needs to be addressed by our office and professionals. If you have a tingling feeling in that part of your mouth, it could be the cause of the root of the tooth starting to go numb. Any time that this is felt, it is something our dentist needs to look at, because the numbness can travel through the gums to the other teeth, infecting them, as well.
It is important to speak with our dental professionals regarding the numbness that is being felt in the mouth for the teeth. You can give us a call today to find out a time to come in and see us. Having the issue addressed at our office is the best thing you can do for your oral health and well-being.
