Toothache Marietta GA

Your teeth are meant to last for a lifetime, but that does not always work out. Many people suffer damage to a tooth in random accidents, getting hit in the face, or from neglectful dental care. Thankfully, the teeth can be repaired – but you can’t delay seeking treatment.

Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body, but that does not mean it is invincible. Something as innocent as chewing on a pen lid or biting your fingernails can cause a tooth to crack. People will often have a crack in a tooth without knowing it, and then a small instance like biting down on a hard food will break the tooth. Cavities and tooth erosion can also weaken the teeth, making them incredibly susceptible to breaking. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that people limit the following foods and beverages due to their acid contents:

  • Soft drinks
  • Alcohol
  • Sports drinks
  • Coffee
  • Citrus
  • Dried fruit

Hard candies and ice should also not be chewed because they can easily damage a tooth.

Symptoms of a broken tooth are very obvious. Pain, blood, and a missing portion of a tooth are the top indicators that a tooth is broken. If you or a loved one has a broken tooth, you must seek emergency dental attention. If damage is done to the nerve of a tooth, an emergency root canal may be necessary.

Not all broken teeth can be saved, but follow these steps to increase your chances:

  1. Rinse your mouth with warm saltwater.
  2. Find the portion of the tooth that broke off and place it in a cup with milk or your saliva.
  3. Call your dentist immediately.
  4. Ask your dentist about taking an over-the-counter pain reliever if you are in intense pain.

I am proud to give Mansouri Family Dental Care a 5 star review. They have built a beautiful facility in Marietta. Nicola always cleans my teeth. I would give her more that 5 stars if that was an option. I know I get personal attention and an excellent cleaning. Thank you Nicola.

Nate M.

What a wonderful dental care team! They took great care of my wife and I, and even gave great accommodations for my wife who is very scared of the dentist. They were very transparent with billing and answered all our medical questions clearly and quickly.

I’m very pleased with this practice. I’ve been a patient there for a few years and I really trust Dr Mansouri’s diagnosis and treatment. I was having a lot issues with my jaw and teeth and he told me exactly the treatment I needed and now finally my issue was resolved. I also love Nicola my hygienist. She is very thorough with my cleaning. I highly recommend this practice!!!
