Endodontic treatment in Southwest Las Vegas restores health and beauty of a toothPosted By Dr. Christopher Lim
Signs to watch for that may indicate a tooth infection include:
- Sensitivity of the tooth to hot or cold
- Throbbing pain in a tooth
- Swelling of the gums around a tooth
- Pain when pressure is placed on the tooth, as in chewing
Any persistent or severe discomfort from a tooth should be evaluated by the dentist promptly. Ignoring an infected tooth could ultimately lead to tooth loss or allow infection to spread beyond the tooth to gums and even bone tissue. Residents in and around Southwest Las Vegas are encouraged to call Hillside Dental for an appointment, and allow Dr. Christopher Lim to conduct a professional evaluation. With compassion and expertise, he will advise you of the best solution to restore the health and beauty of your smile.
