Give our office a call as soon as possible. We will try our best to fit you in, Dr. Jackson has even stayed late some afternoons to squeeze people in to give them at least a little more comfort until they can be properly treated. We have diagnostic protocol (x-rays, tests) we will go through to see exactly what could be the cause of your pain. In the rare instance that we cannot pinpoint what is going on, we will refer you to an Endodontist (tooth pain specialist). Often a tooth infection is the cause of pain. If this is the case, a simple prescription of antibiotics can give a major relief until permanent treatment can be provided. As is with everything else, if you let us know of this issue ASAP, we can most likely save your tooth.
