The most common causes of toothaches are cavities and tooth infections. Both of these things are caused by tooth decay. Tooth infections may also lead to an abscess, another common cause of toothaches.

A toothache is a clear indication that there is something wrong. If you are suffering from a toothache, please call 703-323-8200 today to schedule an appointment with Fairfax general dentist Dr. Pamela Marzban for prompt and effective treatment.

Treating Toothaches

There are a number of general dentistry solutions that can be used to address toothaches. The one best suited to meet your needs will depend on the cause of your toothache and the extent of damage that has led to it.

Some common toothache treatments include:

  • Dental fillings
  • Root canal
  • Dental crowns

Dr. Marzban will work individually with you to ensure you receive the treatment best suited to address your particular issues.

While there are a number of ways to treat a toothache, avoiding the causes is preferable. You can help prevent decay and infection by brushing your teeth after every meal and snack, flossing at least once a day, and visiting our Fairfax general dentist every six months for professional cleanings and thorough examinations.

If you live in or around Fairfax, Virginia and are suffering from a toothache, please contact Dr. Pamela Marzban today to schedule an appointment.
