Posted on 12/25/2019 by Shiv Sharma, DDS
Oral pain is one of the most serious pains anyone can experience. Because of the way the nervous system is set up, you find that a lot of the nerves in the mouth are also connected to the head.
This means that most oral pain usually spreads and reaches other parts of the body, such as the head and neck. In such cases, people often run for pain killing medication; something to stop the pain as soon as possible. While this might work in the short term, it might hinder you from getting to the bottom of the situation. When you experience oral pain a couple of times, it is important to come in and see us so that we can get to the root of the matter.
When you have oral pain a couple of times, it makes sense to get to the root of the problem so that it can be fixed. In this case, when you come and see us, one of the most important things we'll do is perform various oral exams to see whether we might be having some issues on some fronts. When these tests are complete, we can then make an informed decision as to what is wrong and what it will take to get things on the right path again.
If the pain is too much, then you will need some medication to pull you through. When you attempt to self-medicate, you will often end up taking some over the counter drugs and hoping that they work. When you come in, however, you have full confidence that the prescribed medications will work. If the pain is too much, the doctor might even prescribe some drugs that are available on prescription only. This way, you get the help you need without the guess work.
Seeing us is very important. When you come in, we will do a wide range of test and exams to see whether your teeth and mouth in general is healthy. As a result, you get to know the root of the problem and fix It permanently. By self-diagnosing and medicating you place yourself at unnecessary risk which can be avoided very easily.
