Saves A Natural Tooth
Repairs A Damaged Or Broken Tooth
Restores A Healthy Smile

TOOTH NERVE PAIN

A sudden, sharp pain in your tooth, as well as an ongoing throbbing dull discomfort, may be a sign that the nerves and tissues at the center of your tooth are possibly unhealthy. When the nerves at the center of your tooth have been infected or damaged, you can experience severe pain. Whether due to decay or trauma, nerve pain in the tooth indicates inflammation of the tissue in the pulp and surrounding nerves of your tooth. Throbbing tooth pain that comes and goes is just as much an indication of inflammation or infection as constant throbbing tooth pain.

Our New York City cosmetic dentist will perform a thorough dental exam to determine the cause of your toothache. In many cases, dental x-rays are taken to assess the condition of your jaw and teeth. For most patients, pain from a throbbing tooth results from a cavity or the exposure of the tooth root due to gum disease. Sohosmile® can treat tooth nerve pain with cavity fillings, root canal surgery, gum disease treatment, tooth extraction, or wisdom teeth removal.

TOOTH DECAY

Tooth decay can be the result of oral hygiene, genetics, diet, and/or environmental factors. The earlier tooth decay is detected, the better the chances are of reversing tooth decay and preventing its progression. Untreated tooth decay can lead to damaged and, eventually, missing teeth, as well as a dental infection that can worsen over time. Initial tooth decay leads to a dental cavity, which is when a hole forms in your tooth.

After a complete checkup of your teeth and gums, our cosmetic dentist can help you determine what tooth decay treatment is right for you. Your tooth decay treatment depends on how extensive the damage is to your teeth. Some of the most common tooth decay treatments include cavity fillings, porcelain crowns, root canal treatment, and tooth extraction.

TOOTH PAIN

Tooth pain can come on quickly as a sharp discomfort, or it can develop slowly as a dull, throbbing sensation. You may only notice the discomfort when you apply pressure on your teeth from eating or by touch. Most tooth pain arises from some kind of inflammation within the tooth. The extra blood flow that inflammation causes puts pressure on the nerves in your mouth.

To determine the cause of your tooth pain, our general and cosmetic dentist will perform a thorough dental examination and dental x-rays may be taken. Dr. Koutsoyiannis can help you determine which tooth pain treatment is right for your specific needs. Some of the most common tooth pain treatments include cavity fillings, root canal surgery, and tooth extraction. Click the buttons below to learn more about our tooth pain treatments.

JAW PAIN

Jaw pain can make it difficult for you to chew, talk, and even smile. In addition to pain, limited jaw mobility can further disrupt daily activities. The jaw is a complex structure comprised of muscles, bones, cartilage, and tendons. When there is a complication in these structures, you may experience popping noises, soreness, and difficulty opening or closing the mouth. Whether you have jaw pain on one or both sides of your face, Dr. Koutsoyiannis can help correct jaw discomfort.

To determine the cause of your jaw pain, an oral examination is performed and dental x-rays may be taken. This information can help our cosmetic dentist understand what may be causing your jaw pain. Once a diagnosis has been made, an effective treatment plan can be created. Dr. Koutsoyiannis offers TMJ treatments to improve jaw pain.

COMMON DENTAL PROBLEMS

BEFORE & AFTERS

SMALL TEETH

CAVITY FILLINGS

BROKEN TEETH REPAIRED WITH PORCELAIN VENEERS

BROKEN TEETH

A broken, cracked, or damaged tooth can occur due to an accident, trauma, or tooth decay. In many cases, sports-related injuries can cause a tooth to chip or become damaged. The most common teeth to break are those in the front of the smile, especially the upper front teeth. If left untreated, a damaged tooth can develop a hidden tooth fracture. A tooth fracture, especially in a front tooth, can lead to broken front teeth or even tooth loss.

A broken or damaged tooth should be treated as soon as possible. The quicker a broken tooth is treated, the more likely it is that our cosmetic dentist will be able to save the natural tooth. Professional broken tooth repair procedures include dental bonding, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, root canal surgery, and dental implants.

TOOTH INFECTION

Tooth pain may be a sign of a tooth infection, particularly when the pain is intense. A tooth can become infected when decay or damage to the tooth allows bacteria to get inside the tooth or under it. If a bacterial infection causes a pocket of pus to form under the tooth, it’s a painful condition known as a tooth abscess. An infection in your tooth can spread, creating a potentially dangerous health risk.

A common tooth infection is when bacteria have invaded the pulp chamber, causing intense, throbbing pain, which is known as a root canal infection. To treat this condition, a root canal procedure is likely needed. Our endodontist performs this outpatient procedure to remove the infected area and save the tooth. At the end of the procedure, our cosmetic dentist places a crown to protect the tooth. Other common tooth infection treatments include cavity fillings and tooth extraction. Learn more about these treatments by clicking the buttons below.

SMALL TEETH

Teeth that appear too small are often the result of excess gum tissue. Small teeth in adults may cause the gums to appear too prominent or give the teeth a squared, baby-tooth appearance. Our periodontist can lengthen the teeth by removing excess gum tissue. Crown lengthening is an effective method to alter the shape of the teeth, making them longer as needed.

In addition to crown lengthening, our cosmetic dentist also offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry services to improve the shape, size, and symmetry of the teeth. For some patients, the teeth may also need to be wider in addition to being lengthened. Dr. John Koutsoyiannis can help determine which treatment is right for you. We are proud to offer crown lengthening, dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and porcelain crowns to correct small teeth. Click the buttons below to learn more about these small teeth treatments.

PULPITIS

Pulpitis is a condition that causes inflammation of the dental pulp within the tooth, which often develops due to cavities, tooth decay, or dental trauma. Inside each tooth lies a soft center called the dental pulp. Because of the soft nature of this substance, a crack, infection, or break in the outer layer of the tooth’s enamel can cause inflammation and infection, otherwise known as pulpitis. Depending on the extent of the injury or disease causing the pulpitis, your mouth, neck, or face can swell or turn red. As with any inflammation or infection, pain is the most common symptom of pulpitis.

There are 2 types of pulpitis, including reversible pulpitis and irreversible pulpitis. With reversible pulpitis, you may experience limited inflammation and a high chance that the tooth can be effectively restored without root canal treatment. On the other hand, if the blood flow and circulation to the tooth have been compromised, the dental pulp can die. The ensuing infection turns into irreversible pulpitis. A root canal is often needed to treat irreversible pulpitis. We offer cavity fillings and root canal surgery to treat pulpitis. Learn more about these pulpitis treatments by clicking the buttons below.
