Severe Toothache Treatment

At Dr. Kathy Zahedi DDS, we understand the agony of severe toothaches. Our compassionate team in Santa Monica offers swift, expert care to relieve your pain and restore your dental health. Trust us for personalized, gentle treatments that bring lasting comfort and peace of mind. Your smile’s health is our priority.


A severe toothache is more than just a dull, occasional pain. It’s a sharp, persistent pain that can make it hard to focus on anything else. It often feels like a throbbing or stabbing sensation, and it might get worse when you eat or drink something hot or cold. Sometimes, the pain can spread to your jaw, ear, or even your head, making it feel like your whole face is aching.

If you’re experiencing a severe toothache, it’s your body’s way of telling you that something isn’t right. It could be a sign of a cavity, an infection, or another dental issue that needs attention. The best thing to do is to contact us right away so we can help you find relief and get to the root of the problem. Remember, you don’t have to suffer through the pain—we’re here to help!

Dealing with a severe toothache can be really tough. But At Dr. Kathy Zahedi DDS, we offer prompt solution. Here are some of the ways we can help:

  1. Thorough Examination and Diagnosis: First, we’ll take a close look at your tooth to figure out what’s causing the pain. This might involve taking X-rays to get a better view of what’s going on beneath the surface.

  2. Fillings: If your toothache is due to a cavity, a filling can repair the damage and stop the pain. We’ll clean out the decayed part of your tooth and fill it with a durable material to restore its shape and function.

  3. Root Canal Therapy: For pain caused by an infection or inflammation deep inside the tooth, a root canal can provide relief. This treatment involves removing the infected tissue, cleaning the inside of the tooth, and sealing it to prevent further issues.

  4. Tooth Extraction: In some cases, if the tooth is too damaged to be saved, we might recommend removing it. Don’t worry—this is usually a last resort, and we’ll discuss all your options with you first.

  5. Antibiotics: If an infection is causing your toothache, we might prescribe antibiotics to help clear it up. This can often be an important step in managing the pain and preventing further complications.

  6. Pain Relief: We can also recommend or prescribe medications to help manage your pain and make you more comfortable while we treat the underlying issue.

No matter what’s causing your severe toothache, our team is dedicated to finding the right solution for you. We’ll work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your pain and helps you get back to feeling your best. Remember, you don’t have to endure the pain—reach out to us, and we’ll take care of the rest!

We understand that a severe toothache can be incredibly distressing, and we’re here to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Here’s what you can expect when you come in for a severe toothache treatment appointment:

  1. Warm Welcome: As soon as you arrive, our friendly team will greet you and make sure you feel at ease. We know that dental visits can be a bit nerve-wracking, so we’re here to support you every step of the way.

  2. Detailed Discussion: We’ll start by having a conversation with you about your symptoms. This helps us understand your pain and how it’s affecting your daily life. Feel free to share any concerns or questions you have—your comfort and peace of mind are our top priorities.

  3. Thorough Examination: Next, we’ll conduct a thorough examination of your mouth and teeth. This may include taking X-rays to get a clear picture of what’s happening beneath the surface. We’ll be gentle and explain each step as we go.

  4. Diagnosis and Treatment Plan: Once we have all the information, we’ll explain the cause of your toothache and discuss the best treatment options. We believe in clear and open communication, so we’ll make sure you understand your choices and what to expect from each treatment.

  5. Treatment: Depending on the diagnosis, we’ll proceed with the appropriate treatment. This could be a filling, root canal therapy, tooth extraction, or another procedure. We’ll ensure you’re comfortable throughout the process and use numbing agents to minimize any discomfort.

  6. Aftercare Instructions: After your treatment, we’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help you heal quickly and comfortably. We’ll also schedule any necessary follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure everything is healing properly.

  7. Support and Follow-Up: Our care doesn’t end when you leave the office. If you have any questions or concerns after your appointment, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re here to help you every step of the way.
