Is it an ordinary toothache, or something more serious?
Your dental partners are also your partners in health. We’re happy to see more family physicians are acknowledging that connection between the mouth and the rest of the body.

You may be familiar with the connection between untreated gum disease and the vascular inflammation linked to heart disease and stroke. You may not be as familiar with the jaw and mouth related symptoms of these conditions. As a society, we have the tendency to focus on “commonly-cited” symptoms of a heart attacks or strokes, such as pain on the left side of the body. But women may experience symptoms that you don’t read about as commonly online. These include:
  • Jaw pain or discomfort
  • Particularly pronounced pain in the lower jaw
  • Discomfort seemingly originating from the jaw worsens when twisting from side-to-side
  • Mouth pain that gets worse with deep breath, persists at rest or, conversely, during physical activity
Usually, if tooth or jaw pain is the only worrisome condition, TMJ dysfunction or other dental problems are to blame. If accompanied by other types of symptoms, underlying medical conditions such as cancers, sinus infections, and salivary stones may be to blame.
Don’t doubt. Call your health partners without delay.

Randolf Say (January 2017)

"Dr. Adam and his crew are a delight to have and a must go to for your dental care. I've been under their care for about three years and always had a pleasant visit. Just had a veneer placed and it was quick, easy, and painless. I will definitely recommend my family, friends, and Veterans to see him and Kristen for their service"

Toothache, Emergency, Pain
Article 01 Image, Dentist Sacramento
Just like medical care, you never know when an emergency situation will occur. This is why Sacramento area practices also provide emergency dental care as needed for new and existing patients. Situations never occur at a convenient time, which is why it is nice to have a dental professional on your side to assist with the unexpected as they happen.
