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.
Sedation Is Available At Our Dental Office Near Wichita
Sedation is offered for different reasons. One of the most common reasons is to calm an individual who has anxiety about being at the dentist. A child may require sedation for extra-long treatments to ensure the completion of safe and effective procedures. Patients who have a low pain tolerance, jaw issues, or a gag reflex are also able to receive sedation. Sedation allows the dentist to complete nearly any procedure safely and smoothly without the worry of a jumpy patient. Sedation allows the patient to undergo a treatment without the fear of the dentist or the possibility of pain.

Sedation options include IV sedation or nitrous oxide. IV sedation is more commonly used for lengthy treatments, to ease treatments for patients with TMJ, or for sensitive gag reflexes. Patients with extreme anxiety may be better candidates for IV sedation, while mild cases of anxiety may only require nitrous oxide (laughing gas).

Patient Reviews

"Extremely competent and professional

I have been seeing Dr. Mark Troilo for many years now and I would give him the highest possible recommendation. He is very compassionate, extremely competent and professional beyond compare. He and his staff are always friendly and even though they are all extremely busy caring for patients they always have taken a personal interest in their patients.

I live in Wichita and the drive to Rose Hill for care from Dr. Mark Troilo is more than worth it."
