You don’t have to live with a toothache! Contact G.R. Sheumaker, Jr. DDS to get rid of it, once and for all.

The poet Robert Burns wrote the following, titled “Address to the Tooth-Ache.”

                My curse upon your venom’d stang

                That shoots my tortur’d gums alang

                And thro’ my lugs gies mony a twang,

                Wi’ gnawing vengeance;

                Tearing my nerves wi’ bitter pang,

                Like racking engines!

Young Woman with a ToothacheWhile the words from this 1700’s poem may be old-fashioned, the sentiment is timeless. Toothaches are no fun. In fact, they can be downright awful. People in Lakeland, Florida may be quick to see a doctor for aches and pains, but often ignore toothaches for far too long. If consistent pain lasts longer than 2 days, consider making an appointment with G.R. Sheumaker, Jr. DDS. We have been treating toothaches for a long time and will help you find and eliminate the root of the pain. Our professional and friendly staff will put your mind at ease and provide you with the best possible treatment.

In order to ease the pain, it is important to first figure out why it exists. There are many reasons why you may be experiencing a toothache. You may have an abscessed or fractured tooth, a damaged filling or excessive tooth decay. It may be as simple as grinding your teeth when you sleep or because you are stressed.

Dr. Sheumaker will ask about your medical history, as well as some questions about the toothache itself to better understand how to treat you. How long has the pain been going on? How severe is it? What makes it worse or helps to alleviate the pain? You may need x-rays to help identify where the ache is stemming from. After a thorough checkup, we will be able to decide the best course of action. Call Dr. Sheumaker today to schedule an appointment and get you back to a life without “tortured gums” and “gnawing vengeance.” Don’t delay– your teeth will be grateful!
