She also believes strongly that every person deserves compassion and respect, so her patients feel comfortable and at ease when visiting her. She treats most of the common problems that can arise with a smile.
Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body. Some people are surprised to learn that it is even stronger than bone. However, it isn’t completely impervious to damage. When subjected to enough force, enamel can crack. This may happen when chewing on very hard objects (such as popcorn kernels, ice, or hard candy), or due to a traumatic impact (such as in sports). Clenching and grinding the teeth weaken the enamel over time and make it more likely that a tooth will crack.
Cracked teeth should be identified and treated quickly, to reduce the likelihood that the crack will worsen and cause more serious problems. If you have noticed a cracked tooth or are experiencing bothersome symptoms, you need treatment as soon as possible. In some cases, waiting to seek treatment can lead to the tooth requiring extraction because the damage may extend into the root.
If you are experiencing pain when chewing or have a visible crack in one of your teeth, schedule an appointment with Dr. Levine as soon as possible. Remember that waiting to seek treatment could result in the loss of the tooth and could even threaten your general health. Dr. Levine will explain your condition and your treatment options. Her compassion and respect for her patients helps them feel at ease, even when dealing with painful problems.
A toothache can range from a mild, intermittent annoyance to severe pain that makes it difficult to complete your daily activities. In some cases, a toothache indicates a serious problem that needs dental care right away. It’s better to visit a dentist early than to wait until the toothache becomes excruciating, because many dental problems are much easier to treat during their early stages.
The most important thing is to find the source of the pain. Dr. Ursula Levine will use state-of-the-art technology along with her years of advanced training and experience to arrive at a diagnosis and perform the treatment that will get you back to oral health. In addition, she understands how unpleasant a toothache can be. Her compassionate manner helps to put patients at ease.
