My Tooth Cracked While I Was Sleeping

About a year ago, I woke up with the most awful pain in my mouth. I knew instantly that it was a toothache, but I could not figure out why it was hurting because it was fine the previous night when I had brushed my teeth. I knew that I had to go to my dentist in Greenwood Village, and I was just hoping she could see me that morning. I normally don’t panic when something goes wrong like a pain or ache, and I always give it time to heal. However, there was no reason my tooth should be hurting this way, and I wanted to find out what was wrong in case it was something serious.

Thankfully, my dentist was able to get me in that same day. She did an examination, and she was able to see that there was a crack in my tooth. I had no idea how that had even happened, and she really could not tell me either. The bottom line was that it was there, and I had to get it taken care of. I decided to go ahead and have her fix it there, and it did not take as long as I thought it would.

As soon as she numbed the area, I was so relieved. It was the first time that entire day that I was not able to feel that throbbing pain. If you have never had a toothache before, be very grateful because it is one of the worst pains a person can go through. She had my tooth fixed in no time though, and I didn’t even need to have a follow up appointment. I went back in about four months for my regular cleaning and checkup, and she told me that everything still looked good with that tooth!
