Practicing since 2001
"Always a pleasure to visit Dr. Vatan's office. "
"It was quick and easy getting my regular cleaning. My mouth felt fresh and clean. Staff was polite and the gygenist was wonderful."
"This was my first appointment with Dr. Vatan. The work was more extensive than we had hoped although within the scope that Dr. Vatan had outlined as possible. As a result it took much longer than anticipated. Dr. Vatan never seemed rushed or agitated by the extra time it took. He continued to explain what was happening and why it was taking so long. The extra unscheduled time must have been very hard for the office to accommodate but no one complained or seemed hurried. At the end the appointment ran into my next meeting and I needed to hurry. The office was fantastically cooperative with getting me done as fast as possible without compromising care. For example, Monica had all the paperwork printed and ready to go. It was as good an experience as a four hour dental appointment can be."

Just recently went back to a new one because I found a hole in my tooth. They filled it, told me that I had gingivitis. Went back the next day smoothed my tooth a little they said my gums got irritated and that the pain would go away, call if worse But by the weekend it was in the teeth themselves, they would have a sharp pain going through the tooth, through the gums then up to a muscle under my eye. Okay so now it's Monday and I still have pain all over my mouth.
It sounds like the nerve is infected and the tooth may require a root canal. Antibiotics and an anti-inflammatory medication, such as motrin, are needed to help control the swelling and pain. There is a slight chance that the pain and infection are from the gums, which may then just need a deep cleaning around the gums, and not a root canal. Good luck.
