Millions of people, including plenty right here in North Naples, are suffering from dental pain. The worst part is, while the reasons for this might be obvious for some (a cavity or chipped tooth), many are completely baffled as to what is causing their discomfort. Fortunately, Dr. Hoop has been helping patients in this situation for 30 years. With his experience and technology, he can help someone discover the source of their pain and provide a direct way to treat it.
Some cavities develop between the teeth and are hidden from the naked eye. While damage to the outer enamel may only cause some minor sensitivity, an untreated cavity can lead to an infection of the interior dental pulp, creating quite a bit of pressure and pain.
Dental cracks, whether due to an injury or simply biting into a hard piece of food, can often be so thin and small that they are virtually invisible. They expose the inside of the tooth to infection and can increase temperature sensitivity. Dr. Hoop can use fiber optic transillumination to easily locate these cracks.
Teeth grinding is an unconscious habit that often occurs while someone sleeps. It can wear down the enamel, removing protection from the sensitive dental nerve, plus it can cause small cracks like those detailed above.
