I’m in Pain or Have DiscomfortHelping Patients Who Are In Pain or Have Discomfort Read Transcript
If you're in pain, we gotta get you out of pain. Sometimes that's as simple as saying, 'Sit in the chair, we're going to freeze that area up for you, make you numb, and then we're going to have a conversation about what's occurring.' It's one of the most important things for people. Until they're out of pain, they don't understand what's going on. The first thing is get them numb, get them comfortable, discuss the treatment options, give them choices about what can be done, and let them know that whatever we're going to do, we're going to do for them the best that we can.
Your teeth and gums shouldn’t hurt. If you have a dental pain or dental discomfort, it’s a sign you should call your dentist.

Comprehensive Exam And Treatment
Your dentist can figure out exactly what’s behind your dental pain or discomfort and advise the right treatment plan to bring you relief. To gather helpful information about your dental health, our office uses proven technology like digital X-rays.
Some possible restorative dentistry recommendations our Winnipeg, MB dentists might make for dental repairs are:
- Nonsurgical gum disease treatment to address pain created by gum disease, which causes swollen, tender, or bleeding gums.
- Tooth-coloured filling or dental crown to treat a cavity caused by tooth decay that’s causing your toothache. We even have a CEREC machine to make the process quick and simple!
- Root canal treatment for a tooth with infected pulp causing you pain and making your tooth sensitive to hot or cold foods and drinks. If a tooth cannot be saved by a root canal, tooth extraction is an option.
- Dental veneers can repair minor damage to your teeth like chips, cracks, and dents by covering them with a strong material like porcelain.
Some possible restorative dentistry recommendations our dentists might make for replacing missing teeth are:
- Dental implants, which root into your jaw like natural teeth, so they carry the benefit of slowing or stopping the bone loss that accompanies tooth loss.
- Dental implant-supported dentures, which rely on dental implants to create a secure, reliable hold, so your gums experience less irritation.
- Dental bridges, which use your natural teeth to hold your replacement teeth in place.
Both Dr. Doug McDermid and Dr. Rose Dhillon is a graduate of University of Manitoba Faculty of Dentistry, and they are one of the top-notch and trusted dentists in Winnipeg, MB.
