Tooth pain can arise at the most unexpected times for several reasons. If you’ve had a toothache before, you know that pain relief will become a top priority, if it isn’t already. At the office of Richard L. Rodgers II, DDS, FAGD, your pain relief is our top priority as well. However, we don’t want to just treat the pain, we want to fix the problem.
