grinding and clenching of teeth is something we know how to help with before it really causes
permanent damage.

These are most often signs of an infection brewing that might really spill over into a serious toothache.

* Throbbing tooth pain during Allergy Season- The sinuses are spaces above the upper back teeth that
get filled up and inflamed during allergy season. Sometimes the roots of the upper back teeth are so
close to the sinus that people are sure they need dental care. At Belmont Dental Group we are
experienced and expert at telling the difference between Sinus Pain and Tooth Pain. We have helped a
whole lot of people avoid unnecessary dental procedures because we can tell the difference.
