Having a dental emergency? Call us!
We understand that dental emergencies don't always happen during regular business hours. We're open on Saturdays and here for you when you need us most.
Everyone at the office is very friendly and helpful, and the technicians are great. I feel like Westerville Dental is very much on top of the latest screening and monitoring techniques, and I really appreciate the thoroughness of the appointments in terms of measuring gum health as well as tooth health. I chose this place when I moved down here based on the good reviews, and I haven't been disappointed.
So professional AND friendly. I know that I am getting the best care for my whole family. Plus, the waiting area is beautiful and comfortable--like a living room!--with a special area for young ones to read and draw on the chalk boards.
So glad I found this office when I moved back to Ohio. I’ve had so many bad experiences at the dentist, this place is understanding and open to my questions, they explain everything and it really seems like they care. They also have an open and inviting waiting room that is beautiful.

There are various reasons why your tooth hurts when you chew. One common reason could be that you have an abscessed tooth.
If you have a tooth that is abscessed there are two options. In order to save the tooth it will need to be treated with a root canal. After a root canal, your dentist will most likely core and crown the tooth. The other option for an abscessed tooth is to have the tooth removed. While this is the cheaper option it will cause other teeth to shift and may cause other problems in the future.
The other reason a tooth may hurt to bite on is a cracked tooth.
The crack could be in the top portion of the tooth only or may go deeper into the tooth. Most dentists will treat a cracked tooth with a core and a crown, which will tie the tooth together and hopefully take care of the symptoms. If a crown alone does not help, the tooth will need a root canal. If you are having these symptoms please contact our office so we can diagnose what type of problem you are having.
