When you have a toothache 11530
, you want just one thing, and that's relief for the pain as soon as possible. Here at The Gentle Dentist, we offer prompt appointments for emergencies. We don't want our valued patients to suffer needlessly.
Treatment for your toothache 11530
is going to be dependent on the reason why you have it. Jaw conditions, notably TMJ disorder; and advanced gum disease can lead to toothaches, but most often the problem is in the tooth itself. You may have a cavity, or a filling from a previous cavity has come loose or fallen out. A chipped or cracked tooth will also make you prone to pain. In all the above cases, your inner tooth, and especially the nerve, are exposed. There are two things to keep in mind. First is that the sooner you get treatment for your toothache 11530
, the more likely the solution will be a simple one. The goal is to restore the barriers that are normally in place to protect the tooth and keep the nerve shielded. The second concern is that bacteria can get inside the tooth and lead to inflammation and infection in the pulp, which is alongside the nerve. If that happens, you won't be looking at a simple filling or crown, but root canal instead. If you've heard stories about root canal that make it seem scary, we'd like to set the record straight. This vital procedure has benefitted (and you along with it) from technological advancements. Furthermore, our practice is not called The Gentle Dentist for no reason. Not only will you be given local anesthesia, but we have sedation available, as well, if you would like.
Your toothache leads us to urgent action, so contact us immediately. Better still, keep our number programmed in all your phones for quick access.
