At North Broad Family Dental, we do everything possible to help you avoid a toothache, but once one has announced itself, you need prompt attention, and we’ll make sure that you get it.
Some of the more common reasons for the pain in your tooth are related to the inside of your tooth becoming exposed. The reason that your tooth has protective layers is to keep the pulp and nerve inside from damage and infection. However, when you have a large cavity, a loose or lost filling, or a chipped or cracked tooth, there is risk. A toothache is alerting you to that risk. Do not ignore it or put it off. Instead, let our emergency dentist Roselle examine you and evaluate the need for treatment. The longer your tooth is exposed, the more chance there is for an infection to take hold in the pulp. If that happens, instead of a simple filling or crown to cover up the breach in your tooth’s barriers, you will need root canal performed to address the infection and its effects. That’s the bad news, because having the simplest and least invasive care is always the top priority. The good news, though, is that our emergency dentist Roselle utilizes only the state-of-the-art methods and techniques for this essential procedure, so that you can not only rely on a high rate of success (about 90%), but also that you will be comfortable throughout. Most of our patients tell us that they noticed very little or even no pain at all. Sedation is available if you are still nervous, however. In the end, what matters most is that your tooth remains strong and viable.
