When a patient has a toothache, we know that it most often needs immediate care. This is necessary not only to make our patient comfortable again, but also so that the tooth can have the best chance of recovery. Often times a patient comes into our practice when they need to see our Staten Island NY emergency dentist regarding tooth pain. If a tooth has damaged or infected pulp in the center, it will need to have a root canal treatment in order to be saved. If the tooth is in this condition and does not have a root canal procedure, the tooth will eventually fall out on its own, or need to be extracted. The sooner a root canal procedure is performed, the more likely it is to be effective. So, at the earliest sign of tooth pain, we urge you to contact us to see our emergency dentist for immediate care. Wisdom teeth can also be the cause of toothaches. This is because wisdom teeth can develop many problems while trying to erupt. Since the wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the mouth to come in, there is often no room left for the teeth, and problems occur. When wisdom teeth are causing pain or other types of dental problems, it is usually recommended that they are extracted since wisdom teeth are not needed in the mouth for chewing, or for proper speech. There are times when a dental cavity can cause a toothache when you eat something that is sweet. In this case, the problem can be easily solved by our dentist treating the dental cavity and providing you with a dental filling.
