There are many reasons why a patient may have a toothache in New York

If you have a tooth which is causing a lot of oral pain, you may even need to request an emergency appointment to see our dentist for emergency dental care. One of the most common reasons a patient will have a toothache is because they have a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp at its center. If this is the case, you will need to have a root canal treatment to save the tooth. Our dentist will let you know if this is indeed the case, and whether or not your tooth can be saved by a root canal. Happily, root canal treatments are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. If our emergency dentist determines that your tooth is infected but cannot be saved with a root canal treatment, he can to extract the tooth to rid you of your tooth pain, and stop the development of any infection which may have begun. If you need to have the tooth replaced, our dentist can replace the tooth with a dental implant or a dental bridge. If the tooth pain is caused by a wisdom tooth, our dentist may simply recommend that the tooth is extracted. When wisdom teeth are extracted they do not need to be replaced because they are not necessary for the patient to chew effectively or speak clearly. Toothaches can also be caused by dental cavities, and can fully be treated at our office.
