Bronx tooth removal
Pain is a signal from the nervous system to the brain that something is wrong. When the pain is in a tooth it means that something is not right within or near that tooth, usually the problem involves some sort of decay or infection. When the pain comes from one of the third molars in the very back of the mouth it may be a signal that it may be time for Bronx tooth removal. Our Urgent Care Dental practice handles dental emergencies such as toothaches and traumatic injuries as well as the full range of general, cosmetic and restorative dental services.
Pain and a dental emergency are not the only reason for wisdom teeth extraction. Often a wisdom tooth is extracted because it is unable to erupt through the gum for some reason or the mouth would be too crowded with the wisdom tooth, or the tooth is coming in crooked. Many dentists are in favor of extracting all four of the wisdom teeth at one time before they can cause problems. Symptoms of an impacted wisdom tooth include facial swelling, pain, gum swelling and infection. Wisdom teeth extractions are similar to other Bronx tooth removal of any of the other teeth but may require some additional steps if it has become impacted or has not yet erupted through the skin.
Bronx tooth removal is less painful than they once were because of advances in anesthesia and sedation. The majority of patient’s have no pain and little discomfort during or after the procedure. Prior to the procedure the area around the tooth is numbed using either a topical or injected local anesthetic such as novocaine. Once the tooth has been pulled the site may require a stitch or two but usually doesn’t. The patient must keep the area clean to avoid infection and our doctor may prescribe a precautionary antibiotic and the patient should avoid certain hard foods for several days. Talk to our doctor about your wisdom teeth to avoid problems down the road.
When your teeth are in pain, you want a solution fast. Unfortunately, most emergency rooms are not equipped to handle dental emergencies. At an emergency room you will probably experience long wait times and large copays with no real resolution to your dental issue. However, at Urgent Care Dental, our Riverdale dentist understands that and we will work swiftly to make sure your mouth is back to normal as soon as possible.
At times, you may have dental pain and not know why. For example, sudden pain may be caused by pieces of food that come in contact with a decayed area of the tooth. Food, heat or cold may create pressure near the nerve and cause pain. It is important to receive treatment from our emergency dental as soon as possible as oral and tooth infections can become more serious as time passes. For example, when the inside of your mouth gets hurt or irritated, bacteria may enter and cause an infection. Sometimes you will see a painful swelling filled with pus (a thick, yellowish fluid). If the pus can’t drain out, the area will get more swollen and painful. This is known as an abscess. The abscess forms a barrier around the infection. This is one way that your body tries to keep a bacterial infection from spreading. Our Riverdale dentist can provide instant treatment for your dental emergency, as well as long-term solutions to remedy decayed, damaged or missing teeth due to oral infections. We are skilled in the art of both cosmetic and restorative dentistry.
