Riverdale Toothache

Common causes of toothaches in Riverdale

Why is it that toothaches seem to show up at the most inconvenient times? It’s for such reasons that we at Urgent Care Dental are pleased to be here for you when other dentists are not. Whatever the reason behind your pain, when you need immediate attention, we’re the place to go.

There are three main causes of toothaches: cavities, fillings that have loosened or fallen out, and chipped and cracked teeth. One thing that all of them share in common is that they are the result of an opening in your tooth’s natural defenses. Inside is a nerve and pulp. Your tooth is surrounded by dentin and around that is enamel. So your teeth stay safe and free of pain. Your Riverdale toothache comes about when one of the causes listed above have exposed your inner tooth. The nerve can now be affected by the air, or by the extremes of hot and cold in the foods you eat and the beverages you drink. That’s bad enough, but things could get even worse. Bacteria can get inside the tooth, where the pulp is then infected. Your Riverdale toothache could be accompanied by other symptoms, among which are pain when chewing or putting pressure on the tooth, gum tenderness, tooth discoloration, and swelling. In such as situation, there is a risk of losing the tooth. In all situations where you have tooth pain or other related symptoms, you need prompt treatment, either to avoid an infection or to address one.

If diagnosed and handled early enough, your Riverdale toothache may only need a filling or a crown to repair it. Even if root canal is necessary, we can assure you that with the advanced techniques and equipment used at our office, you will not have to worry about pain.
