Toothaches can have various indications as to the reason why they have occurred and the type of treatments that they need. Regardless of the why, we at Urgent Care Dental are concerned with taking care of the situation immediately. It’s what we’re dedicated to. We’re here 7 days per week, and during the typical hours when other dentists have gone off duty. Because of this, you will never have to suffer while waiting. Prompt care for your toothache in the Bronx is our priority.
Although on rarer occasions, tooth pain might be traced back to a jaw condition, such as TMJ disorder, or even the effects of advanced gum disease, the most common causes are tooth decay, a lost filling, a chipped or cracked tooth, and damage or infection of the tooth’s pulp. Tooth decay forms cavities, and cavities need to be filled. Likewise, a lost filling needs to be replaced with a new one. Chips and cracks require a different method of treatment, but the one thing that is true of all the above causes is that your tooth’s normal protective barriers have become compromised. The inner portion of your tooth is exposed, and that is the reason why you have a toothache in the Bronx. Chipped or cracked teeth are remedied with the placement of a crown (cap), which must be made at the dental lab. Fortunately, you can get a temporary one put on to protect the tooth while you’re waiting for the permanent one to be made. And for infected or damaged pulp, the treatment is root canal. The good news is that advanced technology has now made the procedure one that is comfortable and that produces minimal or no discomfort at all while being done.
