At Urgent Care Dental our Bronx urgent dentist handles many different emergencies on a daily basis. This includes dislodged or avulsed teeth and cracked teeth. Toothaches can also be painful and irritating. That’s why we offer emergency dentistry services and perform emergency fillings and extractions quickly in office.
Sometimes a toothache may become more severe and require an emergency root canal procedure by our Bronx urgent dentist. Tooth pain can feel like sharp pain while eating hot or cold foods or sensitivity to heat or cold when it touches the tooth. A cracked tooth or cavity can also cause tooth pain and sensitivity. If the pain is severe, you should come in for an appointment immediately. Severe pain could be the sign of an abscess or infection, which can spread quickly. Root canals are done when the pulp inside a tooth becomes infected. The pulp nourishes the tooth around it, keeping it healthy and fed. When the pulp becomes damaged, a root canal procedure is needed to clean out the damaged pulp and seal the tooth off so that nothing can get in. A toothache may signify the need for a filling or emergency root canal.
Our Bronx urgent dentist may use the root canal procedure as a way to save the tooth from extraction. If you have a toothache, don’t wait to call us. If a cavity has caused tooth decay and needs a root canal, we can remove the infected pulp before cleaning and sealing it. After the root canal, we then put a crown over the tooth to protect it. Call us today, and if you are suffering from a dental emergency, call us immediately to schedule an appointment at one of our offices in either Scarsdale or Riverdale.
