Few things can draw your focus away from everything else going on like a toothache in Riverdale can. And worse still, it often seems that the onset of tooth pain coincides with the time when most dental offices are closing their doors for the day, or even for the weekend. We at Urgent Care Dental have created an office where we are available during the times when you would not expect to get top dental attention. With hours from 4:00-9:00 pm on weekdays, and 9:00 am-5:00 pm on the weekends, turn to us for diagnosing and treating toothaches.
At the most serious end of the spectrum of reasons why you might have a toothache in Riverdale is an infection of abscess. Usually, this is accompanied by pain, often severe. If you don’t seek out treatment promptly, you could very well lose the tooth entirely. In such a situation, the care you need is a root canal. And while it has gotten a reputation as being unpleasant, that refers to the root canals of a long time ago. Today, you should feel very little or even no pain at all. And best of all, it rescues a tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted, and thereby leave you with empty space and the need for a replacement. If you’re fortunate, your toothache in Riverdale may just be due to a lost filling or a cavity that needs to be newly filled. This is probably the simplest remedy for tooth pain. Among the other causes are a chipped or cracked tooth, a jaw problem like TMJ disorder, or advanced gum disease.
There is certainly no time to waste when you have pain in your tooth. And since we’re available to you during the off hours of the majority of dentists, have our contact information handy for when you need it.
