Have you ever noticed how often a toothache hits you at the worst times? It never seems to occur just as you’re driving past your dentist’s office. And because your dentist is probably not open during the same hours we are, it won’t do you much good even if you were there and it was on, for example, a Sunday afternoon or a Tuesday evening. Here at Urgent Care Dental, you can trust in us for the expert diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of your toothache when you need it, not just when we can squeeze you in.
There is just no reason that you should suffer with a toothache for any longer than absolutely necessary. But even if you think you can manage the pain, there are practical matters as to why our emergency dental care in Kingsbridge is so important. Toothaches are typically due to one of a few common reasons: a cavity, a loose or lost filling, or a chipped or cracked tooth. And waiting to have your toothache addressed gives time for bacteria to get inside your tooth and cause you an infection. What we’re saying is that prompt attention from our emergency dental care in Kingsbridge is likely to mean simpler treatment, faster healing, and a better chance at rescuing the tooth. An extraction should always be a last resort. All you have to do is show up at our office during our regular hours (we’re here 7 days per week). We see our patients on a first come, first served basis. You need no appointment.
It is reassuring to know that your toothache is going to be treated in a timely manner by a skilled and experienced dentist. That’s what our emergency dental care in Kingsbridge is all about. Get relief for your pain. Come see us right away.
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.
