Toothaches, whatever their cause, can consume your attention until the pain is relieved. Here at the office of Dr. Donald Salomon and Dr. Joseph Esposito, you can take advantage of our urgent dental care in Hartsdale when you have a toothache. Don’t try to wait it out. They’re highly unlikely to spontaneously go away, and they can easily become worse when not tended to promptly.
Not all toothaches originate within the tooth itself. Gum disease or a jaw problem such as TMJ disorder can be responsible. For the most part, though, damage to your tooth’s protective barrier is the cause. When the nerve is exposed, you are susceptible to pain. Tooth decay is one source. It forms a hole in the tooth, or what is best known as a cavity. Another is a chip or a crack in the tooth. Our urgent dental care in Hartsdale recommends that you get here in a timely manner. The longer that your inner tooth is left unprotected, the greater the chance is of sustaining a bacterial infection. And while a cavity can be addressed simply with a filling, and a chip or crack needs only a crown to deal with the situation, an infection can only be treated properly with root canal. Advancements in technology have led to circumstances where this procedure is nothing to feel anxiety about. The majority of patients say that they felt very little or no pain at all. The infected tissue and nerve are removed and the canals are cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. A crown is added after the tooth has healed.
Our urgent dental care in Hartsdale is focused on pain relief and assuring that you are able to keep your tooth. In order to make this a reality, you need to put a priority on prompt care. Just call our office and we will have you seen as quickly as we can.
