Toothaches can result from various causes, but there are only two aspects that should be important when you notice one: seeking attention for it as quickly as possible, and getting relief. At the office of Stacey P. Blau DDS, we handle emergencies with the sense of urgency they require, so you can depend on us when you have tooth pain.
Cavities are typical of the reasons for a toothache. They are due to the erosion of your tooth enamel from plaque and tartar. If the cavity becomes large enough, the nerve and pulp inside are exposed, and that is why you have pain, which may become more severe in the event that you sustain an infection. The fillings from cavities that were previously treated can come loose or fall out, which is essentially the same problem as a new cavity. Our dentist in Tuckahoe puts in a new filling and the tooth will be restored. Similarly, when one of your teeth become chipped or cracked, the nerve and pulp are prone. Instead of a filling, our dentist in Tuckahoe will need to create a crown for the tooth. It is made at the dental lab from impressions taken here. You will be fitted with a temporary crown in the interim, though. It is crucial to keep the tooth protected. The biggest danger is that your tooth’s pulp will succumb to a bacterial infection. That is why prompt care is so important when you have a toothache. Infections are remedies with root canal therapy. If you need it done, it will be performed with the utmost of gentle care and precision.
At the very first indication of a toothache, take immediate action. Contact our office and we will make certain that you are seen by our dentist in Tuckahoe in a timely manner for safe, effective treatment.
