The most common dental emergency is a toothache. And when it’s you suffering with it, there is nothing more important to you. Fortunately, we at the office of Sammy Goldstein DDS and Jacob Cohen DDS are available for urgent care when you experience tooth pain.
The type of treatment for a toothache will be based on the reason that it has occurred in the first place. Sometimes, it is surprising to discover the that pain has not originated in the tooth itself, but in the gums or jaws, due to other conditions. However, in the overwhelming number of cases, our dentist in Weehawken will determine that your toothache is from a cavity, loose or lost filling, chipped or cracked tooth, or a bacterial infection inside the tooth. Of all of the above, a cavity or problem filling are the easiest and quickest to handle. It’s a simple matter of putting in a new filling, which is accomplished right on the spot. Chips or cracks require the making of a crown. Our dentist in Weehawken takes the impressions that are used by our dental lab to fashion it. A temporary one is fitted to your tooth until the permanent one is ready. Infections take hold when one of the other instances has allowed bacteria to get inside the tooth. It’s why you should not hesitate to have a toothache looked at in a timely manner. If you do need treatment for an infection, the solution is root canal therapy, performed here with the benefit of advanced equipment and techniques. You can be assured of a comfortable experience. And the procedure is successful 90% or more of the time.
Be sure to reach out to our office immediately when you have tooth pain. Our dentist in Weehawken will see you as quickly as possible.
