Common causes of toothaches in 11746

When that familiar, and unwelcome, pain announces itself, you need prompt care. We at Dental Arts of Wyandanch and Huntington Station are here for you. Expect expert diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment for your 11746 toothache.

The most common causes of toothaches are cavities, loose fillings, lost fillings, chipped or cracked teeth, and tooth infections. You may not be able to distinguish among them, but our dentist most certainly can. Zeroing in on the exact nature of your 11746 toothache is essential because the proper way to address it requires knowing the source. With a cavity or a filling that has either come loose or has fallen out, all that is usually needed is to place a new filling. This is among the simplest forms of dental care, and is completed in a single session. The reason that you are suffering pain is that the hole in your tooth has left the nerve inside exposed. The same is true when you have a chipped or cracked tooth, although the remedy is different. A dental crown is required to cover it. The process takes two trips to our office. The first is to take impressions of the tooth so that the dental lab can fashion a precisely fitted crown (you’ll be given a temporary one in the meantime). The second visit is when your new crown is cemented to your tooth. An infection tends to lead to a particularly severe 11746 toothache. Root canal therapy is the way to deal with it. This non-surgical treatment has a 90% success rate, and it’s the best, and usually only, way to retain the tooth’s health and viability so it will not need to be extracted.
