We hope you never do, but should you ever have a toothache we hope you will come in to see us at The Tabas Center for Advanced Dentistry. There can be different reasons why you may have a 19145 toothache, but our expert dentist, Dr. Norman Tabas, will be able to determine the cause of your problem and treat it successfully.
It is very common for people to have a toothache when they have a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp in its center. This type of tooth problem can be caused by tooth trauma, or by a tooth that has had decay enter the tooth either by a cavity, or through a crack in the tooth or filling. When a tooth has this type of damage, our dentist will need to perform a root canal procedure in order to save the tooth. Thankfully, root canal procedures are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. If our dentist determines that the tooth will not be receptive to root canal treatment, or that it has already become too damaged, our dentist may let you know that the tooth needs to be extracted. At our practice, we can perform simple extractions while our patients remain comfortable due to our use of local anesthesia. Sometimes wisdom teeth become infected and need to be extracted, as well. Wisdom teeth develop many different problems when trying to erupt. This is because wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the mouth to come in, and there often is no room left for this to occur. Wisdom teeth can become infected, impacted, or even end up pushing other permanent teeth out of their proper positions. Since wisdom teeth are not needed for chewing or for speaking clearly, it is generally recommended that wisdom teeth are extracted when they are causing a 19145 toothache.
