Do you have a tooth that is painful when you eat something that is hot or cold? If so, you will want to make an appointment to come to see us at Amesbury Family Dental. Our Merrimac emergency dentist, Dr. Sanford Greenberg, will help you with your emergency dental needs, including toothaches.
When you have a toothache, it is most likely a sign that you have a dental problem which needs to be addressed. If you have a tooth that is painful when pressure is placed upon it, or when you eat something that is hot or cold, you may have a tooth that needs to have a root canal treatment. The tooth needs to have a root canal treatment when it has pulp in its interior that is either infected or damaged. If the tooth has this condition, and it does not receive root canal treatment, the tooth will eventually fall out on its own, and need to be replaced by a dental implant or dental bridge. Happily, root canal procedures are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. However, the sooner a root canal procedure is performed, the more likely it is that the treatment will be successful. For this reason, we urge you to contact us for an appointment at the earliest sign of tooth pain. Our emergency dentist will be able to assess the exact cause of your toothache and provide the appropriate treatment for it. Sometimes a toothache is caused by a wisdom tooth. Since wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the mouth to erupt, there often is not enough room in the mouth for this to happen. This situation causes the wisdom tooth to develop problems when trying to erupt; it may come in sideways, become infected or impacted, or end up pushing other permanent teeth out of position. When wisdom teeth cause problems, it is generally recommended by our Merrimac emergency dentist that the wisdom tooth is extracted to keep infection from developing and spreading.

Our Merrimac emergency dentist is available to address toothaches, which can be caused by anything from a cavity to a tooth infection. Even gum disease and jaw problems can be the reason for tooth pain. Here at Amesbury Family Dental, we are here when you need us the most.
It’s not always easy for you to identify the origin of your toothache, but our Merrimac emergency dentist can. Sometimes, all it takes is a quick physical and visual inspection of the tooth. More often, x-rays will be required. In the case of a cavity or a filling that has fallen out, the solution is simply to put in a new or replacement filling. A cracked or chipped tooth will typically call for a crown to be put on top to protect it, which if there is no damage to the nerve or root area, should be sufficient. Since a crown has to be made at the dental lab, you will be fitted with a temporary one in the meantime. If you do have an infection in the pulp, down near the nerve, ro
ot canal therapy is the answer. Not only will it alleviate your toothache, but it will also save the tooth, which is always the most preferable outcome. If you think that root canal therapy is scary, let us assure you that advancements in technology have made the procedure much more comfortable and nothing to be nervous about. Should the problem be traced back to the gums or jaws, the appropriate treatment will be undertaken. And in some instances, Merrimac emergency dentist may have to resort to extracting the tooth, if it is beyond the point of preservation.
Toothaches need to be taken care of in a timely manner. Don’t hesitate to contact our office when you are experiencing tooth pain of any degree.
