Dental office Towson Maryland
If you ever experience a toothache, it is important that you immediately visit our dental practice, Finney Family Dental. If you have a toothache, a tooth may need immediate root canal treatment, or a wisdom tooth may be infected and needs to be removed. At our dental office Towson Maryland
, our dentist, Dr. James P. Finney, will assess the exact cause of your tooth pain and let you know which treatment is necessary.
Oftentimes, toothaches are caused by wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth can have many different problems when they are trying to erupt. This is due to the fact that wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the mouth to erupt and often there is simply not enough room for them. For this reason, wisdom teeth may end up trying to come in in the wrong place, can come in sideways, can push other permanent teeth out of position, or can become impacted. When wisdom teeth are painful, they are generally extracted in order to prevent other dental problems, and to make sure that you do not have infection in your mouth. When wisdom teeth are extracted they do not need to be replaced at our dental office Towson Maryland. If you have a tooth which is painful when you eat something hot or cold, or if the gum surrounding the tooth is red and painful, you may have a tooth which is infected or damaged in its interior. When this is the case, it is important that your tooth receives a root canal treatment at our dental office Towson Maryland in order for the tooth to be saved. Happily, root canal treatments can save teeth in over 90% of cases. And, the sooner a tooth receives this treatment, the more likely the treatment is to be successful. For this reason, it is important that you come to our dental practice at the earliest signs of tooth pain. Our dentist will let you know the cause of the pain, and provide appropriate treatment.
