If you are experiencing oral pain you should visit us at Finney Family Dental. If you have a toothache Towson Maryland
, our top-notch dentist, Dr. James P. Finney, can provide you with emergency dental treatment.
Sometimes you may have a toothache Towson Maryland because you have a tooth which has infected or damaged pulp in its interior. If this is the case, you will need to have a root canal procedure in order to save the tooth. Our dentist will determine the exact cause of your tooth pain and let you know what type of treatment is needed. If a root canal treatment is needed, the good news is that you can have this treatment performed while you remain perfectly comfortable in our dentist’s chair. Root canal treatments are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. A toothache can also be caused by a dental problem such as a cavity, a cracked tooth, and exposed tooth root, or even gum disease. TMJ can also cause toothaches. Oftentimes, a wisdom tooth will have trouble erupting because there is no room in the patient’s mouth for it to erupt into. This can cause many different types of wisdom teeth problems including: teeth which are infected; teeth which are moving other permanent teeth out of position; and teeth that are impacted. In these cases, our dentist will most likely recommend that the tooth be extracted. Our dentist will be able to extract your tooth while you remain perfectly comfortable in our dentist’s chair due to our use of modern dental anesthesia. If a tooth cannot be saved by a root canal procedure, it will also need to be extracted in order to keep the infection from traveling to other parts of your mouth or even to other parts of your body. Today, most patients are able to have their teeth extracted with little or no discomfort, and experience only minor bleeding.
