Emergency Dentist in Towson
We hope you never do, but should you have a toothache, we hope you will contact us immediately at Finney Family Dental. Our emergency dentist in Towson
, Dr. James P. Finney, will assess the cause of your tooth pain and provide you with appropriate emergency treatment.
A common cause of a toothache is when you have a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp in its center. This can happen due to an untreated dental cavity, a cracked tooth, or a tooth that suffered trauma in the past. If a tooth has damaged pulp in its interior, our emergency dentist in Towson
will need to perform a root canal treatment in order to save the tooth. Our dentist will determine whether or not the tooth can be saved with a root canal treatment. If this is not possible, he most likely will recommend that the tooth is extracted to stop any dental pain, as well as so that any infection can be treated. If a root canal treatment is recommended, the good news is that patients remain perfectly comfortable at our office during a root canal treatment. This is due to our use of state-of-the-art equipment and technology, as well as our use of modern dental anesthesia. Over 90% of teeth can successfully be saved with a root canal treatment. Another common cause of a toothache is a wisdom tooth that is experiencing some type of problem. Since wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the mouth to erupt, and there is often little or no room for this to occur, wisdom teeth often encounter problems in the mouth. Wisdom teeth are not needed for chewing or to speak clearly. So, when wisdom teeth are causing problems, it is usually recommended that they are simply extracted. When wisdom teeth are extracted, they do not need to be replaced. Wisdom teeth may be infected or impacted, or may even be trying to push properly-placed permanent teeth out of position.
