If you are experiencing a toothache, you should contact us at Morris Plains Center for Dentistry. Our expert Morris Plains emergency dentist, Dr. Sami Solaimanzadeh, will provide you with complete diagnosis and treatment to have your tooth feeling better soon.
There are many reasons why you may need to see our Morris Plains emergency dentist. However, one of most common reasons patients come to see us on an emergency basis is because they have a toothache. A toothache can occur for many different reasons. Commonly, a toothache is caused by a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp in its center. If this is the case, you need to have root canal treatment. When you have a tooth with damaged pulp, the only way that the tooth can be saved is with a root canal treatment. If this treatment is not performed on your tooth, the tooth will never be able to get better on its own. Our dentist will examine your particular dental situation and let you know whether or not the tooth needs to have, and can indeed be saved with root canal treatment. If the tooth cannot be saved with a root canal, our dentists will need to extract the tooth, which will eliminate your dental pain. The good news is that over 90% of teeth can be saved with root canals. Today, you can remain perfectly comfortable in our dentist’s chair while a root canal procedure is performed. During the root canal treatment, all infected or damaged pulp will be removed from the center of the tooth. The tooth and root canal system will then be thoroughly cleaned and filled with a special inert material. Finally, the tooth will be sealed to prevent reinfection. Once the root canal therapy is completed and the tooth has healed, there is no reason why the tooth should not be able to last in your mouth for as long as any other tooth you have.
