Toothaches and mouth injuries can happen at any time. Whether you have a painful toothache, swelling, a cracked tooth, a lost crown or filling, or another dental problem, our dentists at Family Dental Group are ready to help.

If you have a dental emergency, call our office that is nearest you during regular business hours and will do our best to have you come in that same day. Our goal is to diagnose the problem, eliminate the pain, and determine if further treatment is needed to ensure the problem doesn’t happen again.

What are Common Reasons for Toothaches?

It’s a common question: Why does my tooth hurt? There are a number of reasons why you may have a severe or persistent toothache. Some of the most common reasons for toothaches include:

  • Dental decay (cavities)
  • Abscessed tooth
  • Crown came off
  • Loose filling
  • Cracked tooth
  • Broken tooth
  • Tooth knocked loose
  • Tooth knocked out
  • Enamel worn thin by teeth grinding
  • Sinus pressure

When you come in for an emergency dental appointment at Family Dental Group, the dentist will examine the problem area and take any x-rays needed to diagnose the problem. Then our team will discuss the problem with you and formulate a treatment plan that will eliminate the pain and restore your smile.

What Types of Emergency Dental Treatment Are Available?

The type of treatment you require depends on the cause of the problem.

The most common dental emergency is pain brought on deep cavities. If dental decay is caught early, it can usually be treated with a filling. If it is left untreated, the decay spreads from the enamel to the pulp of the tooth, which contains the tooth’s nerves and blood vessels. The nerves become irritated, infected and inflamed, which can be extremely painful.

Root canal treatment removes the infected pulp from the tooth, which eliminates the pain and save the natural tooth. Either a general dentist or a root canal specialist called an endodontist will perform the root canal treatment. Then the dentist will cap the tooth with a crown to prevent food particles and bacteria from entering the tooth.

While many people joke they’re rather do anything than get a root canal, the root canal procedure is actually very comfortable. Most people say it feels about the same as getting a filling. Best of all, you’ll go home from the root canal pain-free.

In some cases, the tooth can’t be saved after a dental emergency. If you had a tooth knocked out, cracked beyond repair, or too deeply damaged by cavities, then the best option may be for the emergency dentist to remove the tooth.

Tooth extractions eliminate toothaches, but obviously you’re left with a hole where the tooth had been. If that space is not replaced with an artificial tooth, then the surrounding teeth can drift out of position. That can impact how you speak and how you chew. It can also impact your self-confidence, especially if the gap is visible to others. Our dentist will discuss the best option for replacing the missing tooth with you.
