If you have a tooth that is painful, you will want to visit our endodontist practice, Apex Endodontics. When you have a toothache in Bardonia, our top-notch endodontist can assess the exact cause of your tooth pain, and provide you with appropriate treatment.
There can be many different causes for having a toothache in Bardonia. If you have a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp in its interior, this can cause tooth pain, especially when you eat something hot or cold. If this is the case, you will need to have a root canal procedure. During the root canal procedure all infected and damaged pulp will be removed from the interior of your tooth. Then the entire tooth and root canal system will be thoroughly cleaned and sealed to prevent any reinfection. Our endodontist, Dr. Ro, is highly skilled in providing patients with effective root canal treatments. Root canal treatments are able to save teeth in over 90% of cases. Our endodontist is also specially trained in finding the cause of tooth and facial pain, even in hard-to-diagnose cases. Sometimes a tooth has tooth decay which is causing pain. Often times, when a patient has tooth pain when they eat something sweet, it is the sign that you have a cavity. If a cavity is allowed to progress so that decay reaches the center of the tooth, you will end up needing to have a root canal. So it is always important that tooth decay is treated as early as possible. Other causes of tooth decay can include an abscessed tooth, a cracked or damaged filling, teeth grinding, or infected gums. An abscessed tooth is an infection which can be quite painful. It occurs when there is infection at the root of the tooth or between the gum and a tooth. It is generally caused by untreated tooth decay. A tooth abscess can also be caused by gingivitis or gum disease.
