Should you ever experience a toothache, we hope you will contact us immediately at Eastgate Dental Excellence. Our Cincinnati emergency dentist will be able to assess the exact cause of your toothache, and provide you with emergency dental care.
When you come to our dental practice with a toothache, you will be seen by one of our expert dentists, just one of whom is Dr. Daniel Kelley. There are many different reasons why a patient can have a toothache. One of the most common causes of a toothache is a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp in its center. If this is the case with your tooth, you will need to have a root canal treatment at our office to save the tooth. The good news is that root canal treatments are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. In addition, patients are now able to comfortably have root canal treatments at our office due to our use of state-of-the-art dental equipment, modern dental techniques, and dental anesthesia. During the root canal treatment, our Cincinnati emergency dentist will remove all infected or damaged pulp from the tooth, and the tooth and root canal systems will be thoroughly cleaned and sealed to prevent reinfection. Another common cause for a toothache is an infected or impacted wisdom tooth. Wisdom teeth frequently encounter different problems when trying to erupt because they are the last teeth in the mouth to come in; this means that often there is no room left in the patient’s mouth for the wisdom teeth. Since wisdom teeth are not needed for proper chewing or for clear speech, it is usually recommended that they are extracted at our office when they cause any type of dental problem.
