Dentist in Albany NY
When you have a toothache, it is important that you come in to see our dentist at Barats Family Dentistry, not only so you will feel better soon, but so that the tooth has a greater chance of being saved. Our dentist in Albany NY
, Dr. Svetlana Barats, will assess the exact cause of your tooth pain, and provide you with the necessary treatment.
If you have a tooth that has become painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, or when pressure is placed upon it, you most likely have a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp in the center. If this is the case, the only way the tooth can get better is by having a root canal procedure. When a root canal procedure is needed but is not performed, the tooth will only continue to worsen until it eventually falls out. The good news is that our patients are able to have a root canal procedure at our office will they remain perfectly comfortable. This is due to our use of state-of-the-art dental equipment and procedures, and our use of modern dental anesthesia. If you have a wisdom tooth that is infected or impacted, this will cause a toothache, as well. Wisdom teeth more often than not encounter problems when trying to erupt, because there often is not enough space in the mouth for this to occur. Crowding occurs because wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth. Since wisdom teeth are not needed for chewing or for clear speech, it is usually recommended that they are simply extracted if they are causing pain or other problems in your mouth. Other causes of a toothache can be a dental cavity, or a tooth that is cracked. Diagnosing a cracked tooth can be difficult because the pain is usually intermittent. However, a cracked tooth can lead to damaged pulp, so it is important that a cracked tooth is always attended to by our dentist in Albany NY.
