If you have a Rego Park toothache, the only thing that matters to you is getting prompt treatment for it, which is what we at PresiDental Care provide. However, the more you know about the common causes of toothaches and their implications, the better your chances are of having a positive outcome.
The four typical reasons for a Rego Park toothache are cavities, loose or lost fillings, chipped or cracked teeth, and infections of the inner tooth. For either a newly formed cavity, or one for which a filling has come loose or fallen out, our dentist will only need to put in a new filling. Chipped or cracked teeth require the placement of a dental crown over the tooth. The reason behind both fillings and crowns in such circumstances is that your tooth’s natural protective barriers, the enamel and dentin layers, have become compromised. The nerve inside is exposed, and that’s why you have a Rego Park toothache. There is, though, a more alarming complication, which is that the opening in the tooth may allow bacteria to get inside and infect the delicate pulp, which is located right next to the nerve. And while you cannot prevent that from happening, you can make it less likely by seeking out treatment in a timely manner. Don’t ignore a toothache or just hope that it goes away. In the event that an infection has been sustained, the proper treatment option is root canal therapy, which is a non-surgical procedure that involves the removal of the injured pulp and nerve. The worst case for any toothache is the loss of the tooth, an outcome that we make every effort to help you avoid.
