For the purpose of having your emergency handled in a timely manner, it doesn’t much matter why you have a toothache. What does matter is that you get attention right away. And at dental Arts of Boston, you will be seen as soon as we can get you in.
Cavities are often the reason for a toothache. This could mean that you have a new one, or that a previously treated one has had its filling come loose or has fallen out. It is also possible that your tooth has suffered a chip or a crack. Our emergency dentist in Boston will examine your tooth, probably take x-rays, and then make a determination about the source of the pain and the best way to proceed. You may only need a filling, either to replace a lost one or to restore a tooth that has a brand new cavity. That’s simple and done completely at our office in one visit. A crown, such as is needed for a chipped or cracked tooth will require two visits. Our emergency dentist in Boston will take impressions that are sent to the dental lab. While they are making your permanent crown, you will be fitted with a temporary crown to keep the tooth protected in the meantime. If your tooth has sustained an infection to the pulp inside, the solution is root canal therapy. Don’t leave us now. It’s actually a comfortable procedure done with advanced methods. Most of our patients tell us that there was very little pain or even none at all. You’ll be given local anesthesia to ensure that you are numb during the procedure.
Don’t hesitate when you have a toothache. Even a mild one should be taken care of in a timely manner. Reach out to us immediately and we will have you see our emergency dentist in Boston at the earliest possible opportunity.
