If you think you may be suffering from a dental or endodontic emergency, it’s important that you visit your local dentist today. At Mid-County Endodontic Group P.A., we provide patients with the best in Hohokus immediate dental care and emergency treatment for dental issues such as fractured or dislodged teeth. If cracked teeth are not taken care of, they can cause tooth decay and eventual extraction of teeth and missing teeth.
We pride ourselves on being able to provide patients with an anxiety free, pain free experience while using the most skilled endodontic techniques. Our Hohokus immediate dental care office also provides evaluation and diagnosis of and treatment of fractured and dislodged teeth. Cracked teeth can happen in a number of ways and cause pain while chewing, biting or if the tooth is exposed to different temperatures. The cracked pieces of the tooth can move and can begin to irritate the pulp inside, which is extremely painful. When bite pressure is released, it may cause sharp pain. This back and forth movement can cause the pulp inside to be damaged permanently, leading to infection and possible need for extraction of the tooth.
If the pulp becomes too damaged, we may require an emergency root canal, or emergency endodontic treatment, to save the tooth from extraction. Root canals are designed to clean the inside of the tooth and remove infected pulp, while saving the entire tooth surrounding it. Our Hohokus immediate dental care office specializes in emergency procedures and can clean and seal the tooth while the patient is under local anesthesia. It is not painful and once completed, a crown is placed on top to protect the area. An emergency root canal may be performed if there is an infection, or abscess, under the tooth’s root or along the gum.
