If you have a toothache Bergen County NJ, you can depend on us at Mid-County Endodontic Group P.A. There are various reasons for the pain in your tooth, and we can address the most serious ones while keeping you comfortable and reducing or eliminating any anxiety you have.
The two most simple common causes of toothache, and ones that usually don’t result in severe pain, are a cavity of the loss of a filing. But you may end up with a toothache in Bergen County NJ that is due to one of two more concerning reasons (or both). When your tooth becomes chipped or cracked, which can occur when you chew something that is too hard or even from your tooth having become weakened from decay, your tooth’s nerve often gets exposed. This makes it very sensitive and can cause a toothache Bergen County NJ. But because the protective layers of your tooth have been stripped away where the chip or crack is, you are also more prone to a bacterial infection that can get inside where the pulp is. Such an infection can often lead to excruciating pain, especially when you attempt to chew with the tooth or you apply pressure to it. If a chipped or cracked tooth is caught before an infection occurs, the solution will be the creation of a crown to protect the tooth. But for an infection, regardless if the cause is a chip or crack, root canal therapy must be performed. The good news, though, is that today’s state-of-the-art root canals are virtually pain-free, so you won’t have to fear it. And the end result is that you keep your tooth instead of having it removed.
