When you have a toothache, you can count on us at Brunswick Family Dental and Implant Center for the attentive care you need to get relief. With prompt diagnosis and treatment, you’ll have the best chance of keeping your tooth strong and healthy.
The common causes of a Sayreville toothache are cavities, lost (and loose) fillings, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, and infections of the inner tooth. From your standpoint, the priority is that you have pain and you want it to go away. You’ll be examined and x-rays will be taken, which offer an accurate detail of what the problem is. Cavities and problem fillings will be addressed with a new filling. And in the case of a chipped or cracked tooth, our dentist takes impressions for the fashioning of a crown. You’ll be fitted with a temporary one in the meantime as the dental lab uses the impression to make the permanent one to precision. Whether you have a cavity, loose or lost filling, or chipped or cracked tooth, however, the risk exists that bacteria will get inside due to the breach of the protective barriers that keep your tooth safe under normal circumstances. If that does occur, your Sayreville toothache may be even more severe, and the treatment required is root canal therapy. Don’t be nervous about it, though, because with today’s techniques and equipment, it’s a much more comfortable procedure. And it’s a lot better than having to extract the tooth. For one thing, it’s always better to have your natural tooth than to replace it with an artificial one later.
We urge you to reach out to our office without delay when you have a Sayreville toothache. We’ll ensure that you are seen in a timely manner, which is the key to the success of any treatment performed.
