If you are experiencing tooth pain, you should make an appointment to immediately come in and see our dentist at our dental practice, Michael B. Schwarz, DMD. Our top-notch dentist, Dr. Michael B. Schwarz will determine the exact cause for your West New York NJ toothache.
There are many reasons you may be having a toothache. Sometimes a patient has a tooth which has infected or damaged pulp in its interior. If this is the case, your tooth may be able to be saved with a root canal treatment. Our dentist can determine whether or not this is the cause of your West New York NJ toothache. However, not all teeth can be saved with root canal treatments. There are times when a tooth extraction is necessary in order to stop the tooth pain, and make sure that infection clears from your mouth. For example, if a tooth has damaged pulp in its interior, but the damage is assessed as too extensive, our dentist will likely recommend that you instead have a tooth extraction since it is not likely that a root canal procedure will be successful. Root canal procedures are successful in saving 90% of teeth. However, it does not make sense to perform a root canal procedure when you know it will not be effective. In this case, the tooth can be extracted at our dental office. Our patient will remain perfectly comfortable due to our use of local anesthesia. Another time a tooth may need to be extracted if it is damaged and cracked beneath the gum line. When this occurs, it is not likely that it can be saved by any type of dental procedure. Wisdom teeth are also a common cause of tooth pain. If our dentist determines that your wisdom tooth needs to be extracted, this can likely be done at our dental office, as well.
