We hope you never do, but should you have a toothache we urge you to contact us at Contemporary Dental Associates. If a patient has a Moriches toothache, we know it is a situation that demands immediate attention and we will do our very best to schedule an immediate appointment with one of our expert dentists, either Dr. Dean Delle Donne or Dr. Anthony DeLio.
If you have a tooth that is painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, or when pressure is placed upon it, you probably have a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp in its center. If this is the case, you will need to have a root canal treatment at our office in order to save the tooth. When a tooth has damaged or infected pulp, the only way it can be saved is with a root canal treatment; if this treatment is not provided the condition of the tooth will worsen until it eventually falls out on its own. This is never a good way to proceed since infection will remain in the tooth and can spread to other parts of your mouth or body, and tooth pain will continue. The good news is that root canal treatments are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. And with our state-of-the-art equipment, and our dentist’s use of modern dental techniques and dental anesthesia, our patients are able to remain perfectly comfortable while they receive the root canal treatment. During the root canal therapy, all damaged or infected pulp will be removed from the tooth. The tooth and root canal system will then be thoroughly cleaned and sealed to prevent reinfection. The sooner a root canal procedure is performed, the more likely it is to be effective. For this reason, we urge you to call us for a visit at the earliest sign of a Moriches toothache.
