When a patient comes in to see our Coney Island emergency dentist due to the fact that they have a toothache, our dentist will thoroughly assess the situation and determine the exact cause of the tooth pain. Our emergency dentist is always happy to have emergency dental patients worked into his daily schedule because he understands a patients sometimes needs to see a dentist on an emergency basis. When you come to our dental practice with a painful tooth, our dentist will take the necessary steps to determine the exact cause of the tooth pain. If it is determined that a tooth has damaged or infected pulp in its interior, your tooth will need to have an emergency root canal. This is the only way a tooth in this condition can be saved. Additionally, the sooner a root canal treatment is performed, the greater the likelihood that the tooth will be saved. Root canal treatments are able to save teeth in over 90% of cases. Our dentist will let you know whether or not it is likely that your tooth can be saved by a root canal treatment. During a root canal treatment, the damaged or infected pulp will be removed from the center of the tooth. Then the tooth and root canal system will be thoroughly cleaned and sealed to prevent reinfection. This procedure is performed while our patient remains completely comfortable due to the use of local anesthesia. If the tooth cannot be saved with root canal, our dentist may need to perform a tooth extraction. Our dentist performs tooth extractions using local anesthesia as well.
For an appointment to meet with our Coney Island emergency dentist for tooth pain, or other dental emergency, do not hesitate to contact us for emergency dental care.
