When you have a toothache, that’s all you can think about. It makes it challenging to handle your everyday tasks.
If the tooth starts hurting after business hours or on the weekend, you may resign yourself to waiting until a traditional dental practice opens.
When others are closed, Dr. Bill Dorfman, DDS – Century City Aesthetic Dentistry is here for you. We treat walk-in dental emergencies. That means you don’t need to make an appointment.
We will identify the cause of the tooth pain and take care of you.
Is A Toothache A Dental Emergency?
Yes. Here’s why. Tooth pain may be a symptom of a serious malady. We are equipped to treat many causes of tooth pain. Your tooth pain may be caused by one of the following:
Eventually, decay can reach the tooth nerve. Ouch! The earlier the issue is addressed, the better your chances of saving the tooth.
Gum disease (or the more serious periodontitis) may cause pain. It should be treated immediately before teeth loosen. At that point, you risk losing them.
Damaged Tooth Pulp
When the inner nerves down in the root of the tooth become infected, an emergency root canal can allow you to save the tooth. Plus it ends the pain!
Maybe It’s Not Your Tooth
Everything’s connected, right? Problems with surrounding systems can cause tooth pain along with a host of other symptoms. Your tooth pain may be caused by an ear or sinus infection.
Whether it’s a disorder with your tooth, or something else, let’s get it taken care of.
