When somebody says they're in pain, you have to try to find out where the pain is. The first thing you need to do is make a diagnosis, and you need to take an X-ray. We find out then, depending on the condition of the tooth or teeth, we could try to make a decision in conjunction with the patient what they want to do. If you have pain, usually the nerve is involved. Once you have the nerve involved, you're basically looking at either a root canal or extracting, pulling a tooth, if it can't be saved. Your teeth don't grow back. When you lose a tooth, you have to think about replacing that at some point because it's going to cause other problems down the road like shifting teeth and gum problems.
When you have pain, the best thing usually to do is to have a root canal. That removes the nerve of the tooth and that way, we can restore it with a crown and then you don't end up losing that tooth, and we can restore to where it was before as a full tooth.

Get Dental Decay Treated ASAP
Although there are many causes of dental pain, a common one is tooth decay. When decay eats away your tooth enamel, it creates a cavity that leads to sensitivity and pain. If left untreated, it can get inside the soft center of your tooth and become infected.
Dr. Hugh Rosenblatt uses a tool called DIAGNOdent during dental exams to find cavities in their earliest stages when they can be treated with a simple filling. He can repair cavities that are too severe for a filling with an inlay, an onlay, or a dental crown. If the infection gets inside your tooth, he can save your tooth with a root canal.
If a tooth is too damaged to be saved, Dr. Rosenblatt can gently extract it. You may opt to get a dental implant as a long-lasting replacement for your missing tooth. The implant will support a perfectly crafted crown to fill the gap and restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile like normal!
If you need urgent dental care for a cavity or anything else, call (561) 737-8559.
