Urgent is the word that best describes your need when you have a toothache. And at Dental Pros, we are proud to offer prompt care for emergencies. Pain, no matter at what degree, is something our 90029 dentist does not want you to have to deal with for one minute longer than you have to.
In order to alleviate a toothache, our 90029 dentist must first determine the reason for it so that the appropriate treatment can be implemented. There are typically two reasons why you are experiencing pain. One is that the nerve inside the tooth is exposed. The other is that the pulp, located right next to the nerve, has become infected. Sometimes, both situations exist at the same time. Your tooth has protective layers that keep the nerve and pulp from being affected, but a particularly large cavity, a deep filling, or a tooth that is chipped or cracked leaves the inside of your tooth prone to damage, including by bacteria. The longer the inner tooth is susceptible, the greater the chances of a problem occurring. That is why you should get in to see our 90029 dentist right away when you have a toothache. A cavity can be filled quickly and effectively. Likewise, a filling that has come loose and/or has fallen out will be replaced. When your tooth is chipped or cracked, a crown (cap) is fashioned at the dental lab from impressions taken at our office. That crown covers the tooth so that it is no longer vulnerable to infection or to the nerve being irritated. You are given a temporary crown to keep the tooth protected while your permanent one is being made. And whenever the pulp has been damaged or infected, root canal is the answer.
Depend on our 90029 dentist for the attentive, expert, and gentle care you require. Don’t waste any time reaching out to us when you have a toothache.
