If you are experiencing tooth pain, we hope you will not hesitate to contact us at Danville Family Dentistry. When you come to our dental practice with any type of tooth pain, you will be seen by our Mt. Vernon top dentist, just one of whom is Dr. Aaron Lerg.
Our dentist will definitively determine the cause of your tooth pain problem. Tooth pain can be caused by many different reasons. Sometimes, wisdom teeth are extremely painful. Since wisdom teeth are the last teeth of the mouth to erupt, they often meet with difficulty when trying to emerge; wisdom teeth can come in sideways, or other times they simply may become infected. It is very common for patients to need to have wisdom teeth extracted. When wisdom teeth are removed, they generally are not replaced with any type of dental implant or other tooth replacement method. If necessary, we can perform simple extractions while our patients remain comfortable using local anesthesia. Another common reason for tooth pain is a dental cavity. If this is the case, we will be able to provide you with expert treatment so that your cavity can be treated and filled. If your tooth is painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, or when it is pressed upon, you may have a tooth that has infected or damaged pulp in its interior. If this is the case, you will need to have a root canal procedure to save the tooth. Root canal treatments are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. Our Mt. Vernon top dentist will let you know if a root canal treatment is indicated, and if the procedure will be completed in one or two office visits. During a root canal procedure, our patients remain perfectly comfortable due to modern dental anesthesia. All infected or damaged pulp is removed from the tooth, and the entire tooth and root canal systems are thoroughly cleaned and sealed.
