Certain dental emergencies involve injuries to the mouth that cause teeth to be pushed back into their sockets. These are known as dislodged teeth. If the tooth is pushed partially out of the socket, our Nyack root canal dentist may re-position your tooth after stabilizing it. If the pulp remains healthy, no further treatment will be needed but if the pulp becomes infected or damaged, a root canal will be necessary. If this is the case, the root canal treatment is normally started within a few weeks of the injury. Medication may be placed inside the tooth, such as calcium hydroxide, and the canal will eventually be sealed by placing a permanent root canal filling. The tooth should be checked periodically by our Nyack root canal dentist to guarantee proper healing.
Dental Emergencies Nyack
Children between the ages of 7 and 12 years old may not need root canal treatment due to a dislodged tooth since their teeth are still developing. For these types of injuries, our Nyack root canal dentist will monitor the healing carefully with not only clinical exams but X-rays as well. If any abnormal changes appear then our dentist will intervene right away to find out the cause of the changes and how best to treat them. If this becomes the case then multiple follow-up appointments may be needed. According to new research, stem cells in the pulps of our younger patient’s teeth can be stimulated to finish root growth and heal the pulp following infections or injuries.

There are many causes of toothaches. In most cases toothaches are caused by dental problems such as a cavity, a cracked or fractured tooth or even gum disease. However, sometimes diseases of the jaw can cause toothache like symptoms. TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) is a common jaw joint disease that can cause ear pain, jaw pain as well as toothache like symptoms. If you have a toothache, we highly suggest that you make an appointment with our Nyack endodontist at Rockland Endodontics to get a complete dental evaluation. A thorough oral examination and x-rays can help to determine the cause of the toothache. It will help to determine if the toothache is actually coming from the tooth or somewhere else. Once our expert endodondist determines the cause of the problem, he will take the time to discuss everything with you, including treatment options. Dr. Bey takes the time to explain everything to our patients in a way they’ll understand.
