Philadelphia area patients experiencing pain in a tooth should seek dental care

Tooth Pain Philadelphia

Everyone dreads a toothache. The pain may be a simple soreness in a specific area of the mouth, or it can be an extremely painful experience from a specific tooth. When patients are experiencing tooth pain, it can interfere with their quality of life. Sometimes, pain can become so intolerable that patients are unable to sleep at night. When patients are faced with a toothache, it is important to have a dental professional in the Philadelphia area ready and willing to help with emergency dental care.

A toothache may indicate one of several issues. Sometimes tooth pain develops due to a very large cavity. This cavity may make it painful to eat or drink, especially items that are hot or cold due to sensitivity. Another reason may be infected dental pulp. The dental pulp is housed inside of the tooth and includes the tissues, nerves, and blood supply. When infected, patients experience extreme pain. The primary method of treatment in this situation is endodontic therapy, also known as a root canal. It can eliminate the pain while keeping the natural tooth and avoiding extractions. A toothache can be addressed with a visit to the dentist. Dr. David Spilkia and his team offer emergency dental services and can help patients even outside of traditional business hours.

Dr. David Spilkia offers more than just emergency dental services for tooth pain. Other treatments may address:

  • Dental accidents
  • Extractions
  • Broken, fractured teeth
  • Trauma to a natural tooth
  • Abscesses
  • Root canals
  • Lost restorations such as bridges, crowns, and veneers
  • Damaged dentures

I’ve been going here for years and I’ve never had a problem. He also did my anterior crown and I’m in hygiene school and many of my peers can’t even tell it’s a crown. Dr. Spilkia is a wonderful dentist and I would not go anywhere else!
