Is a toothache a dental emergency?

Patients near Springfield, IL often have a hard time deciding whether or not they qualify for emergency dental treatment. And the answer is, it really can be difficult to tell unless we see you in person or at least discuss the issue you are having over the phone.

If you have an issue like a toothache, we always try to see you as soon as possible. Not only because your tooth likely needs treatment, but also because we never want our patients to be in pain. We want to find a solution to your pain as soon as we can.

Common Toothache Causes

While there are a variety of reasons why a tooth may hurt, there are a few common causes that we see most often.

Patients with tooth pain may have:

  • A cavity that needs treatment
  • An infected tooth
  • A broken or cracked tooth

If our Springfield dentist discovers one of the above issues as a cause of your tooth pain, we will work with you to treat the issue promptly.

Before embarking on any treatment plan, we will thoroughly discuss your dental problem with you, explain how the treatment will fix the problem, and ensure that you feel comfortable with the process.

Tooth pain treatments may include dental fillings or root canal treatment, among other procedures.
