Tooth pain can be some of the most unbearable! When your tooth is throbbing and keeping you up at night or not allowing you to think straight, you need relief fast. Not only do you need relief, but you also need to treat that tooth as soon as possible, as a throbbing tooth can mean a damaged or infected tooth.

The good news is that your emergency dentist in Middletown, Dr. Pradeep Sukumar, has solutions for throbbing teeth that will get you feeling better and right back on the path to wellness. Here's what you should know about emergency services at Middletown Dental.

We Make Every Effort to Get You Relief Fast

At Middletown Dental, we offer morning, evening, and Saturday appointments, so we see most emergency patients the same day. Dr. Sukumar will perform a same-day treatment if possible, and if not, we'll ensure that you're comfortable until we can repair your tooth.

We encourage you to contact our dental office first before heading to a hospital emergency room since we are better equipped to handle tooth emergencies. We're happy to assess your situation over the phone and help you determine your best course of action.

How You Can Avoid Tooth Pain and Infections

Believe it or not, many tooth infections can be avoided with consistent teeth cleanings and checkups with your Middletown dentist. At every examination, we screen you for many dental concerns like gum disease and tooth decay that can cause dental pain and infections. 

As an example, if Dr. Sukumar finds tooth decay in its early stages, he can often restore your tooth with a dental filling that is less costly than more complicated treatment procedures like root canal therapy. If tooth decay goes untreated or undetected, it will get worse, cause further damage, and result in a painful, throbbing tooth. Now you need root canal treatment to alleviate your pain and your infection.
