Toothache can strike at any time and is reputed to be one of the worst kinds of pain imaginable. It may be caused by any number of conditions, such as decay reaching the pulp cavity or nerve of the tooth, an impacted wisdom tooth and/or the gum around it which has become infected, or the exposure of the dentine layer of a tooth because of a traumatic injury where a tooth may be broken or chipped.

Dental emergencies come in many forms. For instance, if your child’s tooth is knocked out at a ball game in Bakersfield, the first thing you should try to do is rinse it off and then try to reinsert the tooth into its socket. Thereafter you will need to call an emergency dentist in Bakersfield, CA, and explain the situation. At Sunshine Family Dentistry we will advise you to come to our surgery immediately so that a dentist can examine the patient and perform any treatment necessary. It you are unable to reinsert the tooth in its correct place, place the tooth in some milk and bring it to the surgery with your child. In most cases of this nature the emergency dentist will be able to replace the tooth in its socket and where it will re-establish itself and continue to grow.

Should you suddenly start having a throbbing pain from one of your teeth, it would mean that the nerve is involved, most probably because of decay under an old filling. The throbbing pain starts when the nerve expands because of an infection and, because there is a filling blocking the top of the tooth, there is nowhere for the infection to go except to travel down the root canal and form an abscess at the tip of the root. No amount of painkilling medication will help in this situation and, if you are in the Bakersfield area, you will need to find an emergency dentist in Bakersfield, CA, to open up the tooth, remove the infection and insert a nerve sedative as an emergency measure.  

It is inadvisable to leave any form of toothache untreated. At Sunshine Family Dentistry not only do we have the most advanced equipment and fully trained staff needed to handle any emergency, but we will give you an appointment immediately in order to relieve your pain. Even if you are a visitor to the City of Bakersfield and need an emergency dentist in Bakersfield, CA, we will be happy to attend to you. We also specialize in wisdom teeth removal in Bakersfield.
