Tooth Pain Q & A

What causes tooth pain?

There are a number of possible reasons for tooth pain, with some of the most common including:

  • Pulp (inner tooth tissue) infection
  • Periodontal disease (gum disease)
  • Dental trauma
  • Tooth misalignment due to crowding
  • Broken teeth
  • Wisdom tooth eruption
  • Bruxism (chronic tooth grinding)

Tooth pain can also be directly related to other health problems. For example, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders affect the joint that hinges your jaw. Often, this can cause symptoms like jaw pain, which may mimic tooth pain at times.

What is the best treatment for tooth pain?

Tooth pain treatment varies based on the specific cause and your needs. Emergency Dentist NYC offers all types of emergency treatment for tooth pain, including:

Root canal treatment

Root canal treatment extracts the diseased or damaged inner part of your tooth to relieve your tooth pain. After root canal treatment, a custom crown restoration caps your tooth to reinforce it and allow you to function without pain.

Tooth extractions

Keeping your tooth is the best option, but that’s just not possible sometimes. If your tooth is severely decayed or damaged, tooth extraction followed by a restoration like a dental implant with a crown is often ideal. Tooth extraction is often the best solution when your wisdom teeth are growing in and causing problems for your other teeth, or when your wisdom teeth are in a bad position directly beneath your molars. 


Emergency Dentist NYC offers all types of restorations for broken teeth, cracked teeth, and other common causes of tooth pain. Often, you can preserve a damaged tooth with a custom crown, which fully restores function and appearance. If you need a tooth extraction, Emergency Dentist NYC also offers dental bridges and dental implants to replace your tooth with a realistic new tooth. 

Regardless of the cause of your tooth pain, Emergency Dentist NYC has immediate solutions on-site.
