Dental emergencies can cause panic and disruption of your daily routine. Nobody likes to have a toothache or other disorder that causes oral pain or discomfort. The Dental Center in Columbus, Ohio is here to offer you urgent care procedures that will have you feeling better as soon as possible. We offer extended business hours to accommodate your emergency needs and are centrally located for quick and convenient access. We understand how dental emergencies can disrupt your communication and eating abilities and we want to make sure that your treatment is as quick and painless as possible. The Dental Center offers dental urgent care procedures that will have you feeling better in no time. Our most common emergency dental procedures are root canals and tooth extractions.
A root canal, also known as endodontic treatment, occurs when the “root” of the tooth, or the pulp, is removed. Each of your teeth is usually filled with dental pulp, a collection of blood vessels and nerves inside the tooth. When this pulp becomes infected, it can cause intense pain (commonly known as a toothache) that requires immediate treatment. The infected pulp is known as pulpitis, which is usually caused by tooth decay. A root canal is a common procedure that relieves tooth pain by removing the damaged pulp, filling the tooth, and sealing it off so you can return to normal daily functions.
Another common procedure is known as tooth extraction and occurs when a tooth is removed from the socket of your mouth because of decay or damage. Sometimes a tooth is removed to accommodate orthodontic procedures. Tooth extraction is considered an urgent procedure because a damaged tooth causes pain and can affect the alignment of the remaining teeth.
If you are in need of a dental urgent care procedure such as a root canal or tooth extraction, then contact The Dental Center at Easton Town Center. Don’t live in pain any longer!

Urgent care from a dentist at The Dental Center at Easton Town Center(Columbus, Ohio) covers any situation involving your oral health that requires immediate emergency attention. If you experience any pain or discomfort associated with your teeth, gums, or any other area in or around the mouth, then you should seek urgent care right away! Your oral health affects every aspect of your daily life including communication and eating. Any situation that causes you pain or affects the regular functioning of your mouth should be treated immediately so as not to cause permanent damage.
A situation that requires emergency or urgent care is one that involves acute pain. Most often, tooth pain, or a “toothache”, is an inflammation of the dental pulp tissue caused by an infection. The infection is frequently from dental caries (tooth decay) or a cavity and can be treated with a filling, root canal, or tooth extraction.
Other pain-causing situations involve accidents. Maybe your child was just hit in the mouth with a ball during a sports event, or you got in a fender bender on the way home from work and injured part of your mouth. Accidents such as these can have an effect on your dental health and should be treated as soon as possible.
Many people have oral devices such as a crown or bridge in place. If these devices are damaged or lost, they can have a detrimental effect on your oral health. Sometimes issues with these devices do not cause pain, but it is still urgent that they get fixed so that your overall dental health is not affected.
Whether you’re having dental pain, had an accident, or are missing a dental device, you shouldn’t have to wait for treatment.
