Toothaches in Rapid City, SD

A toothache is a pain in or around a tooth that can be constant or sporadic, sharp, or throbbing. Toothaches can originate from simple issues such as food stuck in your gum or more serious dental problems like an abscess or broken tooth. Unfortunately, tooth pains often won’t resolve on their own and will require you to visit a dentist for treatment. If you’re suffering from a persistent toothache, Black Hills Dentures, Implants and Urgent Care in Rapid City, SD, can help. We accept walk-in patients and offer same-day appointments to help you get out of pain as soon as possible.
