Avoid Long-Term Damage to Your Smile With Emergency Dental Care

When a dental emergency strikes, time is of the essence. That’s why we’ll see you as quickly as possible, often on the same day you call. The moment you arrive, your dentist will perform an exam to identify the root cause of the problem. Our team will take any necessary X-rays to get a clear picture of what’s happening in your smile.

Your dentist may recommend:

  • Tooth Fillings –  If you have a cavity or small fracture, a tooth-colored filling can restore your tooth. Your dentist will use composite fillings. Unlike metal, they blend in with your smile.
  • Root Canals – A severe toothache is often a sign of an infection in your tooth. A root canal can save your tooth and help you avoid an extraction. Your dentist will remove the diseased inside portion and get you out of pain fast.
  • Dental Crowns If your tooth is severely cracked, chipped, or worn down, a custom dental crown can restore your smile. Your restoration will look natural near your other teeth. You’ll regain full oral function again.
  • Tooth ExtractionsIf your tooth is too badly damaged or infected, your dentist may suggest an extraction. They will remove the problem tooth and prepare your mouth for a future replacement tooth.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – Infected gum tissue can often cause discomfort. Your dentist will thoroughly clean the area in and around your gumline with a procedure known as scaling and root planing. You may need to return for follow-up care.
  • Dental Bridges – If you’ve lost one or more teeth due to an accident or extraction, a dental bridge can give you a complete smile. This restoration can be anchored to nearby teeth or to dental implants.

If you’re feeling anxious or apprehensive about your emergency procedure, let us know. We offer sedation to help you feel calm and relaxed throughout your care.
