Common Dental Emergencies Include
Root Canal Therapy
Decay, cracks, and other dental damage can let bacteria into your soft tissue, causing an infection. Our caring team will perform root canal therapy to clean out any infected tissue inside your tooth and seal out the chance of further infection. It’s crucial that you seek treatment for an infection as soon as possible. Not doing so can result in developing an abscess, losing your tooth, and other damage.
When you have a tooth that’s incurred substantial decay or damage, a dental crown will effectively cover it. After a root canal, we’ll use a crown to seal out exposure to further infection and restore the tooth’s strength and appearance. If your current dental crown has a chip, crack, or other damage, our team will evaluate your restoration’s condition and replace or repair it if necessary.
If you have one or more teeth with decay, damage, or other cause that’s rendered it irreparable, we may extract them. Our office will only perform an extraction when it’s necessary to preserve your overall health. Removing a tooth can effectively protect your mouth from further dental issues and relieve you of pain or discomfort. During your appointment, we make sure you’re as comfortable as possible, and we’ll help you choose a replacement option.
Your smile doesn’t lose its beauty from a cavity when we use tooth-colored fillings. After we treat your cavity by removing the affected tissue and cleaning the space, we fill it with a composite material. This material is durable, keeps out further decay, and matched to the color of the rest of your teeth.
