Broken and knocked out teeth are extremely common dental emergencies, and they’re often the result of sports-related incidents, motor vehicle accidents, or just a clumsy fall at home. In any case, we’re able to fully repair extremely damaged teeth and even replant ones that have been completely dislodged.
If you or a loved one ever find yourselves in this kind of situation, be sure to recover as much of the tooth/teeth as you can and give our office a call as soon as possible. We’ll let you know what to do next so we can save your smile!
Do you have a toothache that is currently causing you a lot of pain? To get the immediate relief you need, be sure to:
Even just the mention of “root canal therapy” can send shivers down a patient’s spine – but is this essential procedure really that scary? In truth, the pain that most patients associate with it is the discomfort of having a tooth that’s heavily infected, which is what root canal therapy is designed to treat!
During this process, our dentists will access the inner canals of the tooth and clean them out thoroughly, replacing the infected tissue with a biocompatible material and then sealing the structure shut. Not only can root canal therapy rescue countless teeth from extraction, but it also enables patients to continue enjoying these very same teeth for many years to come.
When it comes to your priceless teeth, our team will do everything we possibly can to help you keep them healthy and strong. Despite our best efforts, though, extraction can become a necessity in certain situations, such as when you’ve experienced a traumatic injury or an area of decay has become so severe that regular restorative procedures (fillings, crowns, etc) can’t rebuild what’s been lost. Whatever your personal circumstances are, one thing is certain – you’ll always be treated comfortably and compassionately here at our practice.
Your third molars (also known as “wisdom teeth”) are the last teeth to emerge past the gum line and into your confident adult smile – but more often than not, this arrival isn’t exactly a happy occasion. Because of the limited remaining space in the mouth, wisdom teeth can easily cause dangerous overcrowding, infections, cyst formation, damage to nearby teeth, or even become impacted (trapped in the jawbone). If our doctors determine that these situations are likely to occur or have already occurred with the help of digital X-rays, we can remove these teeth for the sake of our patients’ safety and ongoing wellbeing.
