Tooth Pain Emergencies
Tooth pain does not always mean including intense procedures like root canal treatments or extractions. Tremendous pain is caused by a tooth that needs these procedures. Tooth pain can also need less comprehensive treatments like dental fillings or crowns and bridges. No matter the situation or treatment required, in most cases we will be able to help you the same day!
Gum Pain Emergencies
Pain from gums (periodontal disease) is also directly tied with tooth pain. For situations like this, you may actually need scaling and root planing, which are thorough teeth cleanings. We have an in house dental hygienist every day to get you started on the same day! If you have tooth pain with infection, swollen gums or oral tissues our dentist will assess and suggest options to eliminate the discomfort until we are able to complete treatment.
As mentioned earlier, other dental emergencies are not necessarily urgent from a pain standpoint, but from a cosmetic perspective. Our cosmetic dentistry options are available for patients looking to treat aesthetic emergencies as soon as possible. Some common cosmetic emergencies can include:
- Fractured/Chipped Tooth
- Lost/Broken Filling
- Lost/Broken Crown
