If a tooth is damaged or lost due to trauma, such as a car accident or sports injury, call Emergency Dental as soon as possible. When you come to the office, bring the broken or lost tooth with you. We will take immediate steps to save the tooth and repair the injury.
A painful infection at the root of a tooth or between the gum and a tooth.
Removal of the nerve and pulp of a tooth that is badly decayed or infected in order to repair and save the tooth.
Dental bridges fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth/teeth in between.
Emergency Dental can repair retainers or other dental appliances that break.
Decayed teeth can be sensitive and painful. These decayed spaces, called cavities, are repaired with fillings. An Emergency Dental dentist will remove the decayed spot on the tooth, then “fill” that area to seal it and prevent further decay. Fillings also can be used to fix broken or cracked teeth.
Fillings used to repair cavities or repair cracked/broken teeth can fall out or break. These fillings can be replaced at Emergency Dental.
Teeth are extracted, or pulled, to relieve a crowded mouth, remove wisdom teeth, fight gum disease or reduce infection. They are also extracted when they are so broken or decayed they can’t be repaired.
Emergency Dental will evaluate a swollen jaw to check for signs of infection or abscess, tooth decay, gum disease, injury, or wisdom teeth coming in improperly.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that covers a badly decayed or damaged tooth to restore its shape and size, strengthen it, and/or to improve its appearance.
Broken and Fractured Teeth
Fillings, bondings, caps or crowns can be used to repair a tooth that has broken due to a fall, receiving a blow to the face, or biting down on something hard.
