Injury or Accident
An injury or accident is a very common reason for a dental emergency. If you’ve experienced a mouth injury, it’s important to be seen as soon as possible. A broken or injured tooth may need immediate care such as a dental crown, filling or extraction. Once your dentist has examined your tooth, we can recommend the best solution for ridding your pain and caring for your smile.
A toothache should not be ignored. If you are experiencing a severe toothache, it’s important to be seen right away. A toothache may be caused by a tooth infection, decay, abscessed tooth or other dental issue. Once your dentist has evaluated your tooth, x-rays may also be taken to properly diagnose the problem. Once the reason for your pain has been discovered, treatment can be recommended. Common treatments for toothaches include root canal therapy and dental fillings. Our main priority will be to rid your pain and do everything we can to preserve your natural tooth.
