Restorative Care Resolves Many Dental Emergencies
Call our office right away if you’re uncomfortable. The sooner you seek our help, the sooner we can restore your smile and relieve your pain. Here is how we handle some common emergency situations:
- Toothache – If a cavity is causing your toothache, our dentists will fix it with the appropriate dental restoration: a filling, an inlay, or an onlay. For very large cavities, we’ll use a dental crown. If an infected tooth is the cause, we will perform a root canal procedure.
- Knocked-Out Tooth – If you can get to us ASAP, our dentists may be able to re-implant a knocked-out tooth. Keep it in the socket, if possible. If not, don’t handle it by the root, and transport it in a container of saliva or milk.
- Broken Tooth – A crown can mend a broken tooth so it looks and feels as good as new. With our CEREC technology, you can get your crown in a single visit to our office.
- Broken Restoration – If you’ve broken a crown or other restoration, we’ll repair it as quickly as possible. We can usually provide a temporary restoration for you to wear, if necessary.
