Dental Accidents & Facial Trauma
A dental emergency can be classified as any time that you feel any discomfort or dental pain. In the event that you’re experiencing dental pain or trauma, it’s best to reach out to your local dentist for help addressing your concerns first rather than visiting another health professional or even your nearest emergency room. Either way, you might end up being referred to our office in the end. The sooner we begin treatment, the less likely patients are to experience additional oral health issues.
Dental Emergencies Due to Oral Care Neglect
Are you experiencing an excruciating, consistent toothache that’s just becoming worse over time? It’s likely that there’s an advanced infection located under the enamel that needs immediate attention. Many patients and families don’t know the exact steps to take when dealing with a dental emergency like this one. Although we can’t explain every scenario one by one, here are the general steps that you want to take until you can visit our office:
- Stay calm despite what your dental emergency is.
- Call our office right away for helpful dental advice.
- Be sure to schedule an appointment with us right away.
- Gather any materials, tooth pieces, or first aid tools you may need until you can visit our office.
- Drive safely while you travel to us.

Root Canal Therapy
Has one of your teeth developed a strong ache or become very sensitive to hot and cold temperature? It may have developed an advanced bacterial infection underneath the enamel. In these cases, root canal therapy is strongly recommended. With a root canal, we can help you restore the function and appearance of your tooth while also successfully rescuing it from the threat of extraction. Contrary to popular belief, this procedure is highly successful and no more uncomfortable than receiving a simple filling.
Most of the time, our dentist will not recommend an extraction as a first choice. Unfortunately, this procedure can become an a necessity in certain circumstances. Sedation dentistry and/or nitrous oxide is available to help make this procedure as smooth and free of stress as it can possibly be. If your removed tooth or teeth need to be replaced, we will also start working with you right away on a reconstructive solution, such as dental implants.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
In case of complications like overcrowding or impaction (becoming trapped within the jawbone), we recommend that teenagers and young adults have their wisdom teeth extracted before they begin erupting through the gums. Our dentists have the specialty skills and training needed to handle this procedure very comfortably, and sedation dentistry is available upon request if patients need a little extra help feeling relaxed in the treatment chair.
