A dental emergency can occur at virtually any time, regardless of how well you take care of your smile. Unfortunately, it's not uncommon for many of these emergencies to leave a patient in severe pain and discomfort. For this reason, you'll want to consider coming in for treatment as soon as you notice there's a problem. We offer treatment in a relaxed, highly comfortable setting for patients of all ages.
A dental emergency can get worse in a short period of time without proper treatment. Something that would be considered more minor can escalate to where it is a real issue. In some cases, infections may occur and need treatment alongside the actual emergency that you're dealing with at the moment. This is why we recommend quick, adequate treatment as soon as possible.
We see a number of different dental emergencies on any given day. For this reason, we recommend coming in to be seen whenever you notice something is wrong. Some of the more common emergencies include,
• Severe toothache and pain
• Abscessing and infections
• Broken or cracked teeth
• Lost fillings, crowns or bridge work
• Broken or lost appliances (dentures, night guards)
The first thing we'll do is to ask you about the problem you're currently experiencing. This allows us to see if an x-ray is necessary and if it is, we will work to take one quickly and easily. We examine the x-ray and your teeth to determine the root cause of the actual problem. You will then have treatment administered while you're in the office, as this helps to prevent the problem from getting worse. We will prescribe antibiotics if there is an active infection present at the time of your appointment.
If you think you might have an emergency and want to come in to see someone, call our office today and our helpful staff members can further assist you.
General dental procedures are specific to correcting the functioning of your teeth while helping improve cosmetic problems. General dentistry is ideal for both adult and pediatric patients. It is geared specifically to each individual patient, so your treatment will be different from another person coming in for care. We offer a wide range of different general dental procedures that can benefit your oral health.
General dentistry has many different purposes. For one, it helps to restore oral functioning so that it's easier for you to eat and chew. Many procedures help to eliminate pain and problems associated with one or more teeth. Another reason for why general dentistry is so important is because it corrects cosmetic issues that you might be experiencing concerning your smile.
Everyone is a candidate for general dentistry procedures. Our goal is to provide you with the care that you and your family need in a relaxed and modern environment.
