Dental Emergencies

Tooth Extractions: When a tooth severely is infected, gum disease has eaten away the bone supporting it or there is not enough tooth left to restore with a root canal and crown, it is advised to remove the tooth. We understand that this can be a stressful and sometimes emotional situation for our patients. We will always ensure that you are comfortable and that this is the best treatment for you. We offer Nitrous Oxide gas inhalation to ease anxiety upon request.

When a tooth is removed, almost half of the bone that was supporting it will disappear within the first year after extraction. We recommend exploring all possible options to restore the missing tooth as quickly as possible for this reason, such as implants and bridges. We routinely place bone grafts to provide necessary scaffolding while you are awaiting your planned restoration. This will be discussed prior to extraction.

Dental injuries: Whether it's sports or another type of accident tooth injuries are common. It is important to see a dentist as soon as possible after a tooth receives any type of force. Following an injury, regular follow up is paramount to assess for any changes. Teeth can develop infections or other complications at any time after they have been injured. Make sure to let us know if any teeth have had trauma in the past or recently.
