Receive Restorative Care or Other Treatment for Your Emergency

We use restorative dentistry for many emergencies, including broken teeth and infected teeth. Depending on your situation, our dentists may recommend:

  • Tooth Fillings – Many cavities can be fixed with fillings. Our restorations are made of tooth-colored composite, which blends into your smile better than metal fillings do.
  • Dental Crowns – A crown can fix all kinds of dental damage, including breaks, cracks, and severe decay. Your tooth will be stronger, so it will better resist further damage.
  • Root Canals – A root canal procedure saves your infected tooth. The only other option for an infected tooth is extraction.
  • Tooth Removal – Sometimes an extraction is the best option for your oral health. Our dentists can remove all kinds of teeth, even wisdom teeth.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – Our licensed periodontist (a gum specialist) will eliminate the pain and bleeding gums caused by gum disease.

Prevent Emergencies With Proactive Treatment

We’d rather prevent emergencies than treat them – and we bet you agree! We use technology like an intraoral camera and digital X-rays to find problems in their earliest stages so we can treat them before they worsen. In addition, we recommend:

  • Regular Dental Cleanings – See us every six months for professional cleanings and exams. These services are essential for keeping your teeth cavity-free.
  • Athletic Mouthguards – A custom-made mouthguard is the best way to protect your teeth from sports injuries.
