Your Emergency May Require Restorative Dentistry
- Tooth Fillings – We can often repair cavities using fillings. We use tooth-colored composite fillings instead of metal fillings so your smile will have a completely natural appearance.
- Dental Crowns – For dental damage like broken teeth, cracked teeth, and large cavities, we’ll likely use a crown to address your issue and strengthen your tooth.
- Gum Disease Treatment – Using treatments like scaling and root planing, we’ll eliminate the pain and bleeding often caused by gum disease. Unlike many dental practices, you’ll receive your gum care from a licensed periodontist.
- Root Canals – During a root canal procedure, Dr. Sperry will remove infection from inside your tooth. This not only keeps your tooth intact but also prevents the infection from spreading.
- Tooth Removal – When an extraction is the best choice for your dental health, we can remove your tooth. We even remove wisdom teeth.
Keep Emergencies From Happening With Proactive Care
The best way of dealing with a dental emergency is preventing it from ever happening. That’s why we use technology like an intraoral camera and digital X-rays to find problems before they can become emergencies. In addition, you can make emergencies less likely with:
- Regular Dental Cleanings – Professional cleanings and exams help keep teeth free of cavities and gum disease. We recommend seeing us every six months for these general dental care services.
- Athletic Mouthguards – We suggest wearing a mouthguard to protect your teeth from injury during sports. Our custom-made mouthguards fit better than those from a store.
