Every case is unique. Some problems such as a chipped tooth may be treatable in a single visit. Some problems like a toothache caused by extensive decay or gum disease might require a more complex treatment. Whatever the situation may be, we will take steps to get you out of pain ASAP, and then proceed with further treatment if necessary.
Extractions – We want to help you keep all of your natural teeth healthy, for life. Unfortunately, that isn’t always possible. If the tooth is too badly damaged to restore , an extraction maybe the best option. Once your pain is relieved, we can discuss replacement options such as a bridge, denture, or implant.
Bonding – Painful chipped or cracked teeth can often be repaired with a simple, conservative bonding procedure. This may be a temporary or permanent solution.
Medication – An infected nerve inside a tooth can cause excruciating pain, and it usually needs a root canal procedure to solve the problem. Depending on the circumstances, it may not be possible or practical to perform the procedure immediately, but antibiotics will provide temporary relief until the tooth is treated.
