Emergency Walk-in Dentistry

Dental emergencies are painful and often unexpected. The pain may come from your tooth, your gums, your jaw or a combination of the aforementioned. Depending on the evaluation, some of the common emergency treatments are:

Toothache Extraction

If the tooth can no longer be saved. If decay progressed beyond the gum line and/caused severe destruction of the tooth, the removal of the broken down tooth structure may be necessary. In the event the extraction becomes inevitable, we will discuss the procedure and options for replacement of the space

Root canal

If the nerve inside the tooth is inflamed and infected due to decay, fracture or trauma, the root canal procedure will become necessary. The procedure involves removal of inflamed and infected nerve tissues and sealing the tooth with guttapercha and sealer, draining of the abscess. If the surrounding gum is infected due to bone loss, gum loss or trauma.
