It always seems like an emergency happens at the worst time, and a dental emergency is no different. There are a number of reasons why a patient may experience an emergency. One of the most common is failure to receive a recommended treatment in a timely manner, and then the problem progresses. When an emergency happens, it can be difficult to determine when a visit to our office is necessary. One emergency that always requires a visit to our office is a cracked tooth.
Are your teeth badly decayed or infected? Do you worry that the only solution is to remove them? Don’t panic. There’s a procedure that can save your teeth, get rid of the pain, and prevent it from coming back: a root canal treatment. Even though you may think of a root canal as painful and uncomfortable, thanks to modern dental technology, we can perform this procedure effectively and virtually pain-free.
