Emergency

When help is needed fast {here}

An accident or unexpected dental emergency can be stressful and painful. We appreciate the delicacy of these experiences and have all the right resources to give you greater comfort fast. Whether an infection has gotten worse, or you’ve cracked a tooth unexpectedly, trust our specialists to help urgently with root canals, extractions and more.

Dental Infections

An infection otherwise know as a “tooth abscess” is a pocket of pus triggered by bacterial infection. Infections can occur as a result of an untreated dental cavity, an injury or prior dental work. Such infection will not go away on its own, so it’s imperative that the patient see a specialist immediately. Our team will work to diagnose, treat and create long-term plans for future prevention.

Extractions

If trauma or infection has created the urgency to have a tooth extracted, call our specialists immediately for consult. We can work with you to come up with a future plan for implants, bridges or other solutions that will restore your smile and dental health.

Emergency Triage

We invest in the best imaging technology on the market to help us see every part of a patient’s mouth very clearly, on and far under the surface, with the least amount of discomfort ever. If we detect a problem, our specialists have the chance to look even deeper with unmatched resolution to be most accurate in diagnosis.

Our in-house product family includes handheld digital x-ray systems that are painless and safe for our patients. We also conduct intra-oral imaging that helps us talk to patients about possible concerns while they see every part of their mouth and dental surfaces on our high definition screens. This makes for the most informed Q&A and treatment discussions with our specialists.

Cone Beam 3-D Imaging gives us a vivid look at your whole mouth from top to bottom, front to back…including highly detailed photographic quality images of all teeth, roots, gum tissue, soft palate and surrounding jaw areas. If there is anything hiding (or missing) under the surface, we will find it and help you address it immediately!
