Dental emergencies happen at random and can affect your ability to carry out your daily routine. We understand that emergencies are uncontrollable, which is why we offer same day emergency appointments. Our office works around busy schedules just like yours, so that you can receive the dental care you need.

A dental emergency service can include any of the following:

  • Fractured or broken tooth
  • Severe toothache
  • Broken filling
  • Unexplained tooth loss
  • Painful, bleeding, or swollen gums

When patients experience extreme sensitivity, pain from a broken tooth, or are suffering from advanced periodontal disease, your dentist could recommend that you have a tooth extracted. During a simple extraction, the dentist can safely remove the affected tooth without the need for major surgery.

There are numerous situations in which a simple extraction is needed. Extractions are typically performed because of an active problem such as pain, swelling, decay, infection, as a preventative measure to avoid serious problems in the future, or to prepare your for another cosmetic or restorative procedure.

Common reasons for tooth extractions include:

  • Advanced periodontal disease that has loosened the roots of your tooth
  • Extra teeth or baby teeth that impede adult teeth
  • Preparing a patient for orthodontic treatment
  • Removing a fractured or malformed tooth
  • Severe tooth decay which cannot be remedied with root canal therapy
  • Removal of wisdom teeth
