Emergency Dentistry

Many dental emergencies result in treatment for an infected tooth. Root canals are not always the best treatment choice, but when you have a tooth that can be saved by a root canal, we can help. People don’t want to lose their teeth and neither do we.

In the past, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you’d probably lose that tooth. Now, with “root canal therapy,” your tooth can be saved. When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp tissue and germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. If left untreated, an abscess may form. If the infected tissue is not removed, pain and swelling can result. This can injure your jawbones and be harmful to your overall health.
