What is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency refers to a problem involving your teeth, gums, or mouth that requires prompt treatment. A dental emergency could take the form of:

  • A knocked-out tooth
  • A cracked tooth
  • A dislodged tooth
  • A lost or damaged dental restoration
  • Severe or sustained bleeding
  • An abscess in the gums

If you suspect that you or a loved one has suffered a dental emergency, call our office, and our friendly team can schedule you an appointment as soon as possible.

Dental Crowns to Repair Damaged Teeth

If you have a chipped, cracked, or otherwise damaged tooth, a dental crown may be the right dental restoration for your situation. If you have lost a crown or have one that is now damaged, we can provide you with a new crown fitted for your comfort. It takes up to two weeks for your crown to be made at a dental lab. While you wait for your custom-fitted crown, we provide you with a temporary crown to protect your vulnerable tooth.

Root Canal Therapy to Save Infected or Decayed Teeth

Root canal therapy is a treatment used when a tooth's nerves are threatened by decay or infection. With this treatment, the infected tissue (pulp) within your tooth can be removed, along with harmful bacteria and decay.

Receiving this dental procedure quickly is essential, as the treatment can save your tooth and make extraction unnecessary. If you have a tooth that hurts when you eat, has unexpectedly become discolored over a short time, or your gums are swelling, you may have an infected tooth that requires root canal therapy.

Extractions to Support Your Well-being

Symptoms that need a dental visit as quickly as possible include severe toothaches, bleeding or swelling of the gums, and sensitivity to hot and cold foods or beverages. Should you have a decayed or infected tooth, we may recommend removing it to restore your oral health.

When at all possible, we prefer to leave your natural teeth in place. If it is necessary to remove a tooth for your dental well-being, Dr. Syed has the experience and training to perform gentle extractions. She can also remove wisdom teeth in our office. We always discuss the options available to you so that you can feel comfortable with your selected treatment.

Should you have one or more missing teeth, our practice offers a wide range of replacements to meet your specific needs. Our options for replacing missing teeth include:

  • Crowns
  • Fixed Bridges
  • Partial & Full Dentures
  • Implant-Supported Restorations

Compassionately Treating Gum Disease

Our team offers nonjudgmental, effective treatments for gum disease to restore and protect your smile. Emergency dental situations can take many forms, each of which requires prompt, professional treatment to protect your overall health. If you notice severe bleeding from your gums, have an abscess or one or more loose teeth, you should schedule an appointment with our dentist as quickly as possible.

If your gum disease has reached below the gumline, we offer scaling and root planing in our office. This is a two-step process that targets your gum disease and reduces the risk of a recurring infection. For more complex gum issues, a trusted periodontist visits our practice to carry out gum surgeries and other advanced treatments. You can rely on our team to address your gum disease with quick, compassionate treatment.
