Many Emergencies Require Restorative Care
If you’ve experienced an emergency, it’s likely you’ll need a restorative dental treatment. We treat common emergencies with:
- Tooth Fillings – If a cavity is causing dental pain, we’ll often repair it with a filling. We use non-metal fillings, so your smile will look natural. For larger cavities, we may use another dental restoration like an inlay or onlay.
- Dental Crowns – A crown can be used for more severe decay. It can also mend a cracked or broken tooth, protecting it from infection or other further damage.
- Root Canals – If your toothache is caused by infection inside your tooth, Dr. Theiss can perform a root canal. This not only relieves your pain but also allows you to keep the tooth intact.
- Tooth Extractions – If your tooth is so damaged it needs to be removed, we can extract it. Dr. Theiss can even remove wisdom teeth in many instances.
