Besides untreated cavities and periodontal disease, sudden trauma, impacted teeth, or an overly crowded smile may be reasons why you would need a tooth extraction. You should schedule an emergency visit to our practice if you are experiencing:
- A painful toothache
- Sudden sensitivity
- Severe swelling
- A fever
During your exam, we will determine whether your tooth can be saved or whether it is too damaged or decayed.
Root Canal Treated Teeth
Root canal teeth can harbor infection painlessly. We use the latest in 3D CT imaging to check your root canal teeth for infection. Regular two-dimensional imaging often hides or poorly demonstrates the existence of infection around a tooth. Proper diagnoses and the best information are key to making informed decisions about what is best for you and your overall health.
