How We Deal with Common Dental Emergencies
Some dental emergencies we see frequently at Dores Dental include:
- Knocked-out tooth. Dr. Dores will try to keep your tooth by reinserting it into its socket. If this isn’t an option, he can recommend a dental implant or a same-day dental bridge to replace your tooth.
- Broken tooth. If you break or crack your tooth, Dr. Dores can repair it with a dental crown. The crown not only covers the damage but also strengthens your tooth. And because we use CEREC technology to create same-day crowns right in our Longmeadow, MA office, you won’t have to wait for several weeks to get your crown.
- Infected tooth. When infection sets in, it really hurts. And worse, if the infection isn’t removed, you can end up losing your tooth. Dr. Dores can perform a root canal to get the infection out of your tooth.
If the damage to your tooth is too extensive for a root canal, trusted Longmeadow, MA dentist Dr. Dores can extract it with minimum pain.
