Common Problems for Dental Emergencies
When breaking a tooth, it’s very important to have the tooth repaired. Depending on the severity of the break it can be remedied with a composite filling or a porcelain crown.
The technology in our office allows us to provide single Same Day Cerec crowns to our patients. That means you do not have to wait 2 – 3 weeks for a dental lab to create your restoration.
Broken Front Tooth
Some special instructions when breaking a front tooth is to keep any fragments if possible. This will help your dental team match the color of your tooth and/or help remake a temporary tooth that resembles your previous tooth.
If you are noticing some swelling, chances are there may be an infection present. Please do not wait to get this treated. Going untreated for a long period of time could result in a visit to the ER. Draining infections will provide pain relief after your appointment. We will get you out of pain and into a comfortable place. If you experience dental anxiety, we can prescribe you a medication to help you relax.
Sometimes our teeth can be very sensitive to temperature. Often times this indicates to us that decay has entered your nerve space in the tooth. Depending on how extensive the decay is on the tooth it can be remedied with a composite filling and a special medication beneath it. Another scenario is having the nerve treated and a full coverage crown over it. The crown will protect your tooth from any further damage and breakage.

Information about Dental Conscious Sedation
We can prescribe you a medication to sedate you while undergoing dental treatment after reviewing your health history and potential allergies. This medication has helped hundreds of our patients receive the care they need by allowing them to be relaxed and drowsy.
The difference between General Anesthesia and Conscious Sedation is there are no needles and large equipment. It’s an easy and convenient to administer in the dental chair. While medication affects everyone differently, patients have reported having no memory of their appointment and no pain.
