Caring for Your Dental
Look for broken-off pieces of your injured tooth and bring them with you to your appointment. If the entire tooth is knocked out of your mouth, find it quickly, pick it up by the crown (don’t touch the root), rinse off dirt and debris, and put it back in its socket (or a container of milk if need be). You need to get to our dental office right away if a tooth is lost; we only have an hour or two to attempt a replantation.
When swelling occurs, you can apply a cold compress to the area in order to reduce it. Toothaches and other oral pain can be managed with painkillers. Do not let the medication touch the tooth or the gums, as it can cause a burning sensation that only adds to your discomfort.
Severe facial trauma and bleeding that does not stop even after you apply pressure requires urgent medical attention from an emergency room. Once your life is no longer in danger, you can call our dental office so that we can help you find solutions for any of your teeth that were broken or lost due to physical trauma.
A dental emergency is exactly the kind of situation where you want to be 100% confident that your smile is in the hands of a true dental professional. Our dentists have many combined decades of dental experience, and Dr. Hayes in particular has had advanced training in using dental implants and other advanced treatments to repair and restore smiles. You’ll have someone to guide you through the process with compassion and a gentle touch during a very stressful situation.

Root Canal Therapy
The phrase “root canal” frightens quite a few patients, but there’s actually nothing to be afraid of. Indeed, if you have been dealing with a painful toothache for a long time, root canal therapy is actually an escape from your pain. The process involves removing the inner pulp after it has become infected. We also need to thoroughly clean the inside of the tooth, including the various passages of the root canal chamber. Then we can fill it with a biocompatible material and seal it shut so that there’s little to no risk of new inflammation in the future.
We use the latest tools and techniques to perform root canal therapy at our dental office. As a result, you won’t experience any more pain than you would during a routine filling treatment. Thanks to the high success rate of this procedure, you can save your tooth and potentially keep it for the rest of your life with good oral hygiene moving forward.
There are many things our team can do to try and save damaged teeth. Removal is never the first option; you’re always better off with a full set of natural teeth. Extractions are only performed after careful consideration of the circumstances, and our team will put your comfort and safety first during the procedure. You might need an extraction if:
- We’ve determined that you need orthodontic treatment or a new denture, but there’s not enough space in your mouth at the present.
- The tooth in question has become too badly decayed or injured to be able to support a filling, crown, or any other kind of restorative treatment.
- You have wisdom teeth trapped under the gums, crowding your other teeth, or causing a variety of other complications that put your oral health at risk.
