Restoring Comfort and Health

When you come into our office for an emergency, our top priority is minimizing pain and ensuring you are comfortable. Our Canton emergency dental team will see you as soon as possible in order to protect your oral health. Prolonging treatment may result in avoidable complications that require extensive procedures, as opposed to a simple restorative treatment. 

Dental Emergency Treatment in Canton

Many signs of an emergency begin with discomfort. However, a dental injury that doesn’t immediately cause pain can be classified as an emergency. The following are common dental emergencies: 

Toothache

If you are experiencing a highly sensitive tooth, you may have major decay that has reached the tooth’s nerves. During your emergency dental appointment at our Canton office, we recommend a root canal or crown restoration, depending on the severity of the decay.  

Broken Tooth

Chipped or cracked enamel can become an entry point for bacteria to access the dental pulp that keeps the tooth healthy. This type of emergency can occur from a physical injury or a broken restoration. We can provide chairside dental bonding using composite resin or apply a dental crown to rebuild the broken tooth and protect it from further damage. 

Dislodged Tooth

If you’ve knocked out a tooth, we can restore your missing tooth with a dental bridge. Our emergency dentist determines your health, treats you for any pain due to the lost tooth, and recommends a variety of procedures to rebuild your smile. For the longest lasting solution to missing teeth, dental implants are a provided to replace the entire tooth from root to crown. 
Abscess 

This dental problem is a result of an untreated cavity, injury, or failing, older dental work. An abscess is created when bacteria collect at the tip of the tooth root. In order to save the tooth, the abscess must be drained. Root canal treatment is recommended, and antibiotics can be provided if needed. In the most severe cases, an abscessed tooth must be removed to protect your overall health.
