Fixing Your Dental Emergency
Some dental emergencies we see often at Jennifer Perkins, DDS are:
- Knocked-out tooth. We’ll try to save your tooth by reinserting it into its socket. If this isn’t an option, we’ll likely suggest a dental implant or a dental bridge to replace your tooth. We’ll relieve your pain and prepare the area for the procedure.
- Broken tooth. If you break or crack your tooth, we can usually repair it with a dental crown. The dental crown not only covers the damage but also strengthens your tooth. If the break is too severe for a dental crown, we’ll gently extract your tooth.
- Toothache. If your toothache is caused by a cavity, we’ll clean out the decay and place a tooth-colored filling.
No matter which procedure you need for your dental emergency, we’ll make sure you are comfortable. We’ll thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthesia.
And we’ll help you relax with:
- Soft pillows
- Warm blankets
- TVs to distract you while we work
- Dental sedation, if you need it
