Sometimes there is no choice but to remove a tooth. Our doctor is highly proficient in tooth extractions, including impacted wisdom teeth. We employ the gentlest tooth removal techniques available today. He takes the time and care to insure that a tooth will be removed safely and gently insuring the least amount of post operative discomfort. The doctor is available 24/7 to take care of any post-op difficulties you may encounter.
Injuries to the mouth can cause teeth to be pushed back into their sockets. If the tooth is pushed partially out of the socket, your dentist may re-position and stabilize your tooth. If the pulp remains healthy, then no other treatment is necessary. However, if the pulp becomes damaged or infected, root canal treatment will be required. Root canal treatment is usually started within a few weeks of the injury and a medication, such as calcium hydroxide, will be placed inside the tooth. Eventually, a permanent root canal filling will be placed and the canal will be sealed.
