Q. Will I need a consultation if it’s an emergency?
A dental emergency can include severe tooth pain, facial swelling, abscess, or trauma such as a knocked-out tooth, or any other serious dental issue that requires immediate attention.
In such cases, a dental consultation is usually necessary to assess the situation and determine the best course of action.
Q. What happens if I have tooth decay?
Depending on the severity of the decay, your dentist may recommend a variety of treatment options. In some cases, the dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and fill it with a dental filling, inlay or crown. However, if the decay has progressed too far, your dentist may recommend a root canal or tooth extraction. It is important to address tooth decay as soon as possible to prevent further damage and potential complications.
Q. Can you help my toothache?
Toothaches are often a symptom of a more serious dental issue, such as a cavity, abscess, or gum disease. During your appointment, we’ll examine your teeth and gums to determine the cause of your toothache. We may also take X-rays to get a better look at your teeth and jawbone. We will provide you with options for dental treatment to alleviate your toothache.
Q. What happens if I have gum disease?
We might recommend a deep cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing, which involves removing plaque and tartar from below the gum line and smoothing out any rough spots on the roots of the teeth to help promote healing. We’ll also provide guidance on proper oral hygiene techniques and recommend lifestyle changes to help prevent gum disease from recurring in the future.
