For most people, their first instinct in a dental emergency is to head to their closest ER, where they will likely spend hours waiting before being seen by someone with little to no dental training. If you or a loved one are in need of urgent dental care, go ahead and just call MayFair Dental Associates. We’re ready and able to handle all dental emergencies, and we’ll be able to see you much faster than the ER. Our goal is to help patients get out of pain as quickly as possible so they can get back to their normal lives.
Whether due to a sports-related injury, motor vehicle accident, or just a clumsy fall at home, broken and knocked out teeth are some of the most common emergencies we deal with. Fortunately, we’re able to fully repair severely damaged teeth and even replant those that have been completely dislodged. Patients in this situation should try to recover as much of the tooth/teeth as they can and give us a call right away. We’ll be able to walk them through what to do next and will likely schedule a same-day appointment.
Is one of your teeth in a lot of pain? If you need immediate relief for a bad toothache, make sure to:
Dr. Nicole Meadows and Dr. Linda Goodman both have had extensive careers in dentistry (each with more than 35 years of experience), meaning that they have personally handled pretty much any dental emergency you can imagine. No matter what your problem might be, you can trust that they have helped countless patients through it before. And, if you’re dealing with a soft tissue injury, our in-house periodontist Dr. Mark Isler can provide the specialty services patients need without having to wait.
If a dental infection is able to reach the internal layer of a tooth, it will probably cause quite a bit of pain, because this is where a delicate nerve is located. To stop this kind of pain and save the tooth from extraction, our dentists can provide root canal therapy. For this procedure, they’ll simply remove the infected portions of the tooth, clean it, and then rebuild it with a custom-made restoration. Thanks to modern-day dental techniques, this often-feared dental procedure is now no more “excruciating” than getting a small filling!
Our primary goal is to help our patients preserve their natural teeth for as long as possible, but sometimes, the best thing we can do is simply remove a problem tooth. We may recommend an extraction if:
We often choose to remove the wisdom teeth as well, as most people don’t have enough room for them in their mouth. Whatever the situation may be, we make sure our extraction patients stay completely comfortable from beginning to end using a combination of local anesthetic and sedation dentistry.
