We’ll Solve Your Problem With Restorative Dental Care
We address common dental emergencies with restorative dental care:
- Knocked-Out Tooth – If you get to us right away, we may be able to reimplant the tooth. Handle it gently and don’t touch the root. If you can’t keep it in your mouth, transport it to our office in a container of milk or saliva.
- Broken Tooth – We can repair a broken tooth with a dental crown. If the break leaves a jagged or sharp edge, use dental wax or even sugarless chewing gum to keep it from cutting your mouth. Don’t bite down on the tooth.
- Toothache – If your toothache is caused by a cavity, we’ll repair it with a dental restoration, usually a filling or a crown. If an infection is what’s making your tooth hurt, you will need a root canal procedure.
Our Endodontist Specializes in Saving Damaged Teeth
For the most extensive dental damage, you may receive care from Dr. Josh Gorman, an endodontist. Less than 3 percent of dentists are also endodontists, according to the American Association of Endodontists. They have completed at least two years of postgraduate education in solving problems like infection that affect the inside of teeth. Because of this, he is our go-to dentist for root canals and similar procedures.
