At Caring 4 Smiles we understand you may require Oral surgery or emergency dentistry at short notice. For this reason we keep emergency time aside in our day to accommodate urgent treatment. Our team will do their best to deal with your emergency dentistry as quickly as possible and make you comfortable. Definitive treatment will follow at subsequent visits. Dental Emergencies are usually relief of acute pain, emergency root canal treatment or an extraction.
Oral Surgery and Extractions
Our team has experience and a very special interest in Oral Surgery. However, in the performance of oral surgical cases, the Caring 4 Smiles team do not believe in choosing extractions and surgery as a first option in care. For us, it is the absolute last resort. We are constantly moving patients away from losing natural teeth because the cost of replacement is high and nothing comes close to the ‘real tooth’.
Root Canal Therapy
Also known as Endodontics, Root Canal Therapy is designed to save infected teeth. The purpose of this treatment is to conserve a tooth that has been damaged by decay, fracture or an abscess and normal restorative procedures are no longer possible. Symptoms of dental nerve damage are:
- Lingering tooth sensitivity to hot or cold liquids
- Tooth sensitivity to sweets
- Tooth pain to biting pressure
- Impulsive, constant or intermittent tooth pain
- Severe throbbing tooth pain
- Swollen face
