Not all dental issues should wait until your next appointment. At Dorsett Dental Care, we offer emergency dentistry services for patients who are dealing with critical issues that require immediate care.

What is Emergency Dentistry?

You might be having a dental emergency if you’re experiencing a severe toothache, an impacted tooth, or sore gums. These concerns could be the result of a severe issue that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. Delaying treatment can worsen the situation and could even be life-threatening.

The emergency dentistry services we offer at our office include the following:

  • Root canals
  • Tooth extractions

Our Root Canal Treatments

Root canals are necessary when a tooth’s nerve becomes infected and causes pain. During this procedure, we will remove the nerve and thoroughly clean the inside of the tooth to ensure the infection is gone. We understand how scary root canals seem, but we can assure you there’s no need to worry! We offer sedation to prevent you from feeling pain during the treatment and to help keep you calm.

Our Tooth Extraction ServiceS

When a tooth becomes impacted, it will need to be extracted. Depending on the situation, we will perform a simple or surgical extraction. During a simple tooth extraction, we remove what’s visible above the gum line. We will need to make an incision in your gum line and remove the tooth below it during a surgical extraction.
