At McCue Dental Health, we offer same-day appointments and a wide range of emergency dental services.
Root canals are usually required if a tooth is severely infected, or if it has been broken and the interior pulp has been exposed to oral bacteria. A root canal is used to remove infected tooth material, and replace it with an inert material called “gutta percha”. Once the tooth has been disinfected and restored, it’s usually repaired with a filling or a dental crown, to protect it from any further damage.
Tooth splints may be used to keep loose teeth from falling out, or to restore a tooth that has been knocked out of its socket (dental avulsion). During this treatment, the loose tooth is bonded to the surrounding teeth and held in place, saving the tooth and ensuring that the roots heal properly.
In some cases, a tooth can’t be saved by a root canal or splinting. In these situations, the best option is to extract and remove the tooth completely, and replace it with a prosthetic such as a dental implant, a partial denture, or a dental bridge. We offer gentle extractions by using localized anesthetic during the procedure to minimize pain and discomfort.
Advanced cases of periodontal disease are serious dental emergencies, and can result in the loss of most or all of your teeth. At McCue Dental Health, we use scaling and root planing, antibiotic treatments, and gum flap surgery to fight against infection, and preserve your teeth and gums.
Bone grafting is used to repair your jaw after a tooth has been lost and the jaw bone has begun to deteriorate. Typically, a bone graft is used to prepare the site for the insertion of a dental implant.
Repair And Replacement Of Dental Work
If a filling, crown, or veneer is knocked loose from your mouth, this is a serious dental emergency. Dr. McCue can repair, restore, or replace this dental work, ensuring your teeth are protected and strengthened.
