The Dental Center offers dental urgent care procedures that will have you feeling better in no time. Our most common emergency dental procedures are root canals and tooth extractions.
A root canal, also known as endodontic treatment, occurs when the “root” of the tooth, or the pulp, is removed. Each of your teeth is usually filled with dental pulp, a collection of blood vessels and nerves inside the tooth. When this pulp becomes infected, it can cause intense pain (commonly known as a toothache) that requires immediate treatment. The infected pulp is known as pulpitis, which is usually caused by tooth decay. A root canal is a common procedure that relieves tooth pain by removing the damaged pulp, filling the tooth, and sealing it off so you can return to normal daily functions.
Another common procedure is known as tooth extraction and occurs when a tooth is removed from the socket of your mouth because of decay or damage. Sometimes a tooth is removed to accommodate orthodontic procedures. Tooth extraction is considered an urgent procedure because a damaged tooth causes pain and can affect the alignment of the remaining teeth.
