My tooth hurts - what do I do?

Don’t wait and hope your tooth pain will go away on its own. Tooth pain has a number of potential causes, including an infection, impacted tooth, or damaged filling – and does not necessarily mean an extraction is needed. However, when a tooth does need to come out, it’s usually best done sooner than later.

Bottom line: if you’re experiencing tooth pain, give us a call so we can schedule you for an appointment. That’s the fastest way to help remedy the problem.

Tooth extraction isn't just for wisdom teeth

Everyone has heard of wisdom teeth being removed – especially for teens and young adults. However, there are multiple other reasons why an adult may need a tooth extraction.

Excessive tooth decay, tooth infection, and overcrowding are all factors. While that may sound scary, most tooth extractions are routine, simple, and relatively painless. Teeth that are severely broken or sit below the gums may require a small surgical incision.
