When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected or inflamed, a root canal procedure may be necessary to save the tooth from extraction. Our dentist performs root canals with precision and care, removing the infected pulp, disinfecting the area, and sealing it with a dental filling or crown. This treatment allows you to retain your natural tooth and restore its functionality, avoiding the need for extraction and further restorative procedures.
In cases where a tooth is severely damaged or cannot be saved, tooth extraction may be required. Our dentist performs extractions with utmost care, ensuring minimal discomfort during the procedure. We also offer various tooth replacement options, such as dental implants, bridges, or dentures, to restore your smile and oral functionality.
Dental emergencies encompass a range of situations, including severe toothaches, knocked-out teeth, broken or chipped teeth, loose or lost fillings or crowns, dental abscesses, and injuries to the mouth or jaw. If you are experiencing significant pain, bleeding, or have a dental concern that requires immediate attention, it is likely a dental emergency.
It is recommended to seek emergency dental care as soon as possible if you are experiencing intense pain, have a knocked-out or severely damaged tooth, are bleeding excessively, or have a dental infection with swelling. Prompt treatment increases the chances of successful intervention and prevents further complications.
Yes, our office prioritizes accommodating walk-in patients with dental emergencies. However, it is advisable to call ahead if possible, so the dental team can prepare for your arrival and provide appropriate care promptly.
While waiting to see the dentist, you can try rinsing your mouth with warm saltwater, taking over-the-counter pain relievers (following the instructions), and applying a cold compress to the affected area. Avoid using aspirin directly on the tooth or gum, as it can cause tissue irritation.
If your tooth is knocked out, try to handle it by the crown (top) and avoid touching the root. Gently rinse the tooth with water without scrubbing or removing any attached tissue. If possible, try placing the tooth back in its socket, or keep it in a container of milk or saliva until you can reach a dentist. Time is crucial, so seek immediate dental care.
The treatment for a chipped tooth depends on the severity of the chip. A dentist may repair a minor chip with dental bonding, which involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin to the affected area. For more significant damage, dental crowns, veneers, or inlays/onlays may be recommended to restore the tooth's appearance and strength.
Yes, at Elite Smiles of Pflugerville, we offer same-day crowns using advanced CEREC technology. With CEREC, we can create custom-made dental crowns on-site, eliminating the need for multiple visits and temporary restorations. This allows us to provide efficient and convenient emergency dental care.
A root canal is a procedure performed to save a severely infected or damaged tooth. It involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp from the tooth's root canal, cleaning and disinfecting the area, and sealing it with a dental filling or crown. Root canals are typically performed under local anesthesia to ensure patient comfort.
Tooth extractions are usually performed under local anesthesia, ensuring that the procedure is as comfortable and painless as possible. However, some post-operative discomfort or soreness may be experienced once the anesthesia wears off. The dentist will provide appropriate pain management instructions and may prescribe medication to alleviate any discomfort.
Following a tooth extraction, there are several tooth replacement options available, including dental implants, dental bridges, and removable dentures. The most suitable option for you will depend on various factors such as the location of the extracted tooth, the health of your surrounding teeth, and your specific needs and preferences. Your dentist will discuss these options with you and help you choose the best solution.
