Dental Emergencies can and will happen. We are equipped to handle the majority of dental emergencies here in our office.
A small cavity, left untreated, can grow to destroy an entire tooth. Unlike our skin, teeth don’t heal naturally. Only professional dental care can fill your cavities and return your teeth to optimal oral health.
How we can help: Dr. Draiss will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and place a filling to restore the tooth. We offer tooth colored fillings at Chelsea Comprehensive Dental to restore cavities in teeth.
A dental crown covers a structurally damaged tooth to restore integrity. Deep cavities, chips or cracks may require a crown. Dr. Draiss offers porcelain crowns to repair and enhance esthetics of damaged teeth.
How we can help: You should expect two office visits for a crown procedure. At the first appointment, Dr. Draiss will prepare the damaged tooth, make an impression and place a temporary crown. Our dental lab will then fabricate a custom crown and at your follow-up visit, the temporary crown will be removed and the permanent crown cemented.
In many cases, performing a root canal can alleviate tooth pain and infection. Performing a root canal allows the patient to save the tooth instead of having to have an extraction. A root canal can eliminate pain in the tooth by removing the infected or inflamed nerve of the tooth.
How we can help: Dr. Draiss can perform the majority of root canals in our office. He will place a crown on the tooth following root canal treatment to restore the tooth to full function.
In some cases, teeth simply cannot be saved and need to be extracted in order to alleviate pain or infection.
How we can help: We can handle the majority of extractions in our dental office.
