What Is Your Dental Emergency?
Here are some common dental emergencies and how we might treat them.
- Knocked-out tooth. We will do our best to keep the tooth. If you get to us within 30 minutes, we may be able to save it. If not, we can replace it with a dental bridge. Or we can use a dental implant.
- Cracked or broken tooth. Our dentists may use a dental veneer or a dental crown to fix your tooth.
- Toothache. If infected pulp inside your tooth is causing your toothache, our Rochester, MN dentists will clean and disinfect your tooth during a root canal procedure, then seal it to protect it from further dental damage.
