At Tiger Family Dental, your Sedalia, MO emergency dentist is committed to your prompt recovery and pain cessation. Because of this, we treat every kind of dental emergency.

Of course, it’s not always easy to decide whether your situation is an emergency or whether it can wait a day or two. However, if you’re in pain, we always consider that a dental emergency.

Dental Emergencies in Sedalia, MO

A dental emergency can mean many things, but the most common ones we see include:

  • Toothache
  • Jaw pain
  • Swelling

In many cases, a toothache with jaw swelling and a bump on the gum means you have a root infection requiring immediate root canal therapy.

In our dental office, we provide gentle root canal treatment and always thoroughly numb the area where your dentist will be working. We then extract the infected pulp from your tooth to relieve your pain and prevent infection spread. Then we seal your tooth with a temporary filling until your next visit. At that time, we provide a permanent filling or dental crown to complete your root canal therapy.

Sometimes, you can also suffer tooth trauma or injury. In that case, your Sedalia, Mo dentist works fast to restore your comfort and save your tooth. However, if a tooth cannot be saved, talk to us about tooth replacement options.

If you’re unsure whether your situation is an emergency, always give us a call. We can help assess your symptoms and provide the best advice.
