Tooth pain

No matter the cause, we can treat it

Emergency Exam

When facing a dental emergency, immediate and accurate assessment is crucial for effective treatment. Our emergency exam process is designed to quickly identify the source of your pain and provide relief. Starting with a brief evaluation to understand your symptoms and medical history, we swiftly move to diagnostic measures. Our state-of-the-art digital X-ray technology plays a pivotal role, offering clear and precise imaging with minimal discomfort. This allows us to pinpoint issues promptly, from hidden tooth decay to impacted teeth, ensuring you receive the fastest and most appropriate care.

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays represent a significant advancement in dental diagnostic imaging, offering a faster, safer, and more convenient experience for patients. Utilizing minimal radiation compared to traditional film X-rays, they provide high-resolution images that are immediately available for review. This immediacy not only speeds up the diagnosis and treatment planning process but also allows for a more interactive patient experience. 

Emergency Exam

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a revolutionary imaging technology that offers three-dimensional (3D) visualization of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. Unlike traditional two-dimensional X-rays, CBCT provides detailed images that are essential for more complex diagnoses and treatment planning, such as implant placement, orthodontic assessments, and evaluation of jaw problems. 

Dental Infection

Advanced technology and methods to treat your dental infection

Root Canals

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure designed to remove infection from inside a tooth, preventing further decay and saving the tooth from extraction. The process involves carefully cleaning the canals inside a tooth’s root, disinfecting them, and then filling and sealing the tooth to protect it from future infection. This treatment can relieve pain and make your tooth healthy again.


Tooth extractions are performed when a tooth is too damaged or decayed to be saved. In emergency situations, immediate extraction might be necessary to alleviate severe pain or infection. The process involves removing the tooth from its socket in the bone, taking care to preserve as much of the surrounding bone and tissue as possible.

Dental Injuries

Accidents happen. We’re here for you.

Dental Trauma

Dental injuries resulting from traumatic accidents require immediate and precise attention to prevent long-term damage. Our approach to managing these emergencies leverages advanced diagnostic tools to assess the extent of injury accurately. Digital X-rays offer a quick and detailed view of the affected area, enabling us to identify fractures, dislocations, or any hidden damage swiftly.
