Something many people don’t understand about dentistry is that by the time a patient experiences pain, the problem has probably already progressed significantly. Issues such as cavities take a long time to become truly painful. That means that if you “wait for a problem” to come in for a check-up, you are essentially allowing problems to reach their most damaging, expensive stage!
We’ve all been there at one point or another. Someone trips on the edge of the pool, falls while sprinting across the driveway, or gets hit in the face during a sports practice—and suddenly, someone is missing a tooth. When that happens, make sure to call Salisbury Friendly Dentistry as quickly as possible. Our Salisbury NC emergency dentist office is here to help, any time of day or night.
Cavities are very common. In fact, you might be surprised to learn that some of our own dental staff members have had cavities! The good news is that cavities are also preventable. Brushing and flossing twice a day, avoiding sugary sodas, and scheduling regular dental check-ups should help stop cavities before they start.
We’ve all seen the popular cartoon gaffe wherein an elderly person’s teeth fall into their food, or pop out when they laugh or shout. While these depictions are fine for jokes on T.V., they tend to mislead the public about what modern dentures are and can do. The truth is that today’s dentures are much more discreet and much more stable than those that existed in the past.
When a tooth is causing you pain, we will do everything in our power to save it, whether via a crown or other dental procedure. However, if the nerve of your tooth is infected, or if you are still experiencing pain after another dental treatment, you may need a root canal. While no one wants to get a root canal treatment, it is sometimes the only way to eliminate your infection and stop your pain. Learn more about our root canal treatment procedure below.
As dental professionals, our first priority will always be to help restore, save and repair your natural teeth. However, sometimes a tooth extraction is unavoidable. If it is the case that a tooth cannot be saved, we will do everything in our power to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
