Lost Fillings

Lost fillings can expose your teeth to further decay and sensitivity, and should be addressed quickly to prevent additional damage. They often occur due to wear and tear or underlying tooth decay, highlighting the need for immediate dental attention. Restoring lost fillings promptly ensures the integrity of the tooth structure is maintained and helps avoid more complex dental procedures in the future.

Broken Teeth

Broken teeth not only affect your smile’s appearance but can also lead to pain, sensitivity, and further oral health complications if left untreated. They often result from trauma, biting down on hard substances, or decay, and require prompt dental attention to repair. Addressing broken teeth quickly can prevent infection and more extensive dental work, preserving your oral health and comfort.

Lost Crowns

Lost crowns expose the underlying tooth to potential damage and decay, making timely dental care crucial to protect the tooth’s integrity. This dental issue often arises from weakened adhesive or underlying tooth decay and should be addressed immediately to avoid further complications. Replacing a lost crown promptly helps maintain oral function and prevents discomfort or sensitivity in the affected tooth.


Dental abscesses, characterized by painful, swollen pockets of infection around teeth or gums, require urgent treatment to prevent spread of the infection. Neglecting an abscess can lead to serious health complications, as the infection may spread to other parts of the body. Timely professional care for abscesses is crucial, typically involving antibiotics and possibly drainage, to alleviate pain and treat the infection effectively.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth issues, such as impaction or misalignment, can cause discomfort, crowding, and even infection, necessitating careful monitoring and sometimes removal. Delaying treatment for problematic wisdom teeth can lead to more complex dental issues, including damage to adjacent teeth and jaw pain. It’s important to consult with a dentist for appropriate management or extraction of wisdom teeth to maintain overall oral health and comfort.

Root Canals

Root canal treatment is crucial for saving a tooth that has been severely damaged or infected, often relieving intense pain and preventing tooth loss. Delaying a root canal can lead to the spread of infection and more serious health complications, making timely treatment essential. This procedure involves removing the damaged or infected pulp, cleaning the inner part of the tooth, and sealing it to restore its function and health.
