What to Expect at Your Emergency Dentistry Appointment

During your emergency appointment at our office, you can expect to receive a comprehensive examination and diagnosis of your problem. Our dentists will take X-rays and examine your teeth and gums to determine the root cause of your dental emergency.

Once a diagnosis is made, one of our dentists will talk to you about the best course of treatment and explain your options. Based on the severity of your problem, your dentist may recommend one or more treatment options, such as a dental filling, a root canal, a crown, or an extraction.

The dentist will address any concerns or questions you may have about your condition and explain the potential risks associated with each treatment.

What to Expect

The Orthodontic Care Process

With orthodontic care, it is important to take dental impressions and x-rays to efficiently determine what type of treatment you will need. After placing the braces or starting your aligners, follow up appointments and maintenance are the most essential part of orthodontic care. We will go over a treatment plan with you and schedule any appointments so you can remain diligent about keeping a healthy smile.
