Do you have a toothache that requires urgent treatment? North York Dental Clinic offers the following emergency procedures:
Toothache Pain Relief. Toothache is defined as pain around the teeth or jaws. Toothaches can be caused by a variety of factors, including cavities, gum disease, cracked or broken teeth, exposed roots, chewing muscle spasms and jaw joint disease. A thorough examination that includes x-rays can help determine the cause.
Abscess Treatment. An abscess is a collection of pus that has accumulated in response to bacteria, parasites or other foreign materials. It is a defensive reaction of the body to prevent the spread of infection. Abscess treatment typically involves draining the pus and prescribing antibiotics.
Emergency Extractions. A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. If tooth decay has destroyed so much tooth structure as to prevent restoration, then an extraction may be required. Extractions may also be done to remove impacted wisdom teeth or for aesthetic reasons.
Emergency Root Canal Treatment. Root canal treatment refers to the cleaning out of the infected pulp of a heavily decayed tooth and the replacement of the pulp with a material that seals the tooth so the infection cannot get back in. Root canal treatment is done in order to cure the infection and save the tooth.
