Common Dental Emergencies

Toothaches are most often caused by deep tooth decay that enters the pulp of the tooth, causing an infection. This type of emergency might require root canal therapy or an emergency tooth extraction. If needed, we can provide you with a beautiful ‘Custom Crown‘ after the work has been completed.

Other possible causes of a dental emergency:

  • Sometimes it’s a gum infection. A periodontal abscess can cause a toothache.
  • When a wisdom tooth becomes infected, it’s usually an infection of the gums around the tooth.
  • A cracked tooth can also cause a toothache. A crack can lead to an infection of the pulp, just as deep decay can.
Preventing a Dental Emergency

The best treatment for a dental emergency is prevention. At Creve Coeur Dental our exceptional team of oral health care professionals provide thorough examinations, employ informative image capture technology, and utilize digital x-rays to detect problems before they become painful. Even though people are diligent about caring for their teeth, they can still develop a toothache, and we’re here to help alleviate your pain and restore your healthy dental routine.

Did you know that dental anxiety is an indirect cause of toothaches? A traumatic experience at the dentist can cause people to avoid dental care. At Creve Coeur Dental, we make every effort to keep you comfortable, without pain or trauma. Our sedation dentistry can make your dental care comfortable. Most people don’t even remember their treatment. At Creve Coeur Dental you’ll experience pain-free dental care, which will encourage you to come back and visit us for regular dental check-ups and preventative dental care.

Toothache Treatment

If your toothache is from an infected pulp, the treatment is usually a root canal. People have heard scary stories about root canal treatment, but with many of the modern techniques at Creve Coeur Dental, it can be made comfortable and painless.

Other types of abscesses might require other treatments and antibiotics to relieve your pain. But whatever the treatment that Dr. Rosinski recommends, we’ll discuss your options and the costs beforehand. We’ll make you feel good again while respecting you and your financial situation!

Emergency Tooth Extraction
The Emergency Tooth Extraction Procedure

As much as we would like to avoid it, tooth extraction is a common and often medically necessary procedure. At our West County Creve Coeur Dental practice, we make the procedure as comfortable and relaxing as possible, so there are no surprises. With minimal disruption to your busy life, marginal discomfort, and reduced downtime, you’ll be glad you came to Creve Coeur Dental.

Emergency tooth extraction, including wisdom teeth, is either done under general anesthesia or local anesthesia or combined with a sedative. The surgery treats the pain and gum infection that can originate with the growth of the wisdom teeth. It also prevents the results of orthodontic treatment from being compromised.

When Should You Get Teeth Extracted

Even if you or your child’s teeth have not yet caused problems, it’s possible that some of your teeth will negatively affect dental health sometime in the future if no intervention is taken. Dentists recommend that impacted teeth be removed when the teeth are causing problems.

Tooth extraction at our West County Creve Coeur practice is a safe procedure that will prevent many future problems and keep your smile healthy and beautiful. Not all teeth require extraction, and Dr. Rosinski would never recommend an unnecessary procedure. If you’re not sure about the best option for your teeth, please schedule an appointment today 314-569-3141.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is necessary when a tooth’s root chamber becomes infected by decay. Extensive tooth decay or an injury can cause serious damage and infection to the nerves and vessels in the dental pulp, making root canal therapy necessary to save the tooth.

The Root Canal Procedure

During the root canal procedure, Dr. Rosinski cleans out the infected pulp chamber inside your tooth and repairs the damage to relieve pain and clear the infection. Following root canal therapy, Dr. Rosinski restores the form and function of treated teeth with all-porcelain crowns.

Porcelain crowns are durable, long-lasting, and provide a superior aesthetic result.

Comfortable Root Canal Therapy

At our West County Creve Coeur area practice, we offer sedation dentistry as a way to keep your dental visit painless and stress-free. Our office also offers soothing amenities such as in-room television monitors to watch your favorite programs or easy listening to music to help you feel relaxed and at home.

If you need root canal therapy, don’t wait. Please contact our Creve Coeur Dental practice today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Humaira Rosinski.

Do You Need Root Canal Therapy?

Severe tooth decay, as well as injury that has caused infection in the bone, can create the need for root canal therapy. If you have experienced the following symptoms, you might need root canal therapy:

  • Sensitivity to hot or cold foods
  • Spontaneous pain or throbbing with or without biting

Newer dental techniques and equipment can alleviate the long wait for a permanent crown to be ready. With an exciting new procedure, crown replacement is done gently and quickly. We use computer-aided design (CAD) technology that allows patients to have their crown or caps custom shaped and fabricated. No more waiting weeks for lab work. With Creve Coeur Dental, it’s all so easy on your schedule and incredibly convenient and fast!

All of our restorations are very natural looking since they are made of tooth-colored ceramic material. Our ceramic material is compatible with tissue in your mouth and is anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. It allows our team to be extremely precise and to save more of the healthy part of your tooth.
