Have you chipped or cracked a tooth? Sudden trauma to the mouth, such as from sports or an accident, can severely damage a tooth, leading to pain, difficulty chewing or speaking, and more serious problems if left untreated. Our dentists take injury to a tooth very seriously and strive to help you keep as much of your tooth as possible when considering the best possible repair options. Common dental treatments that can repair a damaged tooth include fillings, bonding, crowns, dental implants, and porcelain veneers.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy, or endodontic therapy, becomes necessary when a tooth is decayed down to the root. This leads to inflammation or infection of the pulp that can become a much larger problem if not cared for promptly. Root canals ultimately help save your tooth structure by removing the infected pulp and disinfecting the inside of the tooth. A filling material is then inserted into the space where the pulp once was, and a filling or crown is placed to restore the full shape and function of the tooth.

Our dentists always strive to restore your natural tooth and prevent the need for an extraction. However, in some cases, a tooth may need to be removed if it has come loose, gotten infected, or become so damaged it cannot support a crown or other restoration. If a tooth does need to be extracted, our team will help you find the most beneficial tooth replacement option for your needs and lifestyle. From bridges and dentures to dental implants and implant dentures, our goal is to help you obtain the most natural tooth appearance and function.
Dental emergencies can happen to anyone and at any time. We do our best to accommodate these situations, making every effort to get patients into our office as soon as possible. If you have lost a filling or crown, experienced an oral injury, or need urgent dental care in some other way, please contact Kois Dentistry. A member of our staff will help you find the earliest possible appointment time for you to receive prompt treatment.
