Emergency Tooth Extraction in Philadelphia (Tooth Removal)
Our first priority is always to help restore, repair and save your natural teeth, but there are some cases where tooth removal is unavoidable. In these cases, removal and tooth replacement may be the best way to protect your healthy teeth and improve your overall dental health. These emergency instances may include:
- Extensive decay
- Severe Periodontal (Gum) disease
- A Broken Tooth to the level that it can’t be restored
If your tooth has suffered severe decay, disease or trauma, emergency tooth extraction in Philadelphia and tooth replacement may be the necessary treatment to alleviate your pain and prevent the spreading of any infection.
Affordable Full Dental Implants in Philly – Tooth Implants
Dental implants are one of the best ways to preserve a natural looking smile., Tooth implants are used to support the restoration of a lost tooth and stop or prevent any jaw bone damage. Implants usually take place over a few scheduled appointments and will eventually merge with the jaw bone, serving as the first step to tooth replacement.
Due to the fact that they connect directly to bone, dental implants are able to offer a certain level of stability. This also allows your teeth feel amazingly natural and comfortable. Our Philadelphia office works hard to ensure that they provide dental implants that allow you to feel confident in your new smile!
