People find themselves in need of emergency extractions for any number of causes. Many people who have extreme tooth decay will find themselves past the point of getting a simple filling. The rotted tooth may need to be extracted. Other reasons for an extraction include severe trauma to the tooth, overcrowded teeth, tooth infection, a compromised immune system, gum disease, and problematic wisdom teeth. Many of these underlying causes can be accompanied by pain and extreme discomfort, not to mention scary complications throughout the rest of the body. Schedule your extraction at your Yonge Eglinton dentist today!
Another common form of emergency dentistry that we often see in our Toronto dental office is the root canal or endodontic procedure. When the pulp of a tooth is infected, your dentist will need to remedy your situation with a procedure of this nature. Your dental provider will drill down to the infected portion of the pulp, remove it, sanitize and disinfect the hole, and fill it with tooth composite. Though many people don’t enjoy root canals or endodontic procedures, they often feel so much better after the infection is removed from their tooth. Need a root canal? Contact your local dentist at the corner of Yonge and Eglinton today!
When gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, has been allowed to worsen, it turns into periodontal disease. This condition is particularly dangerous because not only can it cause extremely painful, frustrating, and expensive problems in the mouth, gum disease can also lead to health problems throughout the body. Additionally, when gum disease has turned into periodontal disease, those affected are at risk of losing one or more teeth because infected gums tend to loosen teeth. Do you think that you might be dealing with gum disease? Contact your Toronto dentist today!
The need for a filling could become a dental emergency when it starts to cause significant pain and discomfort in your mouth.

We all need a filling every now and then so when you find yourself seeing cavities and tooth decay in your mouth, don’t wait for it to become infected; call your Yonge and Eglinton dentist today!
