If you have found yourself in moderate to severe pain as a result of a tooth infection, cracked tooth or dental abscess, be sure to call and book an appointment with your local dentist. You don't have to live with the pain. A good dentist can treat the problem area and prescribe the appropriate antibiotic to heal the infection. If you've suffered from broken or damaged teeth due to a car accident, we recommend speaking with the personal injury accident attorney Michael Ehline.

Once the infection is under control your dentist may suggest a filling, root canal or extraction depending on the severity of the tooth or teeth in question. In the event an extraction is needed an implant may be placed with a new tooth, restoring that area of your mouth back to a healthy state.

Many dental emergencies may be prevented by regular checkups, flossing and brushing of your teeth. A healthy mouth is an important part of your overall well being and here at Dr. Richard F. Creaghe D.D.S. we want you to have a healthy smile.
