If you are in pain, the first thing that we would want to do is take care of the pain. We, again, might need to take an x ray, we'll definitely do an oral exam, figure out what is the primary cause of that, to get you out of pain. Then we can look at other issues and then deal with other issues that are going out in your mouth, but the primary purpose would be to get you out of pain.
No one wants to deal with toothaches, sore jaws, or any oral pain like that. But many people think they have to deal with the pain. Maybe you think it will go away on its own (it won’t) or that it’s not a big deal (it is). That might have made sense decades ago, when dentistry was still using now-obsolete technology. Today’s dentistry is much different, and with all the state-of-the-art tools and holistic dental approach at Hillcrest Family Dentistry, there’s no need to suffer anymore. Whether you have a dental emergency or need a tooth removed and replaced, we can help end the pain and give you back a reason to smile.
We often can see you for your emergency the same day you call. If you call outside of our normal hours, our message will give you a phone number to call for immediate assistance.
Sometimes, a tooth is so damaged from an accident or lack of care that it needs to come out. That certainly doesn’t sound good, but what’s worse is letting that tooth stay. Chances are, it will get infected and cause even more pain. It can even help make the nearby teeth suffer from decay and gum disease. At our Medford, OR dental office, we can extract the damaged tooth before it can cause more problems, and use sedation to make the procedure easy to tolerate.
That empty space in your smile needs to be filled, and not just so you can keep your winning smile intact. Bits of food collect near the teeth on either side of a gap, increasing the chance of tooth decay or gum disease. The bone under the gap can also start to deteriorate with no tooth root there. There’s no reason to suffer from an ugly smile or possible health problems when Dr. Vareldzis can use a dental bridge or dental implant to replace the missing tooth.
If you’re suffering from pain right now, you don’t even want to think about a painful dental procedure. That’s why we offer local anesthetic, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and oral sedation to make your next appointment a breeze. With our sedation dentistry, every appointment can be easy.
Don’t let pain and discomfort ruin your mood any longer. Thanks to our modern training and technology, we can help alleviate your pain. If you have any questions, or if you want to schedule an appointment to remove that pain, call us today at 541-779-4196 or 541-773-4435 or use our online form.
