Dental Accidents & Facial Trauma
One major category of dental emergencies is when teeth are fractured, partially dislodged, or knocked free of the mouth altogether. These injuries tend to happen suddenly and without warning, causing bleeding, swelling, and intense discomfort. Thankfully, Dr. Hamel can provide effective pain relief as soon as possible and work with patients on the ideal restorative solution to preserve the injured tooth, such as an all-porcelain crown or mercury-free filling. Lasting tooth replacement options are available as well, although our team will always strive to preserve natural dental structure first.
Dental Emergencies Due to Oral Care Neglect
If you are experiencing an excessive amount of pressure, tenderness, or outright pain in a specific tooth, it’s likely that an advanced infection is present underneath the enamel and dentin. These “toothaches” occur because advanced decay or a significant injury can allow harmful bacteria to infiltrate the more vulnerable areas of teeth. Here at Biologic Dentistry, Dr. Hamel will do everything in his power to revitalize the tooth, remove the infected portions conservatively, and help it remain as a strong and stable part of your smile.
Unparalleled Experience & Qualifications
When searching for a trusted dentist in Marietta to handle your dental emergency situation, Dr. Hamel is the clear choice. He has been involved in the oral healthcare field since 1975, getting his start as a dental ceramicist before entering dental school. He has attended countless advanced training courses as well beyond his general education, including time spent at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute. His knowledge of restorative and cosmetic dentistry is second-to-none, and his holistic focus will help you maintain a high quality of life and overall wellbeing too.
While our number one goal is to help our patients preserve their natural teeth for as long as possible, sometimes, the best thing we can do for their oral/overall health is remove one. We typically choose to extract a tooth if:
- It is too damaged or decayed to be repaired
- Gum disease has weakened the bone supporting it. It refuses to fall out/is blocking an erupting adult tooth (primary teeth only)
- Room needs to be created for a denture/upcoming orthodontic treatment
- It has become painful, impacted (stuck), or infected (which is usually the case with the wisdom teeth)
