Feel Better Soon With Our Expert Emergency Care

With over 30 years in practice, Dr. John Miller has plenty of experience in dealing with dental emergencies. With our full range of dental services, from general dentistry to oral surgery, we rarely have a need to send you to an outside specialist.

Here is how we handle some common dental emergencies:

  • Broken Tooth – We can often repair a broken tooth with a dental crown. If there is not enough tooth left to save, we can gently extract it. Our tooth replacement options include dental bridges and dental implants.
  • Toothache – If your toothache is due to a cavity, we’ll remove the decay and place a tooth-colored filling to protect your tooth from further damage. If decay has gotten into the center of your tooth, we’ll clean it out with a root canal treatment.

Even if you normally feel calm and collected at the dentist, an emergency can bring out your dental anxiety. Fortunately, our experienced team knows how to relax you with amenities including:

  • Cozy blankets to take away the chill
  • Pillows for head and neck comfort
  • TVs and headphones to help you relax

If you’re still feeling nervous, we also offer dental sedation.
