Prompt Care for Dental Emergencies in the Honolulu, HI Area
Dr. Yoo knows that dental emergencies can be unexpected and painful. That’s why he offers same-day care when you or a family member is suffering from dental pain, trauma or an infection. Dr. Yoo and his staff at Aina Haina Family Dental will see you as soon as possible and work to resolve your problem – and your pain.
We treat a wide variety of urgent dental issues including:
- Dental trauma (knocked out tooth or chipped teeth)
- Dental infections
- Oral bleeding
- And many other problems
Dr. Yoo also provides expert oral surgery when you need a tooth extraction. An extraction – or pulling a tooth – is sometimes necessary in cases of severe trauma, infection or a hopeless restorable prognosis. We strive to create a comfortable environment, especially during these uneasy situations. Ask us about our many tooth replacement options including bridges and dental implants.
Root Canal Therapy
A root canal therapy may be required if you have an infected tooth often due to large decay that communicates into the pulp or from trauma. Contrary to what many believe, a root canal therapy doesn’t have to be painful. In fact, we go to great lengths to make the procedure as pain-free and as quick as possible. A root canal therapy can actually relieve the pain from a dental infection and allows our patients to save a tooth instead of losing it to an extraction.
This treatment involves the removal of the infected pulp and contents in a tooth.
After the root canal therapy is completed, a crown is often recommended to protect the tooth from further deterioration and prevent any bacterial leakage.
