Chipped or broken tooth

Did you know that chipped teeth can become even worse if they are not taken care of immediately?  A broken or chipped tooth should be assessed immediately to prevent situations like over-exposed nerves which can be very painful.  Dr. Youngquist will evaluate the tooth to help determine the best repair option.

If the broken or chipped tooth is sensitive to temperature or pressure, there is a chance that there could be bigger problems than just an embarrassing photo op. Call us today so we can assess your specific issue.

Emergency Dental Surgery

In some cases, dental surgery could be needed right away. Fortunately, for those near the American Fork, Highland, Lehi, and surround UT areas, Dr. Youngquist at Palisades Dental is highly-trained and prepared to handle any dental procedure. One of the most common emergency dental surgeries patients require is a tooth extraction. If your tooth or its root is unable to be repaired, this is usually what occurs.

Another very common procedure that patients need to have performed is wisdom tooth removal surgery. If your wisdom tooth erupts from your gum and is causing severe pain, you should call us immediately. Some signs that lead to you needing emergency wisdom teeth removal include:

  • Physical discomfort while chewing foods.
  • Trouble opening your mouth.
  • An ache in your jaw.
  • A bad taste that never leaves your mouth.

Young adults are among some of the most common to suffer from this dental problem and 95% of the time the issue is with the lower wisdom teeth. Getting regular X-rays can help to determine when wisdom teeth should be removed and what measures should be taken.
