Frequently Asked Questions

We answer your dental health questions!

I have a toothache that won’t go away. What should I do?

Check that there’s nothing stuck between your teeth, and then call us. A persistent toothache could be a sign of a tooth infection, which means that you need to act quickly to save the tooth. Dr. Steele can thoroughly examine the area and decide if you need a root canal to treat the problem. A root canal involves going into the tooth to clear out the bacteria causing the pain, filling the tooth with a natural-looking resin, and possible capping the tooth with a dental crown to prevent the germs from reentering. Call us immediately to find out if you need a root canal.

Do you see emergency dental patients?

Yes! We see existing patients during normal office hours for emergency dental cases. Call Arrowhead Foothills Dentistry immediately after the dental accident and keep any parts of the tooth or dental restoration that may have fallen out. We may be able to use them to fix your tooth. If not, we can use CEREC same-day crowns to revitalize your smile.
