If a tooth is decayed or damaged beyond repair, you may need a tooth extraction, which involves removing the tooth completely from its socket. This could be any of your teeth including a molar or an impacted wisdom tooth.
Tooth extractions will involve an initial consult with one of our dentists, who will determine if the tooth can be repaired without being extracted. Tooth extractions can either be a simple extraction or a surgical one, depending on the case.
Surgery is required in cases where part of the bone or tooth has to be incised for the extraction. Recovering from a tooth surgery may take 1 to 2 weeks.
Following the procedure, your dentist will tell you how to take care of the extracted area of your mouth and the recovery process.
The thought of wisdom tooth extraction is sufficient to upset general population, due to lot of general misconceptions which are baseless. On the contrary, wisdom tooth extraction is just like any other tooth extraction process and can be carried out by either an experienced dentist or a specialist oral and maxillo-facial surgeon.

If you have pain in your teeth, you may have a tooth cavity and need a filling.
If you have a partial tooth decay, the affected part of the tooth is drilled into, to completely remove the decayed section of the tooth. The removed tooth part is then replaced with what is known as a filling.
Fillings are available in many different types, but the most common type is composite resin, which is white in colour. This comes in many shades, and a shade that matches your teeth will be chosen to achieve the most natural looking finish. Other types of fillings are also available at our clinic. You can discuss this with the dentist during your consultation.
Fillings also provide protection to the tooth to prevent further cavities from forming. They improve tooth strength, which is useful for biting and chewing, and overall dental health.
Fillings for Tooth Cavities
If your missing tooth is causing you discomfort, or you feel conscious about how it looks, dental implants could be the solution for you.
Dental implants are a replacement for the root section of a missing tooth. The implant is placed into the jaw bone in place of the tooth, after which an artificial tooth known as a crown is attached to the implant.
Dental implants provide comfort, improved speech, a good appearance and protection in place of the missing tooth.
Dental implants are usually made of titanium alloy, which are extremely safe and used in various other implant types.
The implant is first placed in the root, and once it heals, the crown is then attached to it. This can take up to a few months.
When a tooth is severely infected or injured all the way to the soft tissue at the bottom of the tooth’s root, it is likely that a root canal may be needed. If not treated promptly, the infected tooth can cause severe pain or an abscess.
Root canal treatments remove the infection entirely from the decayed tooth, all the way to the tissue. This is done by removing the decayed sections of the tooth.
Root Canals, once completed, are followed with restorative treatments such as fillings, or crowns.
Fillings and crowns seal the tooth and protect it from forming infections in the future. They also help with the appearance of the tooth, so you are not left with just a part of your tooth.
Crowns and bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. These restorative treatments can help with chewing, speaking, and improve the appearance of your teeth.
When teeth need large fillings, or have undergone root treatments where a section of the tooth is removed, a crown (which looks like a tooth) is used as a replacement to provide protection, and a natural appearance.
Crowns are generally made of porcelain and are matched to the colour of your teeth to give you a natural looking smile.
In case of two or more missing teeth, a bridge can be used to cover the gap using the neighbouring teeth as support.
Restorative Dental Treatments with Crowns and Bridges

Dentures are a set of artificial teeth that are fitted into an acrylic base which look like your gums. There are used as a replacement for actual teeth when someone has had some or all of their teeth removed.
At Hamilton Emergency Dental Centre, we can construct partial dentures or complete upper and lower dentures. We also offer immediate dentures, that are constructed prior to the teeth removal, so you can transition into your dentures right after your procedure is done on the same day, without having to undergo a waiting period.
If your dentures are broken or don’t fit you properly anymore, our dentists can help you with fixing your dentures as well.

What Kinds of Patients Undergo Full Mouth Reconstructions?
There is no limit to the type of patient that we see seeking full mouth reconstruction in St. Louis, whether it is for the function of the mouth or the overall aesthetics of the mouth. Most of these patients have severe dental problems throughout their mouths, which require comprehensive treatment to bring their mouths to a final and positive result.
Many of these patients who seek out full mouth reconstruction have numerous teeth with large fillings, decaying teeth, cracked or broken teeth, missing teeth, or teeth that are worn down due to bruxism.
On the other hand, there are patients with certain conditions, such as Ameliogenesis, Ectodermal Dysplasia, or Dentinogenesis Imperfecta, who require extensive restoration treatments to improve the overall health and function of their teeth. These are patients who we deem prime candidates for full mouth reconstruction.
What Does Treatment Look Like For Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction, otherwise known as full mouth rehabilitation, is any general extensive dental treatment that is set to affect all of the teeth within the mouth. The type of treatment depends on the patient and what we deem is necessary to get to the final product they seek.
For example, we have many patients with oral cancer who require specialized full mouth reconstruction. In this case, we might have to restore the missing structures within the oral cavity alongside the replacement of missing or broken teeth.
From crowns to onlays to veneers to bridges to dental implants to dentures and beyond, treatments can greatly vary when the ultimate goal is a complete smile makeover. For certain patients, we may even seek out applying orthodontics to facilitate the most positive end result.
Not only are our treatments geared to leave you with an improved look, but also geared to leave you with better jaw efficiency overall.
Full Mouth Rehabilitation
For some children and adults, a dental procedure can be very stressful, and they may find it difficult to relax during the procedure - which is why a patient can opt-in for conscious sedation if they are feeling anxious.
Hamilton Emergency Dental provides IV or intravenous sedation, oral sedation, N2O (Nitrous Oxide) and O2 sedations, which are all tried and tested methods of dental sedations used to make a patient feel relaxed and comfortable through any type of procedure.
If you are keen to opt-in for sedation, one of our dentists can recommend a sedation type taking your preference into consideration. This is done prior to the procedure.
Conscious Sedation Options
