Emergency Dental Treatment
We offer same day emergency visits for toothaches and emergency dental treatment needs. Whether it is a broken tooth, swelling, severe pain, lost or broken filling, or just a crown that came off, we are happy to get you in fast, and get you on the road to comfortable dentistry. Don’t put off something you know is wrong! It will only get worse and cause you even more pain in the future.
We offer at home teeth whitening with the use of custom trays. At home whitening takes on average 10-14 days and costs only $49!
Fillings are used to restore teeth with “cavities” or small chips. Most fillings are tooth colored or sometimes called “white fillings,” “porcelain fillings,” or “bondings.” “Silver fillings,” “black fillings,” or “amalgams fillings” are not placed at Kaysville Dental due to the mercury in the fillings as well as the large number of tooth fractures associated with metal fillings.
Preventive dentistry is the keystone of modern dental practice. It is much easier to prevent gum disease with routine dental hygiene visits, or “cleanings” than to treat it with gum surgery! Dr. Hoeft is an expert at providing thorough and gentle teeth cleanings.
When too much of a tooth is missing due to cavities, old fillings or fracture, a crown may then be required to restore the tooth. Most crowns are tooth colored or porcelain, but they can also be made of gold or zirconia if a different look or additional strength is desired.
When a tooth is missing, it can be replaced with a bridge if there is a tooth on each side of the missing tooth.
Implants, like a bridge, are also used to replace missing teeth. Unlike a bridge, an implant does not attach to teeth on either side.
All but the most difficult extractions can be handled at our office. Simple, surgical and impacted teeth can be removed with local anesthetic and nitrous oxide (happy gas) if needed.
When the nerve inside a tooth dies, or abscesses, root canal (endodontic) treatment is the only way to save the tooth. Unlike the bad reputation given to root canals, most are painless and uneventful.
