Abscess Treatment
An abscess or swelling is caused by an infection in the tooth or gum. An abscess can have a serious affect on your general health as well as the health of the adjoining teeth or tissues and will not go away by itself. More...

Porcelain Repair / Temporary Crown Repair or Replacement
When porcelain on an existing crown chips, we can sometimes restore it using bonding techniques. In some cases, we may need to replace the crown. More…

Emergency Extractions
When there is no hope of saving a tooth or when you choose to not save a painful tooth, then extraction makes sense.  Some teeth can be removed without consideration for future replacement, eg. wisdom teeth... but if future replacement is important, then Dr. Bloom will discuss your options with you.  More…

Sports Injuries
Sports injuries  to the teeth are all too common. In order to safeguard against potentially serious and painful injuries, certain precautions, such as custom mouthguards,  should be taken. If the jaw or teeth sustain an injury, notify us immediately, or go to the hospital emergency room if necessary.

Toothache Pain Relief
A common dental problem is a toothache. Cavities do not cause pain until they have progressed to the point of infecting the nerve. Toothaches require immediate attention for this reason, even if the aches come and go. More…
