What to Do
If you experience any tooth pain or unusual sensitivity, or you notice severe discoloration (dead tooth), a crack, in one or more teeth or a chip in one or more teeth, contact Palmieri Dentistry right away for a dental exam. It is important not to delay, as dental issues do not heal on their own.
Dr. Palmieri will need to examine your mouth to find out what is causing the problem and how extensive it is. He will prescribe the right treatment to relieve your symptoms, restore your oral health, and prevent possible further complications. You will also receive instructions for a quick and comfortable recovery.
What to Expect
Most restorative dental treatments are relatively painless thanks to modern techniques and innovative tools, all of which Dr. Palmieri regularly uses. He frequently administers anesthesia to keep you from feeling any pain during treatment and has worked hard to create a warm, spa-like environment in the office for your comfort.
