Do you do wisdom teeth and root canals?

As experienced emergency dentists in Northeast Philadelphia, Dr. Schriftman and Dr. Eckley routinely perform wisdom teeth extractions and root canals. In fact, we are able to treat any dental emergency you face and provide the urgent pain relief you need. Because we want you to be comfortable, we offer nitrous oxide or laughing gas with no additional charge.

In the case of wisdom teeth or third molars, if they’re causing problems, it’s best to remove them. Our ancient ancestors needed the chewing power of a third set of molars, but we don’t. And since they’re so far back in your mouth, wisdom teeth are difficult to clean. This puts you at risk for gum disease and cavities, so our dentists usually recommend removing wisdom teeth.

As for root canals, The Philadelphia Dentist knows that the pain of an infected or abscessed tooth can be so excruciating that you can’t function. We’ll make it a priority to relieve your pain first. Once we numb your tooth with a local anesthetic, you’ll experience immediate relief. Dr. Schriftman and Dr. Eckley will perform a root canal to clear away the infection, which is what’s causing the pain in the first place.

If you have a toothache or infected tooth, call us at (215) 342-7718 to schedule a same-day emergency appointment at our Northeast Philadelphia dental office. You can rely on our experienced dentists to provide immediate relief and a long-term solution to your problem.
