Dental Emergencies

If you have a tooth that is causing you constant pain, it typically indicates an abscess or tooth infection. Unfortunately, this is not a condition that will resolve or go away on its own. Therefore, seeking treatment is vital to prevent the infection from spreading and impacting surrounding teeth or other parts of your body. 

If you or a loved one has a painful toothache that's a dental emergency in Phoenix, AZ, it's essential to contact your emergency dentist at Dental Care at Moon Valley so we can treat you promptly.

Our dentists will likely recommend root canal treatment to eliminate your tooth infection and preserve your tooth. However, leaving a tooth infection untreated can also result in tooth loss, so it's important not to wait to treat your condition.

After root canal treatment in Phoenix, our dentists will rebuild your tooth with a permanent dental filling or crown to ensure that you can eat and chew with ease as you did before your tooth infection.

Don't wait to call (602) 843-6000 if you or a loved one is experiencing tooth pain or any other dental emergency like a broken or knocked-out tooth. Dental Care at Moon Valley is here to help when you need us most.
