Emergency Tooth Extraction- Melbourne, FL
The patient presented for an emergency appointment for a broken tooth. He arrived in "excruciating pain" and was unable to eat or sleep. The tooth had broken off at the gumline and a digital radiograph revealed that an infection was present. Due to the active infection and condition of the remaining tooth structure, Dr. Patel diagnosed it as unrestorable and recommended an extraction. He was able to remove the tooth the same day and prescribed antibiotics to help clear any remaining infection. The patient's healing was monitored at a follow up appointment and he was able to resume his normal hygiene maintenance.More
