Not all Emergency Dentists in Cleveland are the Same
At Ridge Road Family Dentistry, we handle dental emergencies promptly without causing unnecessary delays for our patients. Not all dental clinics are equipped to handle same-day emergencies. At other dental offices, patients are given painkillers and asked to book an appointment. Dental emergencies occur more often than people realize. Therefore, our office is equipped to handle several types of dental emergencies on the same day. With two experienced dentists and four state of the art treatment rooms, we can perform root canal, complicated extraction, simple filling, denture repair and dental infection procedures. Our experienced staff will help you with insurance paperwork and review your medical history in an easy and simple way to make your visit as pleasant as possible.

Do you have a tooth in pain? Or one that is cracked or damaged? If the tooth cannot be repaired with a filling or crown, then a tooth extraction may be required. Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. Your comfort is our primary goal. We do both simple extractions as well as surgical extractions of badly decayed teeth or impacted teeth.

Same-day cosmetic fixes
Though quick cosmetic fixes do not fit into the emergency category, some of our patients come in for last-minute fixes to their smile. Sometimes it is for an important public event they have to attend or to prepare for a personal event, such as a wedding. We perform various emergency cosmetic treatments such as tooth bonding and temporary crowns on the same day.
Emergency Root Canals
What is a Root Canal?
Root canals are the cavities that exist inside the walls of a tooth. When there is tooth decay, the pulp may be in danger of permanent damage. In these situations, a root canal treatment may be required to save the tooth before it decays further and is irreparably damaged. During a root canal procedure, the pulp is cleaned and the pulp cavity is filled in order to prevent an infection from developing in the tooth. This procedure should quickly relieve your toothaches and stop any infection from progressing.
These are some common symptoms that indicate you might need a root canal treatment:
- Tender gums which might also be swollen
- Extreme sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures
- Discoloration of the tooth
- Severe toothache
If you have any questions regarding root canal treatments, call us today.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction
In our late teens or early twenties, our third molars, commonly known as our wisdom teeth, begin to come in. In many cases, the jaw is simply not large enough to accommodate the extra teeth, and they become impacted, meaning they remain under the gum.
Once impacted, wisdom teeth can cause complications including infection, crowding, damage to other teeth, cysts that permanently damage the jaw and other complications. There are cases as well where the wisdom teeth penetrate through the gums, possibly at an awkward angle, also necessitating wisdom tooth extraction. While it is difficult to predict whether your impacted teeth will cause such damage, it is highly likely complications will arise.
The extraction of wisdom teeth is a common procedure performed under local anesthesia. Barring any complications, the tooth can be easily removed in one piece. After surgery, patients can expect varying levels of swelling and discomfort. However, we do everything possible to minimize pain and recovery time.
