At your emergency dental visit, Dr. McMurtry will review your medical and dental history. He will next perform an emergency dental exam of your specific problem. Based on his clinical findings, he will then get a radiograph of that area to help visualize the problem area. Depending on the situation, different radiographs might be requested. This will help direct the appropriate care for you.
A bitewing xray is used to look for cavities between your teeth
A periapical xray is used to look at the whole tooth, so that the ends of the roots may also be evaluated.
A panoramic film (panorex) will be taken should a tooth need to be extracted. A panorex is also useful in evaluating impacted wisdom teeth (above left) or a severe infection in the lower jaww (above right).
Based upon the diagnosis of the problem or problem areas, Dr. McMurtry will discuss with you the various different treatment options and take excellent care of you.
