A lot of people come and say that they have pain or they're terribly uncomfortable. Again, wanting to make sure that we do our very best to identify what it is that's causing the pain to begin with, the most important thing is that we don't misdiagnose what is happening. Understanding of what it is that's causing the pain first, then allows us to proceed to identify what is the best course of action to take. It may be simply taking X-rays to identify that. It may be running multiple types of tests. As soon as we can discover the problem and the source of the pain and discomfort, then we can make the appropriate course of action recommendations for you.
If you experience a dental emergency after hours or on a weekend, your call is routed to a cell phone monitored by one of our doctors. If you need immediate attention, we’ll do our best to see you ASAP. And we’ll advise you on how to care for your tooth until we can treat you.
For quick pain relief, call Watterson Family Dentistry at 517-888-0021.
Technology Gives You a Treatment Edge
Accurate diagnoses are always important – but especially so if you are in pain. We’ve invested in high-tech tools that help us make diagnoses and also ensure your procedures are as quick and pain-free as possible.
For example, our Galileos 3D X-ray system gives us a comprehensive view of your teeth and underlying bone structure that helps us with numerous procedures including:
- Root canals
- Tooth Extractions
- Dental implant placement
In addition, the system emits far less radiation than traditional X-rays, so it’s safer for you and your family. And the high-resolution images are immediately available. No more waiting for the film to develop!
