This may require a:
- Referral to oral surgery
- Consultation from pathology, periodontal, endodontic, restorative, prosthetics, and radiology departments
- Pulpectomy, incision, and drainage
- Caries control, prosthetic adjustments, expectations, and other palliative treatments
- Medical consultation
Please be advised that all fees apply; no free services are provided. See below for information about after-hours emergency care.
