Dental FAQs in Flint

We answer questions about dental health!

My tooth won’t stop hurting, but I can’t see what’s causing the pain. What’s wrong?

You’ll need to come to our office for a thorough examination before we can give you a definitive answer. Sometimes, tooth pain can be caused by an infection, in which case we may need to perform a root canal. A tooth becomes infected when bacteria work their way beneath the enamel, and begin actively decaying the tooth. Endodontics offered by our general dentistry team give you a better chance of keeping the tooth, rather than allowing it to be lost to dental decay. Please call us immediately if you are affected by persistent tooth pain, and we’ll do what we can to help!

Do you see emergency dental cases?

Yes! We see existing patients for same-day emergency dental care during normal business hours. Call us as soon as possible to schedule an emergency appointment at Dr. Naik’s office.

How can I replace a missing tooth?

It depends on your smile, but Dr. Naik offers many different ways to help patients replace their teeth. If you would like a permanent replacement, it may be possible to have a dental implant placed by an oral surgeon or attach a fixed bridge. We’re also able to fit patients for dentures or partial dentures. Call us today to schedule an examination and learn which option could be best for your needs!
