Comprehensive Emergency Dental Services

By contacting an experienced emergency dentist as soon as possible, you can protect your or your child’s teeth to the greatest possible extent while limiting the chances of dangerous infections, permanent tooth loss and other adverse outcomes. We will do everything in our power to make sure you get the treatment you need as soon as possible. In many cases, we can see patients who need emergency services on the same day.

Do I Have a Dental Emergency?

Some factors that may tell you that you require emergency dental services include:

  • Severe pain
  • A broken, loose or displaced tooth
  • A knocked-out tooth
  • Infections in the gums or other parts of the mouth
  • Bleeding

When dealing with a potential dental emergency, it is wise to err on the side of caution. If you think you are in an emergency situation but are not sure, contact a professional as soon as possible to receive advice and direction you can trust.

Most Common Emergencies

Some of the most common reasons people need an emergency dentist include:

    • Injuries to the mouth: From falls in the house to full-contact sports, there are many situations in which blunt force to the mouth can chip, dislodge or even shatter a tooth.
    • Infections: Oral infections can be extremely painful and dangerous. If left untreated, they can spread to other parts of the body.
    • Lost dental crown or filling: When the protective barrier of a crown or filling is displaced, the underlying tooth is exposed to damage. Loose materials in your mouth can also present a choking hazard.
    • Toothache: A toothache may seem like a minor problem, but you should see a dentist about it as soon as possible, especially if the pain is severe. A toothache can lead to other serious health problems if left to develop into an abscess.
    • Orthodontic emergencies: Broken braces or other compromised orthodontic devices can cause cuts inside the mouth and other serious issues.

    Same-Day Urgent Urgent Treatment

    When a dental emergency cannot wait, you may not have the luxury of scheduling an appointment days—or even one day—in advance. Same-day treatment can provide you with immediate pain relief, curtail any damage or health risks, and give you the peace of mind that you are in the trusted hands of a professional. 

    Emergency Extractions

    Pulling a tooth is never the first option an emergency dentist considers, but in some cases, it is the best way to protect your overall dental health. With advanced anesthetic and sedation techniques, your dentist can conduct the needed extraction in a manner that causes you as little pain and stress as possible.
