What Is Emergency Dentistry?
Dental issues can't always wait for a scheduled appointment. You need prompt attention for dental problems that interfere with your regular activities. We offer emergency appointments to help you return to your daily routine pain-free.
General Dental Emergencies
During office hours, immediate attention will be given to your situation, and you will be seen as soon as possible. After office hours, please give the office a call and follow the instructions provided. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.
If you are experiencing a serious or life-threatening emergency, please call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room.
Below are instructions for handling minor dental emergencies.
You know how much it can disrupt your life if you have a painful tooth. We will diagnose the source of your pain and make a plan to relieve it using a procedure like a root canal.
When a crown, bridge, or denture breaks, it can keep you from eating, talking, and smiling. We can reseat the crown or bridge that has fallen out or repair a denture, returning you to your routine.
If you knock out a tooth, don't panic. A skilled dentist can often replace a knocked-out or avulsed tooth.
An abscess is a dental infection that needs rapid treatment. Symptoms of a dental abscess include an intense toothache or gum pain, redness and swelling inside the mouth or on the jaw or face, extreme sensitivity to heat and cold, and fever.
Chipped or cracked teeth can interfere with your chewing ability and your smile. A cracked tooth may also become infected inside. Our dentist can treat a chipped or cracked tooth using a composite filling, root canal, or crown.
