Generally speaking, a dental emergency refers to any problem that needs immediate treatment. This may be to stop bleeding, alleviate severe dental or oral pain, treat infection, or save a damaged tooth. If it can’t wait for a regularly scheduled visit, it’s an emergency and Fine Dental Care is here to help.
Dental injuries, infections, and emergencies are more common than you might think. Dr. Fine treats a wide range of common emergencies, such as tooth pain or sensitivity, a cracked or chipped tooth, or knocked-out tooth, an oral injury, persistent pain, redness or swelling in your mouth, a broken restoration (such as a crown, bridge or dentures), or suspected abscessed tooth.
We offer same-day emergency appointments and treatments to address urgent needs as promptly as possible. Walk-ins are also welcome as scheduling permits. For existing patients, our dentists are also available at all times, even after regular normal business hours and on weekends. Please call our office and select the emergency option, when prompted by the automatic message.
Emergency rooms are set up to help people experiencing medical emergencies. Unfortunately, while your first instinct is to go to the hospital, they are not designed to handle dental injuries or infections. Unless you’re experiencing uncontrolled bleeding or swelling, you should contact Fine Dental Care immediately. Dr. Fine and his team have the state-of-the-art equipment, training, and facilities needed to treat your condition and provide relief.
