A dental emergency is a situation that requires prompt attention from a dental professional. At our office, we understand that you cannot always plan for when you will need our care. This may be to stop bleeding, alleviate severe tooth pain, treat tooth infection, or save a damaged tooth. We will do everything we can to treat emergency conditions and get your smile back on track.
Dental emergencies are more common than you might think! We are happy to care for several types of dental emergencies, including severe toothaches, a lost dental restoration (crown or filling), soft tissue damage (tongue, cheeks, lips, and gums), a cracked or fractured tooth, a chipped or broken tooth, or a knocked-out tooth. If you suffer from one of these conditions or another type of dental emergency, please contact our office.
We will do everything we can to accommodate the needs of our emergency patients with same-day appointments! We also welcome walk-in patients. If possible, please try to call ahead of time. This will allow our team to be able to provide you with instructions on how to take care of your smile until you are able to come to our office to meet with us.
Hospital emergency rooms are the best choice for medical emergencies, but they aren’t set up to handle dental emergencies. If you have experienced trauma to the head or neck, we recommend that you visit the emergency room or your general physician before coming to us, even if your smile is also damaged. However, for general dental emergencies, please call our office right away.
