Your Relief Is Our Primary Concern
Although dental emergencies come in all shapes and sizes, one thing we know for sure is that they almost always happen at the most inconvenient times! If you’ve ever experienced a dental emergency, you know that there’s nothing worse than “toughing it out” until your dentist can fit you in.
At the very least, dental emergencies can inhibit your ability to enjoy life. For instance, a dental crown that has broken or come off completely may not always be painful, but it can make simple things like chewing and interacting with others a challenge.
At the other end of the spectrum is an emergency like an abscessed tooth that can be quite painful. You simply cannot (and should not!) postpone treatment as this kind of pain signals a serious problem.
We want you to feel confident that we are always reachable by phone if you have a dental emergency. Our goal is to get you out of pain and treat your problem as quickly as possible. We always allow time in our schedule for emergencies, so simply call our office and we will make arrangements to see you the same day!
What Is a Dental Emergency?
A severe toothache is the most common dental emergency that we treat. A toothache can be so miserable that you may not be able to go about your daily activities. When a painful tooth prevents you from working, accomplishing necessary tasks, and meeting your everyday responsibilities, we know that you need help – and fast. That’s why we’ll make your emergency a priority.
Some of the dental emergencies we can resolve for you are:
- Injury to one or more teeth
- A chipped or broken tooth
- A tooth that’s been knocked out
- A severe or sudden toothache
- Development of abscess or infection
