Dental Emergencies

When it comes to a dental emergency, time is of the essence. So, if you’ve got a dental emergency on your hands, do not hesitate to contact us for urgent treatment.

What Is A Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is a critical and urgent dental issue that requires immediate attention from a dentist or alleviate discomfort, prevent further complications, and preserve oral health. It typically involves severe pain, injury, or damage to the teeth or gums.

What Are Some of the Most Common Dental Emergencies?

  • Severe Toothache: Intense or prolonged tooth pain often indicates an underlying issue such as infection, decay, or injury.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: When a tooth is completely dislodged from its socket, quick action may be needed to save the tooth.
  • Chipped, Cracked, or Fractured Tooth: Damage to the tooth, whether minor or extensive, can cause pain and requires attention to prevent further complications.
  • Loose or Dislodged Tooth: A tooth that is partially out of its normal position may need immediate care to prevent additional damage.
  • Abscess or Infection: Swelling, severe pain, and a pimple-like bump on the gums can indicate an abscess or infection that requires emergency dental care.
  • Lost Filling or Crown: The loss of a dental filling or crown can expose sensitive dental tissue, leading to pain and discomfort

What to Do During a Dental Emergency

The first order of business when handling a dental emergency is to stay calm. Assess the situation to determine if calling 9-1-1 is necessary. From there, contact us to let us know you’ll be coming in.
