We Provide Expert Urgent Dental Care

Though we hope a dental emergency is something you never experience, we are here to help whenever unexpected dental problems occur.

If you suffer an accident that damages your teeth or if you’re experiencing unexplained oral pain all of a sudden, we’re here to care for you with our emergency dental services.

Our dentists are experienced in dealing with a range of dental emergencies related to accidents and other issues.

We will do everything in our power to treat you promptly and relieve dental pain as quickly as possible. If you or a loved one is experiencing a dental emergency, call us immediately.

When Should I Call an Emergency Dentist?

If you’re experiencing sudden dental pain that you can’t deal with, it’s considered a dental emergency.

Other types of dental emergencies are when you get a tooth knocked out or broken or if you have a filling or crown that falls out or feels loose.

You should also call an emergency dentist if you’re experiencing abnormal bleeding from your gums, harsh tooth sensitivity, or unexplained pain for long periods of time.

Examples of dental emergencies include:

  • Broken or knocked-out teeth
  • Loose or fallen fillings or crowns
  • Serious bleeding from the gums
  • Extreme tooth sensitivity
  • Continuing oral pain and toothaches

How to Deal with a Dental Emergency

Whenever you’re dealing with a dental emergency, it’s very important to remain calm.

Of course, it can be difficult to do so if you’re experiencing extreme pain or if you’re in shock from an accident, but it’s important to try and keep your cool in order to deal with the issue in the best way possible.

As soon as you feel you’re experiencing a dental emergency, contact us for urgent dental care so we can resolve the problem as soon as possible.

The longer you wait to take care of a dental emergency, the higher the risk of further dental issues.

Contact us right away if you think you’re experiencing a dental emergency. We can identify the problem and resolve it before further complications arise.

What To Do If a Tooth Gets Knocked Out

There are certain things you need to do to help preserve a knocked-out tooth and make it easier to save.

If a tooth falls out of your mouth, make sure to pick it up by the crown (the top part) and not by the root (the part that goes in your gums). If the tooth is dirty, rinse it off with water or milk.

Try to place the fallen tooth back in its socket and keep it there until you can make it to our office and get it put back in place. If you can’t comfortably place your tooth back in the socket, the next best thing is to place it between your cheek and your gums and keep it there in your mouth.

As a last resort, put your tooth in a cup of water or milk until you can see our emergency dentist.

This keeps your fallen tooth moist and preserves its pulp, which makes it easier to put back into your mouth as if nothing happened.

If the tooth hasn’t been out of your mouth too long and is in good shape, our dentist should be able to splint it back into place so the root can reattach itself in the socket. However, if the knocked-out tooth broke, it could require a more complex emergency dental procedure.

Quality Emergency Dental Care

From accidents to toothaches, we’re here to take care of you and provide the best emergency dental care. We will do everything we can to get you into our office and out of pain quickly.

Call us right away if your teeth have a sports-related injury or any other type of accident that caused a dental injury.

If you are experiencing unexplained oral pain or toothaches that won’t go away, we can identify the problem and fix it.

Our emergency dentists are always available to assess your dental emergency and resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

If you have the slightest suspicion that you’re experiencing a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to call us and describe what’s going on.

We’re here to help determine if your situation requires urgent dental care, or if there may be another more adequate solution.

Don’t wait to see what happens and risk more complications!
