What are Dental Emergencies?
Emergencies can happen for a variety of different reasons. The dental-related problem can leave you in severe pain and feeling incredibly frustrated over your oral health. We offer immediate emergency treatment to new and existing patients. Our goal is to get you leaving the office pain-free and feeling confident in your smile.
Why is treatment needed for Dental Emergencies?
The vast majority of dental problems will not repair themselves. In fact, these issues can just get worse over time. This may eventually cause problems with infections, abscesses and the need for more invasive treatment. We recommend that you have treatment for an emergency as soon as you notice there’s a problem.
What are common Dental Emergencies?
We see a variety of different dental-related emergencies on a regular basis. In order to prevent many emergencies, it’s important to keep up with routine dental checkup visits. Some of these emergencies might include:
- Pain and severe toothache

- Broken, cracked or chipped teeth

What can be expected during your Dental Emergency procedure?
The emergency appointment begins by sitting you in one of our comfortable operatories. We will ask you about the problem and then perform an exam to help in identifying the issue. Oftentimes, x-rays are needed so that we can further find the problem that you’re experiencing. We provide you with immediate treatment in our office so that you can leave without the pain or sensitivity that you experienced before coming in. If you have an infection, we will normally prescribe you a series of antibiotics to clear out the infection before any additional work is done. Emergency treatment is easy, quick and highly beneficial to all of our patients. Even if you’re a brand new patient, we welcome you to come into our office for the care that you need.
If you are experiencing a dental emergency, call us today so that we can get you in for an immediate appointment to be seen.
