Our Emergency Dental Services

  • Dental Discomfort & Pain. Experiencing either a persistent, mild ache or sudden, sharp pain in your teeth often signals an underlying problem. To address the pain and prevent additional complications, our dental team will identify the root cause and offer effective, quick relief treatments.
  • Dental Injuries: Suffering injuries to the jaw, face, or mouth can lead to issues such as misaligned, cracked, or chipped teeth, a dislocated jaw, swollen areas, intense pain, and more. In these situations, our emergency dental services are available to alleviate discomfort and provide urgent care.
  • Chipped or Broken Teeth: While not all chips and breaks necessitate emergency attention, significant damage can lead to extreme pain requiring prompt treatment.
  • Gum Inflammation: Swelling or irritation of the gums usually indicates an infection, necessitating a thorough examination to ascertain its origin.
  • Dental Infections: Developing an abscess or other infections requires early treatment. Our emergency dental procedures utilize advanced methods to address infections affecting the mouth, teeth, and gums.

In What Cases Should I Seek Emergency Dental Care?

Dental emergencies can be overwhelming and unsettling. Whether you're experiencing severe pain, a broken tooth, or a loose filling, addressing dental needs early can prevent further damage and alleviate pain. So, should you book an appointment or seek emergency dentistry services? If you are experiencing any of the issues below, please reach out to our emergency dentist:

  • Intense Toothache: Severe dental pain is typically a symptom of a more significant issue, like an abscessed tooth. If you are suffering from unbearable pain, contact us immediately. Our emergency dentists can guide you through steps to reduce pain until you reach our office.
  • Broken or Dislodged Tooth: If you have damaged or dislodged your tooth completely, an emergency dentist can provide urgent care to save the tooth and reduce/prevent infection.
  • Periodontal Abscess: Localized sore and swollen gums could be signs of a periodontal abscess. Our team can provide rapid care to treat your concerns and halt the progression of the disease.
  • Swelling: Noticeable swelling in the mouth or facial area, especially if extending below the jaw or towards the eye, requires urgent attention to control infection.
  • Accident-Induced Dental Problems: If you've had an accident affecting your teeth or gums, and there are no other medical emergencies (i.e., broken bones), contact our office right away. In many cases, immediate action is crucial to save your teeth.

Remember, at the first sign of a dental problem, reaching out to us can make a significant difference in your treatment outcome. Your health and comfort are our top priorities.
