Dental Emergency

What is a Dental Emergency

A dental emergency is any dental issue that is causing you pain, discomfort, or bleeding. This can include a loose or knocked out tooth, a toothache, swollen gums, dental abscess or infection, or any other dental issue that you cannot fix on your own. We offer same-day appointments, as treating dental emergencies in a timely fashion is extremely important for your overall health.

What to expect at Your Emergency Visit

In order to properly diagnose your dental emergency, an exam by one of our doctors and dental radiograph will be taken. We will evaluate your dental situation and come up with a clear plan in order to make you comfortable again.

Frequently Asked Questions

A dental emergency includes any dental issue causing pain, discomfort, or bleeding. Examples include a knocked-out tooth, severe toothache, swollen gums, dental abscess or infection, or any dental problem that requires immediate attention and cannot be resolved on your own.

We prioritize dental emergencies and offer same-day appointments. We understand the importance of timely treatment for your overall health and strive to provide prompt care when you need it the most.

During your emergency visit, one of our experienced doctors will conduct a thorough examination and take dental radiographs to properly diagnose your condition. Based on the evaluation, we will develop a clear treatment plan to alleviate your discomfort and restore your dental health.

There are several types of dental emergencies that require immediate attention. Some common types include:

  1. Toothaches: Severe and persistent tooth pain may indicate an underlying dental issue, such as an abscess or tooth decay.
  2. Knocked-Out Tooth: If a tooth is completely dislodged from its socket, immediate dental care is necessary to increase the chances of saving the tooth.
  3. Chipped or Fractured Tooth: A broken tooth can cause pain and expose sensitive nerves, requiring prompt dental treatment to prevent further damage or infection.
  4. Dental Abscess: An abscess is a bacterial infection characterized by swelling, pain, and the formation of pus. It requires urgent dental attention to prevent the infection from spreading.
  5. Lost Dental Restoration: If a dental filling, crown, or bridge becomes dislodged or falls out, it can cause discomfort and expose the affected tooth to further damage or infection.
  6. Soft Tissue Injuries: Trauma or injury to the lips, gums, tongue, or cheeks that results in excessive bleeding or severe pain may require immediate dental care.

It's important to note that any dental issue causing severe pain, significant bleeding, or interfering with normal oral function should be considered a dental emergency and warrant prompt attention from a dentist.
