Do I have a dental emergency?
We don’t ever want you to hesitate to call us if you experience a problem with your oral health. If it concerns you, it concerns us, and we don’t want you to spend time worrying about whether or not it’s an emergency situation.
Common Dental Emergencies
Some emergencies are obvious like having a tooth knocked out. It’s a frightening experience, so you want to be seen as soon as possible. But it’s the most critical dental emergency because we have only a matter of hours in which we can possibly save it.
A toothache of any degree indicates a problem, but severe pain is a sign that you may be in imminent danger of losing the tooth. We will see you as soon as possible to provide the relief you desperately need and take steps to save the tooth and protect your oral health.
If you lose a crown or filling or break a tooth, you may not have to disrupt your day to come see us. But we do need to treat the problem to protect the tooth from further damage and more complicated problems in the future.
