Emergency Dental Services
What Are Emergency Dental Services?
We are passionate about providing you with the emergency dental treatment you need in order to regain your good oral health and ease your tooth or gum pain. Take a look below to see some of the emergency dental services we offer.
Emergency Extractions: When a tooth is significantly damaged, sometimes the best course of action is an emergency extraction. We use anesthesia and other calming techniques to help keep you at ease during the procedure.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: The eruption of wisdom teeth can cause painful infections and tooth pain. If your wisdom teeth have recently emerged and they are causing you pain, schedule an appointment with our emergency dental professionals for an emergency extraction.
Root Canals: When a tooth becomes severely infected, a root canal can eliminate your tooth pain and help preserve your tooth.
Root Canals for Children: Root canal therapy can also help children retain their natural teeth. Our dentists are gentle and experienced in pediatric root canal therapy.
Tooth Extractions: While our dentists will do their best to save your natural teeth, sometimes a routine extraction is needed to preserve your oral health.
When Should I Get Emergency Dental Services?
Paying attention to your oral health can help you spot the signs for when it’s time to seek urgent dental care treatment. Below, we list a few of the symptoms and conditions that require emergency dental services.
Abscessed Teeth: Intense tooth pain, gum or facial swelling and a fever can be signs of an abscessed tooth. This condition can pose a serious risk to your health. If you have these symptoms, call your dentist right away.
Broken or Cracked Teeth: Broken or cracked teeth require immediate care to restore the affected tooth and provide protection against decay and infection. If you have broken or chipped a tooth, contact our office for treatment.
Broken or Fractured Jaws: Signs of a fractured or broken jaw include facial or jaw pain, and a feeling that your bite is off in some way. Broken or fractured jaws warrant immediate care from local emergency dentists.
Broken, Loose or Lost Crowns: An intact crown protects your tooth from damage, but when a crown cracks, loosens or falls out entirely, your tooth is left defenseless. Your dentist can prepare a replacement crown to restore your tooth’s protection and appearance.
Dental Infections: Infections can be caused by any number of issues from avoiding regular dental cleanings to untreated, damaged teeth. Our dentists will treat your infection and teach you how to protect your teeth from future infections.
Knocked-out Teeth: Having a tooth knocked out can be scary, but quick action may help you save your tooth. As soon as the injury occurs, try to place the tooth back in its socket or store your tooth in cold milk until your appointment with an experienced dentist for emergency care.
Loose or Lost Fillings: Fillings that are loose or dislodged present a risk to your tooth’s health. If you have lost a filling or if your filling isn’t secure, visit our dentist for a replacement filling.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: When your face or gums swell significantly, it’s important to call our emergency dental clinic right away. Swelling can be a sign of a serious oral health issue, which our dentist will be able to diagnose and treat to improve your health and relieve your discomfort.
Severe Toothaches: Intense or persistent tooth pain is your body’s signal that you need to seek out emergency dentists for urgent dental care. Our dentist can alleviate your pain and treat the cause of the pain.
