Emergency Dental Services
What Type of Emergency Dental Services Are Available?
Helping you regain your good oral health is important to us, so we offer a number of emergency dental services:
Emergency Extractions: We always want to be able to save your natural teeth, when possible, but sometimes a tooth is so decayed or damaged that it needs to be removed. If you have a damaged tooth, call our office right away.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Some young adults experience pain, tenderness or infection before their wisdom teeth come in. Keeping these teeth decay-free and health can be problematic and an extraction may be the best course of action.
Root Canals: Keeping your natural teeth is always preferable, and root canal therapy can help you preserve your infected tooth. The therapy helps to remove decay or inflammation from the pulp of your tooth.
Root Canals for Children: Some children may need root canal therapy to save their natural teeth. Our skilled dentists and dental team members work to ensure your child’s comfort during the emergency dental procedure, using anesthesia and other useful methods.
Tooth Extractions: When a tooth is too injured or too decayed to save or needs to be removed to make room for a dental device, we provide more routine tooth extractions at our dental clinic.
When Are Emergency Dental Services Necessary?
Pay attention to the warning signs that you may need urgent dental treatment. If you have any of the following issues, contact our office today.
Abscessed Tooth: If your face is suddenly very swollen or if you have a fever accompanied by severe dental pain and swelling, you may have an abscessed tooth. Call our office immediately for emergency dental treatment and pain relief.
Broken or Cracked Teeth: Broken and cracked teeth are susceptible to decay and infection. Don’t delay treatment and risk further damage to your tooth. Schedule an appointment with one of our dentists who can treat the broken tooth.
Broken or Fractured Jaws: It’s a dental emergency when you fracture your jaw. With a fracture, you may experience pain, numbness, swelling, bruising or a misaligned bite. Contact our office for help as soon as possible.
Broken, Loose or Lost Crowns: A chipped, dislodged or lost crown jeopardizes your tooth’s health and safety. Visit one of our dentists for emergency care to replace the crown and restore your smile.
Dental Infections: You can develop an infection at the gum line from improper or haphazard dental cleanings. Visit our dentist for treatment and to learn how you can help ward off future infections.
Knocked-out Teeth: Having your tooth knocked out can be alarming, but your quick action may enable your local dentist to save your tooth. As soon as your tooth is knocked out, find it and try to put it back in the socket. If placing it in the socket is impossible, store the tooth in a glass of cold milk and bring it with you to your appointment.
Loose or Lost Fillings: When a filling loosens or falls out of the tooth, it leaves that tooth exposed to bacteria that can cause damaging decay. Your dentist can replace the filling to restore its protection.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: If you have painful swelling, visit our office so our dentists can diagnose the cause and provide pain relief.
Severe Toothaches: Don’t ignore persistent tooth pain. Our dentists can provide treatment and relieve your discomfort.
