Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies are inconvenient. Tooth pain will stop you from eating your favorite foods and if it is severe, the pain may keep you from getting a good night’s sleep. You cannot avoid a dental visit at this point because severe pain does not go away on its own.

What is Emergency Dental Treatment?
At our Eilan office, our dentists deliver emergency dental care to patients in distress. Pain is the most common reason people call us, so many emergency dental treatments work to relieve pain quickly. Some of the procedures that we offer include:
Emergency Extractions: Emergency dentists try to save their patient’s teeth. If pulling the tooth is the only option, they perform emergency extractions with little to no discomfort for the patient.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Since we have evolved beyond needing our wisdom teeth, many people simply don’t have room for them in their mouth. We can extract emerged, partially erupted wisdom teeth that are crowding your other teeth or infected wisdom teeth.
Root Canals: Do not worry if our dentist wants to save your tooth with a root canal. The procedure is relatively quick and can provide relief from painful symptoms.
Root Canals for Children: Saving a child’s baby tooth with a root canal is better than extracting the tooth, even though it will eventually fall out. Baby teeth help adult teeth align properly.
Tooth Extractions: We also offer extractions for people experiencing overcrowding and other non-emergency reasons for extractions.
When Is it Time to Visit an Emergency Dentist?
If you are wondering when you should have emergency dental work, you should not delay if you are experiencing any of the following signs or symptoms.
Abscessed Teeth: The pain from an abscessed tooth usually drives people to seek emergency dental treatment. If you wait too long, you may lose your chance of getting away with a simple treatment. Our dentist may have to pull your tooth to keep the infection from spreading.
Broken or Cracked Teeth: You will want to see a dentist if you break or crack your tooth. It’s possible that our emergency dentist can repair your tooth if you call our office right away.
Broken or Fractured Jaws: Contact our office immediately if you have been injured and believe that your jaw is fractured or broken.
Broken, Loose or Lost Crowns: Call our office to get help with a loose, broken or lost crown. Your tooth is weak without a crown to cover it and provide strength.
Dental Infections: Dental infections are emergencies. If the infection spreads, it could have serious consequences.
Knocked-out Teeth: We treat knocked-out teeth, also known as avulsed teeth, as an emergency since it may be possible to re-implant the lost tooth if it is knocked-out in one piece. Rinse the tooth off, being careful not to touch the root. Push the tooth back in the socket and use gauze to hold it in place. Call our office immediately and we will try to get you an appointment in time to save your tooth.
Loose or Lost Fillings: You should see a dentist within a few days after losing a filling or having a filling come loose. Bacteria could settle in the cavity and start forming decay.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: Don’t ignore painful oral health issues, such as swelling. Our dentist can find out why your face or gums are swelling and relieve the discomfort.
Severe Toothaches: With severe toothaches, an emergency dentist may suggest root canal therapy if you have intense, throbbing tooth pain and infected tooth pulp. A root canal will stop the pain permanently and save the tooth.
