As a quality emergency dental office in our area, our clinic can provide fast and effective solutions for patients suffering from pain, infections or injuries. We work with you at every step of your treatment to provide cost-effective options for you and your family.
Emergency Dental Care
Teeth cleanings, examinations and cosmetic dental procedures are not considered to be emergencies in most cases. Broken or damaged teeth, infections and lost fillings are among the most commonly reported reasons for visits to our emergency dental clinic.
Where Can I Find Emergency Dental Care?
Our dental clinic offers same-day and walk-in appointments for emergency patients. Calling ahead can help us plan more effectively for your visit, reducing the amount of time spent in our waiting room. One of our qualified dentists will work with you to make sure you receive treatment for your specific emergency condition and your overall dental needs.
How Much Will My Emergency Dental Care Cost?
Because every case is different, we cannot provide you with an estimate of your costs until you arrive in our office. The full cost of your care depends on your particular circumstances and what we must do to fix the problem. We do make every effort to keep your costs as low as possible and will bill your insurance company to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses even further.
Emergency Dental Services
What Services Are Available from Emergency Dentists?
Our dentists can perform dental services and oral surgery procedures to restore your teeth to a healthier condition right in our local office. Here are some of our most popular services:
Emergency Tooth Extractions: If you have a broken or damaged tooth, we can remove it quickly and almost painlessly.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Wisdom teeth extractions require a high degree of expertise to ensure that these teeth are removed cleanly. We can perform these extractions to ensure your dental health and relieve the pain.
Root Canals: If you have a serious infection of the roots of your teeth, our dentists can perform the therapy necessary to provide relief from pain and swelling. This can help you get back to your normal routine more quickly.
Root Canals for Children: We can also perform root canals and other procedures on children. Our expertise allows us to provide safe procedures for the younger members of your family.
Tooth Extractions: Clearing away non-viable teeth can allow your dentist to fabricate and apply prosthetics to restore your smile to its original beauty.
Conditions that Require the Services of an Emergency Dentist
Here are some of the most common conditions that require emergency care in our office.
Dental Infections: Infections can cause swelling and pain in the jaw and gums. We typically use a combination of dental surgeries and medications to eliminate infections and ensure faster recoveries.
Knocked-out Teeth: Losing a tooth due to a fall, an accident or a collision during a sports event can be a traumatic experience. Placing the tooth in a glass of water or milk can help it stay viable until you can get to our office.
Loose or Lost Fillings: Loose fillings may present a choking hazard. Visit our office as soon as possible to protect your tooth from damage and to ensure the best results for your case.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: If you are experiencing severe swelling of the gums or facial area, this could be a sign of an infection. In this case, we can help with treatments designed to bring down swelling and to treat the underlying causes of this condition.
Severe Toothaches: A toothache can make it difficult to think about anything else. Our team of emergency dentists can find the cause of your toothache quickly and can provide you with advanced treatments to resolve your issues.
Abscessed Teeth: Abscesses are caused by infections in the gums or at the roots of teeth. We can drain the abscess to provide lasting relief from pain and pressure caused by these conditions.
Cracked or Broken Teeth: Visit our office as soon as possible if you experience breaking or cracking of your teeth. These holes can allow bacteria to enter the tooth and could cause a serious infection or further damage to your teeth.
Fractured Jaws: A fractured jaw requires the prompt attention of an emergency dentist to ensure that your bite stays aligned and to prevent damage to teeth and gums.
Loose, Broken or Lost Crowns: Call us right away to replace crowns that have become loose or have broken. This can prevent further damage to an otherwise viable tooth.
