Dental emergencies can be frightening, even if they do not necessitate a hospital visit. We leave openings in our schedule to provide same-day emergency dentistry services for chipped, broken, infected, or knocked out teeth. If you are experiencing severe tooth pain for any reason or have a dislodged tooth, prompt treatment is one of the best ways we can ensure the safety of your tooth and your health. If you need emergency dentistry services, please contact us as soon as possible! The sooner a tooth can be fixed and restored, the less likely it may need more complex treatment or be extracted.
If injury to the face or head has occurred, involving bleeding, loss of consciousness, a severe headache, dizziness, or difficulty or pain when moving the jaw, immediate medical attention is necessary. Trauma to the head, face, and neck regions require the expertise of a medical professional and oral and maxillofacial surgeon for proper diagnosis and treatment. We provide emergency dentistry care for non-traumatic dental emergencies only.
Chipped or broken teeth that are no longer structurally sound run the risk of becoming further damaged. A chipped tooth is easily broken, exposing the sensitive interior of the tooth and increasing the chances of infection. Chipped teeth can be restored with porcelain veneers, and dental crowns can protect both chipped and broken teeth.
Tooth pain and facial swelling is commonly a sign of a tooth infection that may need to be treated with a root canal. Removal of the infection keeps the bacteria from spreading and damaging other teeth or entering the blood stream. We combine root canal therapy and CEREC same-day technology to restore teeth in as little as one appointment.
A knocked-out tooth can most likely be saved if treatment is received as soon as possible. The sooner the tooth can be re-implanted in the socket, the greater the chance it will reattach to the bone. If you or a family member has a dislodged tooth, place the tooth in a container of milk and contact our office immediately.
