Common Dental Emergencies
Even when you do your best to take care of your smile accidents can still happen. The most common accidents surrounding your teeth and mouth include losing a tooth, cracking, or chipping the area, harm to a dental crown, toothache, jaw pain, a tooth that feels loose, or having debris stuck between your teeth.
There is no need to feel nervous or embarrassed to see us during an emergency. We are fully equipped to examine the area, determine the problem, and create the best treatment plan for you as soon as possible.
You Are Our Top Priority
We want all our patients to be safe and healthy. That is why we take urgent care very seriously in our office. A dental emergency may not be life-threatening, but it can be severely uncomfortable or lead to further problems. We know that the sooner an issue is addressed, the sooner you can be relieved of pain.
Whether you need restoration, removal, or other means of assistance, we are here to treat your emergency on short notice. Your comfort and safety are our top priority during this time.
Determining The Problem and The Necessary Treatment
It is important that we understand the root cause of your pain or injury to best address the problem. For some people, a severe toothache could be due to decay that has spread into the root of the tooth. This could lead to needing a root canal to relieve the pain.
Cracking or chipping a tooth should be addressed as soon as possible because the chances of infection and further injury are higher. To help this, a dental crown may be the best solution.
If you have debris in between your teeth that you are unable to remove, we can help. It is better to have a professional remove the problem rather than further injure yourself in the process. Continually poking around at the problem may cause you to further lodge it or you could harm your teeth in the process.
