How Do I Decide If I Need to Find an Emergency Dental Office Near Me?
I’m not positive I need emergency dental care. How do I know?
If one of these conditions sounds familiar, you should seek urgent dental care.
Broken or Fractured Teeth
Even if you do not feel any discomfort, broken or fractured teeth need emergency dental care to prevent any further damage to the tooth. Infection is also a concern; so do not delay seeking treatment.
Knocked-out teeth can pose cosmetic and structural problems. If your tooth has been knocked out, try to find all of the pieces and call our office for an appointment and further advice.
Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure
There are a number of reasons why you could have a severe toothache or pressure in your mouth. It’s best to have an examination by emergency dentists, especially if you are experiencing other symptoms as well.
Acute tooth sensitivity is a warning that something is wrong that requires emergency dental care. Mild tooth sensitivity is not considered a dental emergency.
Dental Decay (Cavities)
If you have intense pain from dental decay (cavities), you need emergency dental care to alleviate your pain and to repair the tooth. If you do not seek emergency treatment, you could experience worse problems, such as developing an abscessed tooth.
Our emergency dental office will treat your abscessed tooth as soon as we can during our regular business hours and provide you with pain relief and rid you of the foul breath that accompanies abscesses.
Lost or Loose Fillings
Lost or loose fillings are a common problem. Usually, emergency dentists can fortify the tooth with another filling.
Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations
A broken crown or lost restoration leaves the tooth it was restoring defenseless against further damage. Additionally, emergency dentists can offer temporary or permanent solutions to keep your smile looking great.
Orthodontic Pain or Injuries
People with metal braces may suffer orthodontic pain or injuries from broken brackets, wires and springs. Call our office to have your braces stabilized and get pain relief.
Tooth Enamel Worn by Teeth Grinding
Tooth enamel worn by teeth grinding is a serious problem. Our dentists will reinforce teeth enamel and suggest methods to stop nighttime teeth grinding, which may include night guards.
Experiencing sinus pressure and a toothache is not only annoying, it could be a sign of problems with your wisdom teeth or you could have an infection. Contact our office to schedule an appointment. Emergency dentists are able to rule out any serious conditions right away.

What Will it Cost For Me to Visit An Emergency Dental Office?
While emergency dental services are generally affordable, we are unable to provide specific quotes until we evaluate your condition. The severity of your problem, in addition to the treatment options you and your dentist decide upon, will determine the final cost. We accept most of the major dental insurance plans, however, we also realize that uninsured dental care may be harsh on your budget. Ask us about our financing options.
We encourage our patients to sign up for DentRite®, a discount dental plan that offers significant discounts for many procedures, including many emergency treatments. It is not an insurance policy; DentRite® is a discount plan that is open to everyone. Contact us for additional information. If you are unhappy with DentRite®, you can cancel within 30 days.
