How Do I know If I Am Having a Dental Emergency?

You need emergency dental care if you have any one the following issues:
Broken or Fractured Teeth
Broken or fractured teeth need emergency dental care to prevent further damage so call us and we will get you an appointment as soon as we are able to during our regular office hours. If possible, try to locate the tooth or tooth fragments and rinse with warm water before gingerly placing the tooth back in the socket.
It is possible that emergency dentists can save a knocked out tooth if you rinse it off in warm water and then very carefully place it back in the socket. Contact our office and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure
Suffering from a painful tooth or feeling pressure in your mouth can have many causes. Contact emergency dentists quickly, before the tooth deteriorates any further and the pain becomes more severe.
Extreme tooth sensitivity is as painful as any other type of toothache. Emergency dentists will do their best to see you as soon as possible during our normal office hours.
Dental Decay (Cavities)
Dental decay (cavities) are holes in teeth that when they grow large, hurt terribly. Contact an emergency dental office to schedule an emergency appointment.
An abscessed tooth is infected and needs urgent dental care to prevent complications; do not delay seeking treatment. Your symptoms may include severe pain, swelling of your gums and face and bad breath.
Lost or Loose Fillings
If you have a lost or loose filling, your tooth is vulnerable to further decay. Emergency dentists can fix the loose filling or replace a lost filling.
Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations
When you have broken crowns or lost restorations, your issue is more than cosmetic. Contact our office for an appointment to restore your smile with a permanent or temporary solution.
Orthodontic Pain or Injuries
Orthodontic pain or injuries from metal braces can be painful. Emergency dentists can relieve your pain and prevent further injuries to your mouth.
Tooth Enamel Worn by Teeth Grinding
If you have tooth enamel worn by teeth grinding, emergency dentists can reinforce the enamel and provide you with a night guard for bruxism to keep you from causing any further damage to your teeth.
If you have a toothache and sinus pressure, please contact our office to rule out any serious issues. Occasionally, impacted wisdom teeth or an oral infection will cause sinus pressure.
Handling More Serious Problems
How do I know if I can wait to visit an emergency dental office near me or go to the nearest ER?
