As with most other emergencies in life, dental emergencies rarely happen during normal work hours. Because of this, it can be difficult to handle the pain and even more frustrating to figure out what can be done to rectify the situation. Dental emergencies can also be excruciatingly painful, so immediate relief is often needed to get on with your busy day. Our office can help with any type of emergency that you are currently experiencing. We want you to be comfortable and at ease knowing that whatever the situation is, our helpful and highly trained staff are there by your side every step of the way.
When to Call Our Office
A dental emergency involves any situation that is causing you pain or discomfort. For some people, the pain may be minor but nagging in nature. For other patients, the pain could be excruciating and difficult to handle without immediate resolution. Other emergencies may involve lost fillings or a crown that has become loose and fallen out. Below is a list of commonly seen emergencies in our office:
- Tooth pain
- Gum irritation and pain
- Lost fillings
- Loose and lost crowns
- Broken, cracked or fractured teeth
- Oral injuries and facial trauma
- Abscesses and infections
- Lost dentures
- Emergency extractions (often as the result of severe dental decay)
- Complications due to other procedures
