Find Relief Here for Your Dental Crisis

When unexpected dental problems strike, it’s important to know how to handle them promptly. Our team understands the urgency of dental crises and is here to provide you with the necessary care. Below are some common types of dental emergencies and how you can find quick relief:

  • Toothaches – Toothaches can be caused by various factors, such as tooth decay, infection, or a cracked tooth. Rinse your mouth with warm saltwater and use dental floss to remove any food particles that may be causing discomfort.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth – If a tooth gets knocked out, gently rinse it with water and try to place it back in its socket. If that’s not possible, place the tooth in a cup of milk or saliva. Visit our office immediately for the best chance of saving the tooth.
  • Chipped or Broken Tooth – Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. Save any broken tooth fragments and bring them to your appointment.
  • Lost Filling or Crown – If a filling or crown falls out, clean the area and try to temporarily reattach it using dental cement or toothpaste. It’s important to visit us as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the tooth.
  • Abscessed Tooth – An abscessed tooth can cause severe pain and swelling. Rinse your mouth with saltwater and use a cold compress to alleviate discomfort. Schedule an emergency appointment with our dental office to receive proper treatment and prevent the infection from spreading.

Our top-notch dental team delivers compassionate and gentle care and will make sure you receive the best treatment possible during your dental crisis.

What can you do for my dental emergency?

When you come in for a dental emergency, we’ll first assess your condition to determine the next steps. Depending on your situation, we will recommend particular services to restore your smile. They may include a tooth-colored filling to repair dental decay, a same-day dental crown to strengthen a damaged tooth, a root canal to repair an infected tooth, or a tooth extraction if we’re not able to save your tooth.

What if I have a dental emergency without insurance?

We’ll happily treat your dental emergency, and we provide several payment options to take care of the cost, including third-party financing through CareCredit and LendingClub.
