Our Emergency Dentistry Can Save Your Smile

Dental emergencies happen all the time. While they may not threaten your life, they can sure damage your smile unless you get prompt care. We try to fit you into our schedule on the same day you call whenever possible. We’ll do a thorough examination of your mouth and likely get X-rays to diagnose what’s going on with your dental health.

Depending on what we see, we may perform treatments, such as:

  • Gum Disease Treatment – We’ll revive your gum health and eliminate the infection. It’ll help you avoid potential tooth loss.
  • Tooth Fillings – If you have a cavity, we’ll get rid of the decayed portion of your tooth, then fill it in with a tooth-colored filling.
  • Root Canals – An infection that has reached the pulp of your tooth needs a root canal to restore your tooth to health.
  • Inlays or Onlays – These partial crowns can cover the biting portions of your teeth or the sharp edges of your tooth.
  • Dental Crowns – A lifelike crown is often used to protect severely damaged teeth or mend cavities too large for fillings.
  • Dental Bridge – If you have lost one tooth or several, a dental bridge can be placed to fill the gaps in your smile.
  • Tooth Extractions – If a tooth is too damaged or decayed to save, we’ll gently extract it to protect other healthy teeth.

We know many of our patients experience anxiety about the dentist. That’s why we offer cozy amenities like massage chairs, soothing music or white noise, and warm blankets. Also, our comfort dog April will be happy to show you love and attention to put you at ease!

Common Questions about Dental Emergencies

What if I have a dental emergency without insurance?

Even if you don’t have any insurance, we’ll still be happy to help you with your dental emergency. We don’t want anyone suffering needlessly through a dental crisis. We accept all major credit cards, plus we have arrangements with CareCredit, which offers financing options with attractive interest rates.

What are some common dental emergencies?

Common dental emergencies include toothaches caused by cavities or infection, cracked or broken teeth, and broken dental restorations. With our team’s years in practice, we have significant experience in handling all these situations. We will relieve your discomfort and restore your mouth to health with restorative treatments.

Can I prevent dental emergencies?

No one can anticipate every possible dental emergency, but you can take steps to reduce your odds of having such a problem. Following ADA recommendations – brushing and flossing daily and getting regular dental cleanings – reduces your risk of tooth infections and gum disease. Plus, wearing athletic mouthguards during sports can protect your teeth from injuries.
