What are Dental Emergencies?
A dental emergency can happen at any time and for a variety of reasons. Whether you keep up with your dental health regularly or you haven’t been to see a dentist in awhile, emergencies can leave you in pain and agony. We offer quick, efficient treatment of dental emergencies for both new and existing patients. We understand the frustration of dealing with a dental-related emergency and are here to make treatment go as smoothly as possible.
Why is treatment for Dental Emergencies necessary?
While you might assume that a dental emergency can be ignored and will eventually go away, this isn’t always the case. Many dental problems get worse without treatment and can lead to infections, severe pain and tooth loss. By coming into our office for care of your dental emergencies, you will receive treatment right away to prevent the problem from getting worse. We offer many treatment options and provide care for both pediatric and adult patients.

What happens during your appointment for Dental Emergencies?
Your emergency appointment starts with an examination. This allows our doctor to examine the tooth or area that is bothering you to determine the root cause of the problem. X-rays and other images may be needed to help in diagnosing certain intra-oral conditions. We will work to provide treatment as quickly as possible and can diagnose antibiotics on an as-needed basis.
