Emergency Dental Care
Do you need emergency dental care? We recommend you simply call our skilled emergency dentistry team if you have a toothache, severe tooth pain, or other dental problem that is bothering you or worrying you.
We often treat these types of emergencies:
- Chipped or broken teeth.
- A tooth that has been knocked out.
- Moderate to severe tooth pain.
- Loose teeth.
If you don’t know why a tooth is hurting, there may be a serious underlying cause, such as an infection in the root canal. Once we diagnose the problem, we will often be able to resolve it in the same appointment. We know your time is valuable, so call us right away for emergency dental care.
Diagnosing a Dental Emergency
Sometimes, it is difficult to know for sure if your toothache is a true emergency. You may not know if a tooth is supposed to be that loose; you often don’t know if a tooth pain will go away naturally or will get worse.
That’s why the most important first step in emergency dentistry is to get your dental issue diagnosed. We have years of experience in quickly going through our checklist to find the main cause of the issue.
Often, dental equipment is the only way to get a real diagnosis. An x-ray scanner, intraoral camera, high-powered lights, and even a dental mirror can all be used in your diagnosis.
