Even if you observe proper dental hygiene and go for regular dental checkups, there are conditions that may arise that would require you to seek urgent attention. Our professional team is here to provide high-quality, compassionate emergency dental care when you need it.
A dental emergency is any problem that involves the teeth, jaw bones, tongue, and surrounding tissues that requires urgent attention or treatment. A dental emergency may or may not be painful.
When you visit our dental office with an emergency condition, we can attend to any pain or discomfort and keep you comfortable. The situation will be managed temporarily to keep you stable enough to seek a permanent solution. Emergency dental care may follow these routines: urgent appraisal, diagnosis, guidance on available treatment options, advice on preventive care, surgical treatment (when necessary), taking radiographic photos, dispensing prescription drugs, simple extraction, and referrals to specialists (when and if necessary).
Conditions that may require emergency attention include swelling, root canal, toothache, abscesses, oral trauma and accidents, injuries to the mouth from contact sports, gum, tongue, lip or mouth swelling, broken dentures and loose crowns. These conditions should be treated as a high priority, and we recommend that patients suffering from any of the above seek dental attention as soon as possible.
As with our other services, we do our best to make sure that receiving emergency dental service is as affordable as possible. Our dental emergency treatment cost varies based on your unique situation.
