Dental Emergency

A dental emergency involves dental pain or damage to your teeth that need to be treated quickly. If you are experiencing any of these six conditions, please contact a dentist right away as it may be a sign of a more serious issue:

  • Tooth or Gum Pain

    This could mean that you are feeling pain or discomfort in your tooth, which may be a sign of an infection caused by severe decay or injury.

  • Abscess

    An area near your tooth that is swollen, tender, and filled with pus could signify an infection. It’s important to contact us as soon as possible to find out if the infection is present. A root canal treatment may be needed to save the tooth from further damage.

  • Tooth Fracture

    If you have a tooth that has suffered from a hard bite or injury, please contact us for treatment. The tooth can become infected if left untreated and cause more serious issues. Seek treatment right away to prevent any further damage.

  • Damaged Filling

    If one of your fillings is cracked or chipped, we recommend you contact us. A damaged filling can leave your tooth vulnerable to bacteria and other issues. Take action and visit an emergency dental clinic ASAP.

  • Damaged or Ill-Fitting Dental Crown

    Dental crowns are strong but can be broken or loose if not taken care of. If this happens, it is very important to see your dentist immediately.

    If you are experiencing heavy bleeding or discomfort, it is essential to seek medical or dental assistance without delay.

  • Minor Symptoms

    Non-emergency dental issues, such as a mild toothache, small tooth crack, broken braces, or a minor cut or sore, should still be addressed, but seeking immediate attention is unnecessary. It’s okay to wait for an appointment during regular business hours to have the issue addressed.
