What is Emergency Dental Care?
Emergency dental care involves the immediate diagnosis and treatment of an emergency situation. Many dental emergencies happen when you least expect them, leaving you in pain, discomfort and feeling distressed. The emergency can be as simple as a filling that has fallen out to something more problematic like an abscess or severe tooth pain. We are here to provide your emergency dental care in a welcoming, warm and affordable manner.
Why might you need Emergency Dental Care?
If you are distressed or in pain over any type of dental problem, we recommend calling us immediately to be seen. We are equipped to handle most dental emergencies and can provide you with the care that you need in a comfortable environment. Some of the most common dental-related emergencies include:

What are the benefits of immediate Emergency Dental Care?
While you might try to prolong seeking dental care as long as possible, it is important to come in to have the emergency situation handled. If left untreated, the problem could get worse and require more invasive treatment. We are here to take your call whenever you are dealing with an emergency. We work quickly to get you in so that one of our doctors can treat the problem.
What can you expect during the appointment for a Dental Emergency?
Once you have been scheduled to come in, we will take an x-ray of the area that is bothering you. This x-ray helps our doctors see if there is an infection or decay present at the base of the tooth. We will perform a comprehensive examination of the area to determine what the problem is and to create a personalized treatment plan. If there is an infection in the area, you will be given antibiotics before treatment can begin. Dental emergencies should be handled as soon as feasibly possible. Our staff is fully involved and committed to helping your emergency appointment go smoothly.
