What is a Dental Emergency?

Some common dental emergencies include:

  • Chipped or fractured teeth

  • Severe dental pain or toothache

  • Knocked out tooth

  • Swelling in and around the mouth that may be due to infection


What can I expect during my emergency visit?


Our dentists will begin with an exam to determine the source of your discomfort. We will use digital x-rays to help our dentists identify problems. There can be a variety of symptoms or signs such as infection, inflammation, or exposed nerves. These are signs that our dentists will be looking for in order to locate and treat your emergency. 

Once the source of the concern has been identified, our goal will be to minimize the pain and discomfort. We may render treatment and we may also prescribe you antibiotics to continue to manage and treat the source of your pain.
