Nobody plans for an emergency, but the seem to happen anyway! From an extreme toothache on the weekend or a that crown falls out during office hours, call us—our phone system will notify our dentist that a patient is in need of emergency oral care.
Emergencies tend to happen at the most inconvenient times. If your dental emergency happens during office hours, we’ll do whatever we can to get you on our schedule and out of pain as quickly as possible. If your emergency happens on the weekend, our doctor may be available to get you the care you need; however, please be patient for a call-back to assess the need to come into the office.
Tooth pain can mean many different things, from the need for a root canal or extraction to the presence of a cavity. But tooth pain doesn’t always mean that a root canal or extraction will be necessary. Please call our office to have the dentist assess your pain and diagnose its cause.
Before calling, please have this information available:
We’ll schedule you for the first available appointment and assess what we can do to immediately control your discomfort prior to your visit. If you need a filling, crown or extraction, we can typically start treatment the same day.
If your pain is due to something for which we cannot treat in the same day due to time constraints (such as a molar root canal), we’ll schedule you for another day that works for you and allows us the appropriate amount of time to give you the personalized care you deserve. In the meantime, we’ll provide you with care that will minimize your pain and/or control any infection that may be present.
Sometimes patients have dental emergencies with no pain. Some of these include:
If this is the case, we still want to see you as soon as possible and encourage you to call us to let us know what you’re experiencing. Many times, these non-painful emergencies can very quickly devolve from pain-free to a high pain level.
