What Is Emergency Dentistry?

Emergency dentistry refers to the treatment of urgent dental conditions. When the situation is serious enough that it needs immediate attention, we prioritize your case either during or after business hours. Whether you’ve experienced dental trauma or have a severe toothache, we can do our best to address it as soon as possible. 

Benefits of Emergency Dentistry

Emergency dentistry provides a variety of benefits: 


  • Save your tooth. A tooth that is infected or damaged may be able to be saved if it receives prompt treatment. Waiting too long could result in loss of the tooth. 
  • Pain relief. Severe pain can be unbearable, even with over the counter pain medication. Emergency dental care can provide fast relief of your pain, whatever the cause. 

After hours availability. A dentist who offers emergency care will be available after hours if the situation is urgent.

What Is Considered A Dental Emergency?

There are a variety of dental situations that could be considered emergencies. A severe toothache, severe pain anywhere in the mouth, a cracked or broken tooth, a dental or oral injury with bleeding, or any other situation that is too urgent to wait until the following day. If the situation is life threatening, such as uncontrolled bleeding, difficulty breathing, or loss of consciousness, call 911 or proceed to the nearest hospital emergency department.
