frequently asked questions

Emergency dental care involves prompt treatment for dental issues that require immediate attention to alleviate pain, prevent further damage, or address sudden oral health problems outside of regular office hours.

Dental emergencies can include severe toothaches, knocked-out or loosened teeth, cracked or fractured teeth, dental abscesses or infections, soft tissue injuries to the mouth, broken dental restorations (such as crowns or fillings), and other sudden dental traumas

It’s important to seek emergency dental care if you experience severe or persistent tooth pain, trauma to the teeth or mouth, significant swelling or bleeding, or any other dental issue that requires immediate attention to prevent complications.

If you knock out a tooth, it’s crucial to act quickly. Rinse the tooth gently with water (without scrubbing), if dirty, and try to place it back into the socket if possible. If you can’t reinsert the tooth, keep it moist by placing it in a container of milk or saliva and seek emergency dental care immediately.
