Emergency dental care is a service we hope you’ll never need – but if you do, it can be a lifesaver.
Your front crown falls off while eating at a restaurant.
You bite down on your pencil, and break your tooth – the night before a big presentation at work.
You had to get the chewy candy at that midnight movie festival, and now your filling is gone.
There are many reasons to seek emergency dental care. Sometimes, the pain of existing problems such as abscesses, swollen gums, or infected mouth cuts can be too much to bear. Immediate relief from prescription-strength analgesics can become a necessity until the patient can be treated during office hours. Any kind of tooth damage — broken dentures, lost crowns or fillings, or a broken tooth — should be taken care of immediately, but doesn’t always happen at the most convenient time.
