Our Emergency Services
Our office provides emergency care when you need immediate attention. Signs of a dental emergency include:
- Cracked teeth
- Bleeding that will not stop
- A missing tooth
- Swelling and pain
If you are not sure whether you are experiencing a dental emergency, simply call our office and speak with our staff.
Teeth can crack because of excessive wear, hard food, or trauma. Delaying treatment for cracked teeth can result in more extensive damage. We can provide a dental crown to strengthen and protect a cracked tooth.
An dental infection can cause an abscess, which is a collection of pus that forms around the tooth. The result is pain and swelling. Abscesses should be treated as quickly as possible to prevent the infection from spreading.
A random toothache can occur as a result of decay, an abscess, or a damaged filling. If your tooth pain is severe and is accompanied by a fever, earache, or difficulty widening your jaws, you should schedule an emergency dental service.
Emergency Dental Surgery
Depending on your symptoms, we can perform oral surgery procedures in our office including:
- Wisdom tooth extraction
- Impacted canine extraction
- Apicoectomy or gum flap surgery
We are proud to provide comprehensive dental care. There is no limit to our scope of services, and we encourage you to call us to discuss your symptoms.
The cell phone numbers for both doctors are provided on our answering machine, so you can reach us at any time of day.
What to Do in an Emergency
To alleviate pain and swelling prior to your appointment, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as ibuprofen. If the pain radiates to the outside of your cheek, you can apply an ice pack for 20-minute increments. To relieve swelling, you can rinse with a warm saline solution. Simply combine one teaspoon of salt in a cup of water. If your tooth has fallen out, try your best to keep it moist until you can visit the office.
