We are open for emergency dental care. If you have any dental concerns, we are here to help you get the treatment you need. Please call with any questions.

Many patients may be unsure whether a dental concern counts as a dental emergency. We understand it may be difficult to know. However, if it’s a concern to you, it’s a concern to us. Pain is not the only way for a dental emergency to be present, so it’s important to discuss your particular issue with a dentist. We are also available for teledentistry or virtual consultations, so you can get the care you need from your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Five Signs You May Need Emergency Dental Care

If the situation could lead to further dental or medical complications, it counts as a dental emergency. Specifically, there are five issues that most commonly require treatment from a same-day dentist. These are:

  • Severe Pain – this is a sign of infection that may require antibiotics as well as pain relief medication.
  • Accident – an injury to your mouth/jaw should be seen immediately.
  • Lost tooth – assuming it was a permanent tooth, there’s a possibility the tooth could be saved if seen in time.
  • Excessive bleeding – this may be due to gum disease, an accident, or any number of other causes.
  • Pus or Infection – known as a periodontal or periapical abscess, this type of infection could actually spread if ignored.
