Do I Have a Dental Emergency?

You have a dental emergency if you have persistent pain in one of your teeth or have suffered trauma to your mouth. We want to get you out of pain and recover your smile right away, so we treat these situations with urgency. We also want to quickly treat any aesthetic emergency that seriously affects your appearance, like a chipped front tooth, so don’t hesitate to call in those cases either.

Common Causes of Pain

  • Severe tooth decay that has reached into the pulp of the tooth
  • A cracked or broken tooth
  • An infection in the gums or mouth
  • An infected wisdom tooth

When the pulp of the tooth has become decayed or infected, root canal treatment will be needed. If this is your situation, you should know that root canal treatment is a straightforward procedure that doesn’t typically cause stress or pain.

Anxious About Your Dental Emergency?

Your health and well-being are important to us, so we want to make dental care as accessible to you as possible. For this reason, we offer nitrous oxide as well as conscious oral sedation to help you relax during your treatment. We also know that there are many circumstances that may have limited you from receiving consistent dental care in the past. Whatever the situation that has led to your dental emergency, we want to get it taken care of for you.
