we understand the importance of addressing dental injuries as quickly as possible. For this reason, we always accept dental emergency walk-ins at our office.
Although toothaches typically develop over the course of time, in certain situations a patient may experience a sudden, severe toothache. This is typically caused by cavities, exposed roots or even a crack in the tooth.
Unfortunately, our teeth are not indestructible and on occasion a patient chips or cracks their tooth. In these situations, we recommend immediate treatment from our emergency dentist; this can help prevent further damage, decay or even an infection.
On occasion a patient suffers an accident that manages to completely dislodge the tooth, resulting in a missing tooth. This can not only affect your smile’s appearance but also its functionality, often resulting in shifting of teeth and increased risk of tooth decay.
Partially Dislodged Tooth
In certain traumatic dental injuries, the tooth may become only partially dislodged. We recommend immediate treatment in these cases, as the timeliness of treatment could mean the difference between saving the tooth and losing it.
Lost Dental Work
No matter how sturdy your dental work is, there is always a risk it may become loose or dislodged. If you lose a filling, veneer or crown, we recommend contacting our dental office to have the work repaired by our emergency dentist so further damage does not occur.
