Dental emergencies here are a big deal. We take them very seriously. If something were to happen during the day, during the evening, you can always get a hold of one of the doctors. It's not a service. You call here to the office. You get one of our numbers and talk to us directly. If it's a, and we can usually deal with it over the phone, or if we have to come up in the evening or come over the weekend. We do whatever we need to do.
If it's during office hours, rarely is it not something that we don't see that patient that day. If it is something that has to be seen the next day, it's something that can wait until the next day. We're very good about getting people in, getting them taken care of, and get them out of pain. Get their front tooth fixed if there's an issue because those are things that need to be addressed. As far as emergencies go and getting in and getting treatment or talking to someone right away, even if it's just a question over the phone that needs to be answered just to ease your mind, those have been pretty much like that. That's how we handle most emergencies.

Save Your Smile With Our Emergency Dental TreatmentRead Transcript
For dental emergencies, we always try to see a patient same day. We'll do ... we'll move their schedule around. We want to see a patient same day if there is a true dental emergency. Another thing that we do is that we don't have another business that we send our emergency calls to. One of the doctors will always be on call, so whether that's in the evenings, weekends, holidays, whenever it is, one of our doctors is on call, so that's who you'll see. There won't be a relay of phone calls, of playing phone tag, we will come in to see you for any emergency that you have.
You don’t have to let a sudden dental disaster disrupt your life. Contact our office as soon as possible. We have many options available to you for pain relief, tooth and dental appliance repair, and long-term restorative dental solutions if needed.
Here are some examples of dental emergencies we routinely treat in our office:
- Infected tooth. An infected tooth may come with symptoms such as pain, swelling, and redness. It should be treated as soon as possible, as it can damage nearby teeth as well (plus your valuable smile).
- Cracked tooth. Depending on the severity of the crack and your pain level, we may determine that your situation isn’t a dental emergency. Give us a call and we’ll help you determine your next steps.
- Broken tooth. A broken tooth’s nerve and inner pulp can be damaged by your mouth’s bacteria and should be handled carefully. Put the tooth in milk or your own saliva and call our office immediately. Be careful not to touch the root of the tooth.
- Dislodged tooth. We can most likely save a dislodged tooth if you call us as soon as possible for an appointment.
