What are Typical Emergency Dental Services?

Emergency dentists typically treat patients with severe toothaches or patients with other issues that need treatment quickly to avoid further damage. At our emergency dental office, dentists see patients with the following conditions during office hours:

Broken or Fractured Teeth

Broken or fractured teeth need emergency dental care to prevent decay-causing bacteria from getting inside your tooth. Call our emergency dental office and we will fit you in as quickly as possible during our regular office hours.

Knocked-Out Teeth

If you have knocked-out teeth, we may be able to re-implant the tooth if you find the tooth and rinse it off. Hold the tooth by the crown and try placing it back in the socket before calling our office to make an appointment.

Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure

Multiple issues could cause searing tooth pain or pressure. Do not delay seeking care from emergency dentists, especially if you have other symptoms. The searing pain you feel could be any number of things that are long-term damage to your oral health.

Tooth Sensitivity

Minor tooth sensitivity is not an emergency, however, if your tooth sensitivity is very painful and it came on suddenly, you may have a gum infection or a fractured (cracked) tooth. We try to leave time during our day for emergencies; we understand how important this is to someone in pain.

Dental Decay (Cavities)

If you ignore dental decay, it will spread and cause a large, very painful cavity once the tooth’s root exposed. Normally, emergency dentists will try to preserve your tooth and stop the pain.

Abscessed Tooth

An abscessed tooth needs urgent dental care to avoid potentially serious consequences. Symptoms of an abscessed tooth include a severe toothache or sensitivity, foul breath and swelling or an open sore on your gum.

Lost or Loose Fillings

Lost or loose fillings are an emergency since the cavity is exposed to bacteria and the tooth is structurally weakened if the filling was large.

Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations

Broken crowns or restorations are not only a cosmetic problem; the lost restoration leaves the tooth susceptible to injury. Our dentist may be able to fix your crown, so bring in the pieces if the crown broke in half.

Orthodontic Pain or Injuries

When you have metal braces, broken brackets or lose wires can cause orthodontic pain or injuries. Emergency dentists will work to stabilize your braces and alleviate your pain.

Tooth Enamel Worn by Teeth Grinding

If you grind your teeth at night, you can wear out your enamel to the point that it needs reinforcement. We can fit you with a mouth guard to wear at night to protect your teeth from further damage.

Sinus Pressure

Sinus pressure combined with tooth pain may indicate impacted wisdom teeth or a dental infection. First, emergency dentists will rule out dental problems that are causing your sinus pressure so you can speak to your medical doctor about treatment.

How Would I Know if I Needed Care Immediately?

I’m afraid I cannot wait for emergency dental services at your dental office. When should I head straight to the nearest ER?

There are emergencies that cannot wait. If you experience any of the following, go to the nearest emergency room or call 911 for assistance:

  • Trauma to the face, jaw or teeth, including a suspected broken jaw
  • Severe or uncontrolled bleeding in your mouth
  • Severe swelling of your face or gums

How Much Should I Expect To Pay at an Emergency Dental Office Near Me?

We cannot give you a price estimate for emergency dental care until your condition has been reviewed. Emergency dentists can diagnoses your problem and decide what treatment option is best. We strive to offer affordable care. If you have treatment options, our dentist will give you a price for each one. We work with most major dental insurance companies, but if you are uninsured, we can offer several financing options. We accept most major credit cards as well.
