If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please call 911 immediately.
A knocked-out tooth is a common, yet serious dental emergency that often occurs during physical activities or sports. If you lose a tooth, make sure to keep the socket moist, locate the tooth, and come into our office as soon as you can. In some cases, the dentist can restore the original tooth and prevent further dental procedures in the future. If the original tooth cannot be saved, we offer various dental procedures including implants and crowns to restore your smile.
A broken or chipped tooth can either be a very serious or minor dental emergency, depending on the severity of the break. Chipped teeth are common occurrences in physical contact sports, but can also occur just by eating hard foods or using your teeth to open packaging. If you break a tooth, come into our office as soon as possible. We will assess the damage and restore your tooth with dental bonding or fillings.
An Abscessed tooth is a serious tooth infection that affects the center pulp of your tooth where the nerves are located. If an abscess is left untreated, it can cause serious pain and even require an extraction. If you are experiencing excessive pain and swelling around your tooth, you may have an abscessed tooth. We recommend a root canal to clean out the infection and restore the strength of your tooth.
Other dental emergencies may include a serious toothache, biting your tongue, or excessive bleeding after a procedure.
