What are Dental Emergencies?

Why is treatment of Dental Emergencies needed?
If you fail to reach out for treatment regarding an emergency, the situation can get worse. Dental problems rarely solve themselves, so treatment is an absolute must in order to maintain a healthy, full smile. Treatment varies from one patient to the next. We do everything that we can to ensure that the emergency treatment is as quick and comfortable for you as possible.

What can be expected during Dental Emergency treatment?
We will first sit you comfortably in one of our exam rooms. From there, we will take a look at the tooth or area that is bothering you. We may take x-rays, if they are necessary in finding the problem. Once x-rays have been taken and an exam has been done, we will provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan. We aim to get you leaving the office with little to no pain and a fully restored smile. If you have an active infection, we will typically prescribe antibiotics before any type of work is done. This allows the infection to clear so that we can work on the tooth properly. Emergency treatment is done quickly and easily in our office.
