What’s Considered a Dental Emergency

While any problem with your teeth should warrant a call to the dentist and eventual visit, not everything requires an urgent emergency visit. Issues that we consider an emergency include extreme pain or infection, sudden bleeding and/or swelling, trauma or injury, lost or cracked filling, broken tooth, knocked out tooth, and a broken or missing crown. So make sure you have our number programmed into your phone so that you’re ready to reach us if presented with any of these issues.
