Emergencies happen!

An emergency dental exam focuses on the problem area and may also include digital x-rays of the specific area of the mouth. The goal of an emergency dental exam is to address an acute issue, and to diagnose and recommend treatment to alleviate pain, swelling, or possible infection. Depending on the type of issue, we may be able to provide treatment on the same day, or may prescribe antibiotics to address an infection and to complete the treatment once the infection has cleared.

Emergencies include:

  • Toothache/Sensitivity
  • Broken/chipped tooth
  • Loss of a dental crown/bridge/veneer
  • Accidents to teeth
  • Loss of a dental filling
  • Sports injuries to teeth or gums
  • Swelling or inflammation in and around the mouth
  • Broken or ill-fitting partial or complete dentures
  • Lost or broken Invisalign attachments or trays
