How to avoid dental emergencies
To avoid dental emergencies from occurring it’s important to take all protective measures available. This includes visiting the dentist regularly every six months and staying proactive caring for your oral health by brushing twice and flossing daily.
It is also important to wear a protective mouthguard during contact sports, preferably a custom made one to fit your bite correctly.
However, if you happen to unfortunately suffer from a dental emergency listed above, or another one, please contact us.

Frequently Asked Questions
Emergency dental care involves providing urgent dental treatment for unexpected problems that occur outside of regular office hours. Emergency dentists are responsible for diagnosing, assessing, and treating issues that can cause severe pain or trauma to the mouth. Examples of such treatments may include extractions, root canals, crowns, bridges, and fillings, all aimed at minimizing any potential long-term effects on your oral health.
You should seek emergency dental care if you experience any sudden, severe tooth pain or trauma to your mouth, such as a chipped tooth or an abscess. Additionally, emergency dental care may also be necessary for other significant oral health issues that cannot be resolved with over-the-counter remedies. Investing in regular oral health check-ups can save you money in the long run and ensure that your smile remains healthy. Scheduling routine appointments with your dentist can help identify potential issues before they escalate into more serious problems.
Dental emergencies can be promptly resolved by seeking professional care from a qualified dentist. The four most common types of dental emergencies include severe tooth pain, mouth trauma, broken dental appliances, and abscesses. When experiencing severe tooth pain, seeking immediate dental attention can help alleviate discomfort and address any underlying issues. Dental professionals can also expertly address mouth trauma, broken appliances, and abscesses to help restore oral health and prevent further complications. By taking swift action and seeking the right care, you can quickly overcome dental emergencies and return to enjoying a healthy and happy smile.
