Emergency Dentistry – The Importance of Immediate Attention

Our team of highly skilled and experienced dentists is available to assist you, no matter what time it is, and provide you with the necessary care to alleviate your pain and prevent further complications.
What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?
A dental emergency can be any situation that requires immediate attention from a dental professional. Some common examples of dental emergencies include:
- Severe toothache
- Knocked-out tooth
- Chipped or broken tooth
- Lost filling or crown
- Abscess or infection
- Soft tissue injury (e.g. bitten tongue or lip)
It’s important to seek emergency dental care in the case of any of the above, or any other condition that is causing you pain or discomfort. Ignoring a dental emergency can lead to further damage and potentially, the loss of a tooth.
