Our office telephone is monitored 24 hours a day and seven days a week so that we can answer your call at any time, for any reason.

Dental Emergencies

A dental emergency can happen at any moment. In an instant, your child may fall or bite into something hard that causes a tooth to crack. They may experience severe pain and, in some cases, the gum surrounding the tooth may begin to bleed.

Not every instance of an accidentally-lost tooth requires emergency treatment, but it is better to have a dental expert evaluate the situation to ensure that there is no serious damage to the gum before assuming the pain will subside. Young children especially are prone to severe crying due to dental pain, and this can be managed with a short visit.

We care for all forms of dental emergencies, including:

Orthodontic emergencies

Cracked teeth

Avulsed teeth

Lost fillings or crowns

Severe tooth pain

Bleeding gums

Dislodged teeth

It is important to remember that while children naturally lose their teeth, the process happens gradually and only as the mature teeth develop. An avulsed (knocked out) “baby” tooth may still require emergency treatment, especially if other teeth were cracked or the gum was damaged.

Our dental experts are available around the clock to answer your questions and offer emergency treatment as needed. In the case of any dental emergency at all, know that we are available and ready to help, and do not hesitate to contact us.
