Common Types Of Dental Emergencies

A dental emergency is a situation that requires prompt attention from a dental professional. At our office, we understand that you cannot always plan when you will need our care. If you experience a dental emergency, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible. Our team will often be able to get you in the same day you call.

We are happy to care for several types of dental emergencies, including:
  • Severe, lasting toothaches or other tooth pain
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Chipped or broken tooth
  • Damage to the soft tissues of the mouth, including the tongue, cheeks, lips, and gums
  • Cracked or fractured tooth
  • Partially knocked-out (extruded) tooth
  • Lost dental restoration, such as a filling or crown

Emergency Dental Care FAQs

Does my insurance cover dental emergencies?

Insurance plans vary on a case by case basis regarding whether or not they cover urgent dental care. When you call us for your emergency appointment (or even during your regular dental visit), we can look into your insurance coverage for you!

Should I visit the hospital for a dental emergency?

If you have experienced trauma to the head or neck, have severe bleeding, or other bodily trauma, we recommend that you visit the emergency room or your general physician ASAP before coming to us, even if your smile is also damaged.

Is it okay to pull a loose tooth myself?

If your child has a loose baby tooth, it is generally okay to pull it. However, if you or your child has a loose adult tooth, do not pull it. Please contact our office right away and we can help you preserve your adult tooth and prevent it from falling completely out.

If you’re currently dealing with a dental emergency, please contact us immediately. Our team will also be able to provide you with instructions on how to take care of your smile until you are able to get to our office. To learn more about urgent dental care, we invite you to call or visit us today.
