Frequently Asked Questions

An emergency is considered any pain or sensitivity revolving around the teeth or gums. This can include but is not limited to a severe toothache, a knocked-out tooth, chipped or broken teeth, broken fillings or crowns, swollen gums, or bleeding that does not stop. Please give us a call and schedule an appointment so we can fix the issue.

Emergency rooms are great for when you need relief for only certain emergencies. Usually, the ER does not have the correct equipment to take care of dental issues that come up. When it comes to dental, it’s best to schedule an appointment with a skilled dentist to get the best results.

When a tooth gets knocked out, make sure to call our office as soon as possible. There are a few things that you need to do to make sure that the tooth is in good condition. Make sure you hold the tooth by the top, not the root. Rinse with water and carefully reinsert the tooth into its socket if possible, if not, keep the tooth in a damp towel with milk or water. Again, please give us a call as soon as possible to fix the tooth.

If you have a severe toothache, make sure to rinse your mouth with warm water and remove any food that is stuck with floss. Do not place aspirin on the tooth or gums as this can create more problems.

Yes, we can schedule an emergency appointment whether you are a new patient or an existing one. We want to make sure that you are out of pain and taken care of.

If you have bleeding gums or swelling, make sure to rinse your mouth with warm water and salt. You can also apply an ice pack to your cheek to reduce the swelling in that area. Don’t forget to call us to schedule an emergency appointment as soon as possible.

In case of a dental emergency involving a child, stay calm and act quickly. Follow the same steps as you would for an adult and get in touch with our dentist who provides emergency pediatric dental services. We can offer specialized care tailored to the needs of children.

Depending on the insurance and the type of plan you have, most insurance covers emergency appointments. It’s best to call your insurance and find out what exact coverage you have.

To avoid needing an emergency appointment, it’s important to come into your regular checkups and cleanings, have good oral hygiene, avoid chewing on hard foods or candies, and wear a mouthguard during sports.

We want to make sure that all patients who are experiencing an emergency are seen same day or as quickly as possible.
