Dental Emergencies

Emergency dentistry is needed when one of the following situations arises:

  • A tooth is broken or dislodged by trauma, accident or chewing;

  • A debilitating tooth ache occurs;

  • A dental restoration breaks loose.

Dental pain is no joke! A painful tooth can be caused by many different issues. If a visual scan or intraoral photography does not reveal the immediate problem, x-rays will likely be necessary to look for causes. The source of tooth pain may include:

  • Severe tooth decay, reaching down to the root,
  • Bacterial infection, leading to abscess,
  • Oral cystsor tumors.

Our examination will reveal the cause and we will proceed to the remedy. Tooth pain can be a sign of serious illness and can progress to dangerous problems, if not handled immediately.
