Dental emergencies are situations that require immediate action. The longer the delay, the bigger the risk that the situation could turn into something more dangerous for a patient’s health. Dental emergencies can threaten much more than your oral health.

Types of Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies happen without warning. Teeth can be chipped, broken, or lost in the blink of an eye. Unbearable pain can keep you from eating, sleeping, or going about your daily routine. In these cases, time is of the essence. In some cases, such as a tooth being knocked out, successfully restoring the traumatized tooth or teeth requires action in less than an hour.

Children are especially prone to these types of incidents. We specialize in care for the entire family, especially children. Our dental team performs dental emergency services, but also will help reassure your child during what can be a very traumatic dental event.

If you are experiencing a dental emergency that cannot wait and requires a 24-hour dentist, please call our office immediately for an appointment with a Smile Focus emergency dentist. Even if you are not sure if your situation qualifies as an emergency, please contact us. We will help you determine what needs to be done to eliminate pain and/or infection, and restore your teeth, gums, or mouth to perfect health.
