When to call for dental emergency
If you’re not sure if a dental problem is an emergency, our dentist offer this advice: If it hurts, it’s an emergency. This is because even injuries that seem small or superficial can affect the living tissues inside the teeth. Quick treatment improves the odds of saving injured or damaged teeth.
Even if you aren’t in much pain, any structural damage to a tooth, from a sports injury, for example – should be considered an emergency. Chips or fractures can affect the living tissue inside the tooth, causing more problems in the future. Your dentist can prevent the damage from getting worse.
The same is true for a lost filling or crown. Even if you don’t have any symptoms, the tooth has lost its support and it could easily become weaker. Pieces could break off or crumble, and you would need more extensive treatment. If you see our dentist right away, there’s a good chance that dentist a brite smile will be able to repair the damage with minimal treatment.
Unlike other dental practices, we offer emergency service to our existing patients 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. We also accommodate new patients and offer early morning, evening and Saturday appointments.
