What is a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is any situation that requires prompt treatment from a dentist to resolve. Common dental emergencies include:

  • Toothaches or other persistent tooth pain
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Injuries to the gums, tongue and cheek
  • Broken, chipped, cracked or fracture teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Lost fillings or crowns
  • Dental abscess or infection

If you have received a head or neck injury, a broken jaw, or another serious injury, or if your injury is life-threatening, we recommend that you call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room before contacting us, even if you may also need dental treatments.

When you contact our office, our team will provide you with instructions on what to do until you can make it to our office. Some of these instructions are included below for your use.
