What exactly is Emergency Dentistry?
Emergency dentistry involves treating and correcting dental-related emergency situations. It is important that you call our office as soon as you notice a problem concerning your oral health. Our goal is to provide immediate care to new and existing patients who are experiencing an emergency. Our office is equipped to handle all types of emergencies and we are able to provide you this care in a calm, comfortable manner.
Why do you need treatment for a Dental Emergency?
If left untreated, an emergency situation can get worse and cause more problems. If an infection is present, the infection will not go away on its own and may require more aggressive treatment if left untreated. This is why it is important that you come into our office to receive the care that is needed. Once the area is examined, all options of treatment will be provided and our team will be supportive in the decision the patient elects.
What might constitute a Dental-Related Emergency?
