24/7 emergency care

24/7 emergency care may be needed if you're experiencing severe tooth pain. A dentist should be consulted as soon as possible if you have tooth discomfort or pain. Early diagnosis and treatment can save teeth and avoid the need for extractions or more serious dental procedures.

What Is Considered a Dental Emergency?

When Do You Need an Emergency Tooth Extraction?  

You may need an emergency tooth extraction if you have severe pain or excessive bleeding. If one or more of your teeth are loose, or if you have knocked out a permanent tooth, it is an emergency. If you have severe swelling in the area of your jawline or if your jaw is injured, you should also seek medical help right away.   

A lost crown or filling, as well as a chipped tooth, are not considered dental emergencies and do not necessitate immediate treatment unless you have severe pain.    

Frequently Asked Dental Emergency Questions 

Q: If I have a tooth infection, what will the dentist do?  

A: If you have a bacterial tooth infection, most emergency dentists will give you antibiotics. Broken or cracked teeth can also be treated.  


Q. What is the definition of a dental emergency?  

A: Any operation involving your mouth requiring immediate medical care and treatment is considered a dental emergency. Some of the most frequent indicators of a dental condition that should be treated as an emergency include severe pain and bleeding.  


Q: Which of the following is the most common dental emergency?  

A: Cracked teeth, broken jaws, and knocked-out teeth, are just a few of the most typical dental emergencies.
