Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Emergencies


What is considered a dental emergency?


We consider it a dental emergency if you’re in unbearable pain, if you have uncontrolled bleeding, or if you need immediate treatment in order to save a compromised or knocked out tooth.


Is a toothache an emergency?


Some toothaches are emergencies, but others are not—give our office a call and we can help determine whether you need a same-day appointment. Some toothaches are a sign of infection or dental abscess, in which case urgent treatment is needed.


Can you fix broken dentures?


Yes, we can often repair broken dentures—but not always. It depends on the extent of the damage they’ve suffered. Rather than trying to fix your dentures at home, call our office for an appointment.


Does a broken crown need to be replaced?


Yes, if you’ve broken a crown, it will need to be replaced. With prompt treatment, we can usually put your original crown back in place as long as it or your tooth hasn’t suffered any damage.
