If you are in pain, then you are having a dental emergency. Call us right away so that we can examine you, diagnose the problem, and create a treatment plan. Other signs that indicate the need for an emergency appointment include:
A pimple-like lesion on your gum
A broken or cracked tooth
A foreign object lodged between your teeth
Swelling in the gum
A broken or lost dental restoration such as a filling or a crown
The goal of an emergency dental appointment is to address the immediate need, resolve your problem, and relieve your pain. If we believe further care is needed, we will ask you to schedule a regular appointment to follow up and set up an appropriate treatment plan to prevent future problems.
