Preventative measures to avoid emergencies

While we can’t anticipate every dental emergency, there are some steps you can take to reduce your chances of running into trouble. Avoid putting additional strain on the teeth, such as when biting down on hard substances, and take extra care when playing contact sports. Above all, seek to maintain optimal oral hygiene with effective cleaning and regular general dentistry checkups.

Questions about emergency dentistry

In some cases, root canal treatment can be performed as an emergency. This is necessary when a tooth becomes infected, and the infection threatens to spread to other teeth. If you’re experiencing pain or swelling in the mouth, contact us immediately — our emergency dentists offer same-day appointments for root canal treatment six days a week.
Wisdom tooth extraction is classed as an emergency in some cases. This is true when the tooth erupts only partially, which can lead to the formation of gum flaps where bacteria gathers and sparks infection. If you think you have a wisdom tooth infection, call us at your earliest convenience for an emergency extraction.
Fillings are generally not classed as an emergency dental procedure. This is because fillings are regarded as a minor dental problem. However, if your filling is chipped, lost or otherwise causing you pain, we may be able to offer an emergency appointment to prevent the issue from developing further.
