Emergency Dental Care
If you experience a dental emergency, be sure to call your dentist as soon as possible. If you need immediate attention after hours, call the emergency phone number. If you are unable to reach your dentist during an emergency, dial 911.
Dental professionals are here to help you, and when your dental health is at risk, treatment should be sought as soon as possible. While dental emergencies are rare, they can happen, and it’s important to know how to take care of your teeth no matter what. Common dental emergencies include:
- A bitten lip or tongue
- Broken or cracked tooth/teeth
- Broken jaw
- Permanent tooth that has been knocked out
- Object caught between teeth
- Severe toothache
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so if you have non-emergency questions, schedule a call with your dentist to get the answers you need before an emergency takes place.
