Dental injuries can turn a normal day into a stressful and painful experience, but it's important to remain calm. Remember that we are here to assist you. By taking a few deep breaths and assessing the situation, you'll be better equipped to make the right decisions in an emergency. If your dental injury or accident is causing bleeding, apply pressure to the affected area with a clean piece of gauze. Keep the gauze in place until the bleeding stops or until you can reach our office for further treatment.
Pain medication such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can temporarily reduce pain or swelling. Avoid blood-thinning medications such as aspirin as they can make it difficult to control the bleeding. Along with medication, you can also reduce pain by using a cold compress, such as an ice pack, on the cheek or lip near the affected area.
After composing your dental emergency, call us right away. Even if you're not certain if your situation is an emergency, our team will evaluate the severity of the injury and schedule an appointment as soon as possible to provide the necessary care. That way, you can get out of pain and restore the health of your tooth.

Looking for immediate care? Same-day dentistry gets you in our office right away, so you can quickly get back to a healthy oral state. During your visit, your dentist will examine the dental injury and craft an immediate plan to heal and restore your smile that very same day.
Not all dental emergencies happen during business hours! That’s why we offer after-hours appointments for patients experiencing emergencies that can’t wait to be treated. Call our office to schedule an appointment if you are experiencing a dental emergency beyond our usual hours. Our team will do everything we can to work with your schedule, alleviate your pain, and get your smile back to thriving health.
If a dental emergency occurs over the weekend, there’s no need for you to wait in pain until Monday for an appointment. Our office provides limited weekend availability and appointments by request to ensure you receive the immediate treatment you deserve.
When issues arise, our team can perform problem-focused exams (also known as limited exams) to help address the issues. Limited exams allow us to focus on what’s hurting or injured so we can get you out of pain and back to normal again.
Better diagnostics means better results. With modern imaging techniques, we can quickly and accurately assess your dental emergency, and create a treatment plan right away, so you can relieve your dental pain and get back to your life.
