Toothache, tooth loss, swelling, broken prosthetic and a lost filling are examples of dental emergencies that can occur.

We set aside time in our daily schedule to help you deal with unexpected problems like these. Timely dental check-ups are the best way to avoid dental emergencies. But, sometimes, despite our best efforts to take precautions, dental emergencies still occur. Below are descriptions of common dental emergencies for which immediate care is needed.


If you have a toothache, seek emergency dental care right away. You can ease the pain by rinsing the mouth with warm water. This should help relieve the pain until you reach us.

Lost Filling

If you have lost a filling, preventing harmful bacteria from accumulating in the gap is vital. Come to see us in the office as soon as possible to have the filling replaced.


Swelling is a definite sign of trouble and should be considered a dental emergency. Immediate attention from a qualified dental professional is needed to determine what the problem is and to prevent complications, such as fever and trouble swallowing. Possible reasons for swelling could be an injury, an infection or a cyst.

Tooth Loss

The loss of a permanent tooth is a condition that requires immediate attention from a qualified dental professional. The chances of placing the tooth back are good if it is replaced within 30 minutes. If you have lost a permanent tooth, then come to our office immediately for care.
