At our office we understand that dental emergencies happen. From broken teeth to a dental infection you thought might get better…we understand when you need help and we don’t judge.
We always encourage patients or non patients needing an emergency dentist to call as soon as possible…dental pain in most cases does not get better. Calling our office during the week can save you the additional costs of after hours care. On most days, we can get you in to see one of our dentists that very same day.
What would be a dental emergency? Any problem that would that would require action to save a tooth, stop ongoing tissue in the mouth from bleeding, or alleviating severe pain in the mouth or involving teeth. Additionally infections in the mouth (also know as abscesses in the mouth) need immediate attention. Abscesses in the mouth can be life threatening. Don’t delay in seeking treatment.
Can you use your dental insurance for emergency dental care? Of course, as long as we can verify your coverage with your dental insurance carrier we can use your dental insurance for emergency dental care. Keep in mind insurance companies have many different levels of coverage and what you think they cover may not be so. We are happy to check for you.
