What counts as a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies may look like a fractured tooth, ongoing bleeding in the gums, or anything else that requires urgent dental care care to relieve severe pain, restore a tooth, or stop bleeding in the mouth. Accidents are the main culprit when it comes to why dental emergencies happen.

What are the most common emergency dental cases?

  • Extruding tooth
  • Loose crown
  • Toothache
  • Fractured tooth
  • Infection or abscess in the mouth or gums
  • Knocked-out or dislodged tooth
  • Objects caught between teeth
  • Swelling or bleeding in the gums
  • Broken denture, filling, or crown

What causes dental emergencies?

Accidents are the cause of most dental emergencies, such as falls or sports injuries. Tooth decay, loose fillings, and other types of dental injuries are also common triggers, and may require emergency dentistry.

How long do I have to wait for an emergency dental appointment?

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms we’ve mentioned above, it’s time to seek emergency dental assistance. If left untreated, the dental injuries may become worse. Because of this, we take dental emergencies seriously, and make sure that we can take care of you on the same day you give us a call.

How much does an emergency dental appointment cost?

Every dental emergency is unique. Once you arrive, our emergency dentists will diagnose you to determine which procedures are needed. Cost factors include:


  • The dental repair needed
  • Materials used in the procedure
  • Whether you need after-hours or weekend dentistry
  • Whether sedation dentistry is needed
