  4. Strong sensitivity to hot and cold
  5. Chipped or broken teeth 
  6. Lost filling or dental crown
  7. Swelling

Why do Dental Emergencies occur?

Dental Emergencies can be caused by many different things. Some are naturally occurring from normal wear and tear of past dental procedures, like a crown falling off; others are from accidents, like a fall that breaks a tooth, or a bad apple that cracks one. Tooth pain is oftentimes a sign from your body that your teeth need urgent attention! Eventually, cavities will begin to cause extreme discomfort. If it is an infected tooth, we may need to perform a root canal to remove the infected pulp, and then seal your tooth. Depending on which tooth it is, you may also need to restore the tooth with a dental crown.

Regardless of the cause, we can make your toothache stop and help ensure you do not have to go through that discomfort again…because when you have tooth pain that is distracting you from your normal life, you want care as quickly as possible!
