We’re Your Place for Emergency Dentistry

Young woman in pain holding cheekNo matter how careful you are, emergencies can happen at any time. Despite this, you can take solace in the fact that if you experience one, you can simply call 911 and someone will take care of you. However, if this emergency concerns your teeth and gums, calling 911 isn’t the best thing for you to do.

When you’ve injured or broken your teeth, your first call should always be to Exceptional Dentistry. Our office has the personnel, the training, and the equipment needed to perform urgent dental care, which are things you simply won’t find in most emergency rooms/clinics. Often, these places will just send you to a dental practice anyway!

If you or a loved one has a dental emergency, be sure to call us first. This will enable our team to make an appointment to see you as soon as possible (even the same day!) and walk you through basic first-aid over the phone. Once you’ve made it here, you won’t wait, we’ll bring you to a treatment room immediately. Most of the time, we can complete emergency procedures in just one visit, but if we can’t, we’ll be sure to relieve your pain and schedule any follow-up visits necessary.

When Should I Call My Emergency Dentist?

In these situations, be sure to stop whatever you’re doing and call us immediately for treatment:

  • Knocked out tooth
  • Partially dislodged tooth
  • Cracked, chipped, or broken tooth
  • Lost or damaged dental work (fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures)
  • Severe toothache
  • Large object stuck between the teeth
  • Injury to the gums or jaw
  • Swelling or pain in the face

Dr. Patrick Carroll and Dr. Deborah Shoemaker are specially trained to handle emergency situations, so when you need dental care fast, they’re the doctors you can trust. Hopefully you never have to deal with a dental emergency, but if you do, you now have a plan, and that is to call Exceptional Dentistry. We’ll always be there for you when you really need us!
