All dental emergencies can be potentially serious and should not be ignored as this neglect may lead to permanent damage such as tooth loss. The first thing you should do if you are having a dental emergency is to call us and make an appointment.

Once we have determined what is causing the pain, we will discuss different options to stabilize and address it.
