Emergency Dental Care

A dental emergency can be scary and painful. Often times, they happen when you least expect them. Fortunately, at Happy Smile Dental, we set aside time each day to provide emergency dental care to new and existing patients alike.

Common Types of Dental Emergencies

Woman with jaw painWhile dental emergencies come in all shapes and sizes, we know that attentive care is crucial to getting you back to work or school. Some of the more frequent dental emergencies that we treat include:

  • Toothaches — Throbbing tooth pain can be one of the most uncomfortable situations you’ll ever experience. After numbing your tooth, we can discuss what options are available to keep the pain from returning.
  • Broken or Knocked Out Teeth — Quick attention offers promising results when it comes to reinserting and bonding broken teeth into place. See us within the first hour and keep your tooth fragment submerged in milk or contact solution.
  • Dental Abscesses — Drainage or swelling on your gums is the result of an infection around and inside of your tooth root. Antibiotic therapy and a root canal are usually the only effective treatment.
  • Denture Repairs — Dropping your denture is enough to crack the plate or break off teeth. Don’t try to repair it at home, as it could permanently damage the acrylic or metal base.

Treatment After Hours

If your dental emergency is causing unbearable pain and it’s outside of our normal operating hours (such as on a weekend or holiday) we offer a 24/7 answering service where you can get in touch with our staff. We’ll walk you through what to do next; we can even arrange to meet you for treatment if you require immediate attention.
