Emergency Dentistry

There are many different types of emergencies that we can handle on a day-to-day basis. It’s important to contact us as soon as you begin to notice a problem concerning your dental or oral health. 

What is Emergency Dentistry?

Emergency dentistry involves treatment planning and caring for emergency-related situations. We offer a range of treatment options that are ideal for many different types of emergencies. It is important to receive treatment for an emergency as soon as possible to prevent it from getting worse. Our goal is to provide you with a caring, welcoming environment for all of your dental needs.

Why would Emergency Dentistry be needed?

If you continually forgo dental treatment and ignore emergencies, the problem will continue to get worse. Simple tooth decay can get to the point where a root canal or extraction is needed and lost restorations can become an issue for overall oral functioning. We offer emergency care to both new and existing patients and can create a treatment plan as needed.

What might be considered a Dental Emergency?

What can you expect during your Emergency Appointment?

You’ll first come into our office and be seated in one of our comfortable exam chairs. We will then take x-rays of the area, if needed, to help in diagnosing the problem. Dr. Salamon will then come in and perform a comprehensive examination to checks of any intraoral issues. We will be able to create a treatment plan as needed and begin the work to relieve your pain and discomfort. If an infection is present, you may need to take antibiotics to clear the infection before further treatment can be started. We offer emergency care to both existing and new patients of all ages.

If you have a dental emergency and require immediate care, call our office today and we’ll work to get you in as soon as possible.
