We offer walk-in visits and same-day appointments to those dealing with a serious dental issue.

We get it—life doesn’t always happen the way you’d expect it to. The same can be said for dental emergencies. While it’s not something anyone looks forward to experiencing, it happens—and when it does, we’ll be here for you.

Our practice is proud to offer focused and effective emergency care when you need it most. In fact, we schedule time each day to allot for these types of appointments to ensure we have the ability to fit you in as quickly as possible.

If you’re experiencing an oral issue outside of our regular practice hours, feel free to call us and we can better instruct you on what to do and recommend a course of care until we’re able to see you.

What is a Dental Emergency?

While any trauma, pain or discomfort that you’re experiencing in your mouth can constitute a dental emergency, here are a few common instances that we see often:

  • Toothaches
  • Broken dentures
  • Cracked or knocked out teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Lost fillings
  • Infections in the teeth or gums
  • Damaged veneers
  • Oral lacerations from trauma
  • Sports injuries to the mouth

If you’re currently experiencing something from the list above, we recommend calling us to book an appointment straight away. The quicker you can get in to our practice, the faster we’ll be able to bring you out of pain and restore comfort, as well as make sure your oral health hasn’t been compromised.

Please note, we’re able to safely operate and perform dental emergency treatments while maintaining a high level of sanitation in the practice due to Covid-19. Your health and wellness, along with the safety of our team members, are our top priority. If you’ve recently been diagnosed with Covid-19 or are experiencing flu-like symptoms, we ask that you let us know before entering the practice for your appointment.

FAQs

Do you offer late or early appointments for emergencies?

Yes! In addition to being able to fit you in during our regularly scheduled hours, we can make ourselves available outside of business hours for issues requiring our immediate attention. It’s best to give us a call straightaway if you’re in this situation so we can determine how best to assist you quickly.

My tooth hurts. Do I need to come in for this?

This depends on quite a few factors. First, how long has your tooth been hurting? If you’ve had a severe ache for more than 24 hours, it’s best to give our practice a call and come in for a visit, as it could be a sign of an infection or abscess. If you’ve experienced any recent trauma to the area, it’s also a good idea to come in and have your mouth examined. If your toothache is recent and has only lasted for a couple of hours, we suggest first trying an over-the-counter pain reliever. If your ache persists longer than a day, please give us a call.

Should I visit your practice or the hospital?

If you are in severe pain or experiencing blood loss, we recommend that you visit your local emergency room as quickly as possible.
