At Gentle Dental Care, we know how vital it is to get assistance with dental issues as soon as possible to avoid further damage or dental issues. This is why we provide same-day emergency dental care during business hours for individuals who do not have a scheduled appointment. Drs. Brad Strober and Rebecca Kucharsky Hiess of Gentle Dental Care encourage patients to connect with them when unexpected problems arise!
What Is Considered a Dental Emergency?
Emergency dental care is immediate attention for an oral health problem that may occur suddenly and unexpectedly. This includes some of the following scenarios:
- Severe toothache or pain in the mouth
- Injury to the face, jaw, or teeth
- Loose permanent tooth
- Lost filling or crown
- Abscessed tooth
- Bleeding in the mouth
How Do I Handle a Dental Emergency?
First, be sure to stay calm! Then, call our office to talk to our front office team or on-call dental provider to discuss your situation and the next steps you need to take. If the issue can wait until the following business day, our team may be able to make recommendations to stay comfortable until your appointment time, which may include prescribing medication at your local pharmacy for pickup. If you have a severe injury or trauma, please call 9-1-1 or visit your local emergency room for immediate assistance.
