Generally speaking, a dental emergency refers to any problem that needs immediate treatment. This may be to stop bleeding, alleviate severe tooth pain, treat a tooth infection, or save a damaged tooth.
Sometimes it can be difficult to know whether you need emergency care. What may seem like a minor inconvenience can cause more painful and expensive issues later if left untreated. If you experience a problem with dental repair work or dental prosthetics, be sure to call us right away to schedule an appointment. This can include a loose or missing filling, broken crown, damaged dental bridge, or a cracked or broken denture.
Dental emergencies are more common than you might think! Our doctors and team treat a wide range of common emergencies in our Bridgewater dental office, such as infected teeth, bleeding teeth or gums, mouth sores, knocked-out teeth, and chipped, cracked, or broken teeth.
Our doctors and their team will do everything we can to see you! That’s why we make ourselves available 24/7 for after-hours or weekend emergencies. Walk-ins are also accepted as scheduling permits. No matter when your dental emergency occurs, we are here to give you the care you need.
We understand that dental emergencies can be stressful and your first instinct may be to go to the hospital. Emergency rooms are the best choice for medical emergencies, but they aren’t set up to handle dental emergencies. Unless you’re experiencing severe symptoms of uncontrolled bleeding or swelling, you should contact your local dentist right away. Our experienced dentists have the advanced training and fully-equipped facilities needed to provide relief.
