Emergency Dental Care and Exams

Severe pain or discomfort in the jaw, gums or teeth can often become unbearable. At Let's Smile Dental we offer same-day emergency dental services and appointments to provide immediate relief and long-term dental solutions!

If you are experiencing a dental emergency:

  • Calmly assess jaw, lips, teeth & gums. Look for swelling, bleeding, broken bones, and altered teeth.
  • Decide if you need to call the dentist. We recommend calling if: a tooth has been pushed back or fallen out, you or your child has bitten through the upper or lower lip or tongue.
  • Decide if an Emergency Room visit is needed. We recommend going to the ER if: there is a broken bone or other significant injury.
  • Monitor the situation from home. We recommend monitoring the situation from home if: your child is not bleeding, no major bruising or swelling has occurred, no teeth have been moved or no teeth are significantly mobile.

Frequently asked questions about Emergency Dental Care

Should I go to the emergency room or a dentist?
For most dental emergencies, an emergency dentist is the best option. They have the expertise and equipment to handle these situations effectively. The emergency room is typically reserved for severe cases with uncontrolled bleeding, facial swelling affecting breathing, or trauma to the jaw or face.

Is emergency dental care expensive?
Emergency dental visits typically cost more than routine checkups because they often involve additional time and resources. Check with your dental insurance provider to understand your coverage for emergency care.

Regular dental checkups and cleanings are your best defense against dental emergencies. However, if you do experience a dental emergency, don't hesitate to seek prompt professional attention to alleviate pain, prevent further complications, and get your smile back to health.

If you are suffering from severe pain or discomfort don’t hesitate to call us! Our accommodating team will help you schedule an emergency exam as soon as possible. We’re here to help!
