Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies can happen to anyone, anytime, but they always seem to happen when it’s least convenient! Because we always leave time in our schedule to accommodate patients who need urgent treatment, we can provide prompt pain relief and treatment so you can get on with your busy life.
Types of Dental Emergencies We Treat
Our experienced dentists treat all dental emergencies comfortably and efficiently, including:
- Broken teeth
- Gum inflammation
- Jaw pain or swelling
- Dental trauma
- Lost tooth fillings
- Lost dental crowns
If you experience any of these emergencies, call our Woodbury, MN, dental office as soon as possible. A trained member of our team will ask about your symptoms to assess your situation. They will schedule an appointment based on your needs and provide instructions for handling your emergency until you get to our office.
We are available for same-day dental emergency treatment if you are in pain or experience jaw swelling. Dental pain never goes away on its own, and even if you find temporary relief with an OTC medication, it will return unless we treat the problem. Typically, the longer you wait, the more complex and costly it becomes to resolve.
If you suffer dental trauma such as a tooth knocked out or knocked loose due to a sports injury or auto accident, we have only a couple of hours to try to save the tooth. Please call us right away so we can prepare for your arrival.
Emergency Dental Treatment
We provide same-day emergency dental care, but we don't always have enough time blocked off to complete full treatment at the same appointment.
In this case, our priority is to get you out of pain and ensure that your situation is stable. For example, if you have a root canal infection, we can provide antibiotics to relieve your pain and schedule treatment for our first available appointment.
How to Avoid Future Dental Emergencies
We treat all patients without judgment, and if you come to us with an emergency, you can be confident that we won't lecture you about your oral health habits. All we want is to help you and recommend steps you can take to avoid emergency trips to our office in the future.
Conscientious oral hygiene paired with routine exams and dental cleanings is the best way to ensure your smile stays healthy and problem-free. We look for signs of cavities and gum disease during these visits and check existing crowns, bridges, and fillings to ensure they are in good condition.
