Contact the Vitalize Dental team if you’re suffering from unbearable dental pain or have a tooth that is partially or entirely missing.

How It Works

Any dental emergency (harm to the teeth or gums) can be potentially dangerous and should not be disregarded. Ignoring dental problems can raise the risk of irreversible damage and the need for pricey and pervasive procedures down the road. While treatment varies from person to person, three of the most common emergency dentistry procedures that we perform at Vitalize Dental include.

When to Call the Emergency Dentist

You will know that you need to see an emergency dentist as soon as possible if you are experiencing severe pain from an injury to your teeth or suffering from sudden and acute toothache. Moreover, if you start suffering from severe tooth pain with no apparent cause, you should always contact your dentist as soon as possible, no matter what time. Also, if you find yourself in an accident with a badly cracked tooth that is either all or partially missing, you should call our office to make an appointment immediately. Additionally, a lost filling, crown, or restoration, as well as objects lodged between teeth, are categorized as emergency dentistry. Common causes of dental injuries include direct hits during sports matches, a fall, or even biting into a hard piece of food.

However, accidents causing broken and chipped teeth sometimes take time for regular business hours to occur. If the injury is a minor crack or fracture and the pain bearable, you might choose to wait until regular opening hours to visit the dentist.

Still, if you can’t get in touch with an emergency dental clinic or need immediate services for severe pain, we suggest visiting the emergency room. Above all, it’s wiser to be safe than sorry. While ER doctors typically do not offer emergency dentistry services, they can help you manage discomfort and infection.
