They can happen in the blink of an eye. All it takes is one moment when a player takes her eyes off the ball … when two people collide due to being distracted … when you bite into something that is harder than you expected.

Address The Problem
During any emergency dental situation, we want to do a few things:
- End your pain
- Keep you as relaxed as possible
- Address the immediate problem
- Then, discuss your options to repair your smile
Our team has more than 50 years of combined experience helping patients with a wide range of dental problems. Whether you have a broken tooth, a toothache, missing teeth, or a broken dental appliance, we want to get your mouth back in shape.
With our many restorative services, we can give you a natural-looking smile once again and help you eat without pain or other problems.
We also know that anxiety can be high when someone needs emergency dental care. To help ease those feelings, we offer local anesthetic to block pain and oral sedation to help you relax.
Find The Solution
After we address your immediate problem and stop any pain, we can discuss your options for long-term solutions.
If you have a toothache, the treatment can vary. In some cases, a dental filling may be all you need. Our fillings are made with composite resin, so you can eat painlessly and have a natural smile again. For larger cavities, a dental crown may be necessary to repair your tooth.
If the toothache is severe, it may be the result of an infection. In those cases, a root canal may be necessary to remove the infected tissue from your mouth.
For a broken tooth, a dental crown is a common cure. Crowns restore your ability to bite and chew and they protect your tooth from additional problems. If the broken tooth is closer to the front of your mouth, you might want to consider a dental veneer instead.
If you have lost a tooth or teeth, we do recommend replacement what’s missing as soon as you are able. Whether you need to replace one tooth, a row of teeth, or something in between, dental implants can help. Implants are artificial roots. They keep a crown, bridge, or dentures securely in place, so they can function practically as well as real teeth.
