Urgent care dentistry exists for when you have a situation that needs that immediate attention but is not a life threatening situation. In a life threatening situation or true emergency, the patient should go to the emergency room. Our office offers same day appointments for urgent dental needs, such as when you have a dental infection, swelling or broken teeth that cause you pain. The aim for this type of appointment is to get you out of pain and comfortable as soon as possible.
As anyone who has ever experienced a toothache knows, tooth and gum problems do not work an 8 to 5 schedule. Pain can be a sign of something simple or even something more serious like an infection which leaves you needing more extensive treatment. The only way to know is to get it checked out.
While we are not a 24/7 facility, we keep regular office hours from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday. We also offer extended hours to meet our patients’ needs from 7:30 AM until 7:00 PM Tuesday through Thursday, open early at 7:30 AM on Friday, and are open on selected Saturdays from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM.
We can handle all general and cosmetic dentistry issues such as a basic toothache, a chipped or broken tooth, pain or swelling in your mouth or gums, issues with your fillings or crown or any other immediate dental need. For our recurring cosmetic dentistry patients whose records we maintain, we are happy to provide not only same day appointments but after hours for urgent care needs.
Many people put off going to the dentist due to the pain they anticipate. For those experiencing these issues, we do everything we can to put you at ease, including offering options for sedation dentistry.
