When to Seek Emergency Dental Care

Life-Threatening Condition

In potentially life-threatening situations, it is crucial to seek emergency care immediately. Suppose you experience uncontrollable bleeding, severe bacterial infections, or an injury resulting in broken facial bones. In that case, it is critical to call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room without delay. These situations require immediate medical attention to ensure your safety and well-being.

Broken or Loose Teeth

A dental emergency involving broken or loose teeth should be addressed promptly. Depending on the severity of the damage, our skilled professionals will assess the situation and determine the appropriate course of action. In some cases, broken teeth can be salvaged, while loose teeth may require stabilization to promote root healing. After emergency dental care is delivered and pain is resolved, our team can help restore your smile with a wide variety of dental and cosmetic restorations including dental implants, crowns, veneers and more.


Persistent and painful toothaches can indicate underlying issues such as a severe cavity or infection. Our dental team will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays, to identify the cause of your toothache and develop an effective treatment plan to alleviate your pain and address the underlying problem.

Missing Fillings

While not immediately life-threatening, a lost filling exposes sensitive tooth structures. It can lead to complications such as cavities or infections. Seeking prompt care is essential to protect and cover these vulnerable areas. Our experienced team will quickly identify the issue and provide effective treatment options to restore your tooth’s function and integrity.

Dr. Lee was incredibly kind, clear, and thorough when I went for a consultation. Doctors who spend time explaining things to a patient and giving them the best and most affordable options do not abound these days. He is very smart too. Strongly recommended!
