What happens during your appointment for a Dental Emergency?
We will begin by sitting you comfortably in one of our dental rooms. We will ask about the emergency so we can fully understand the problem is that’s affecting you. We may take x-rays to help identify the underlying issue and create a treatment plan. An examination is done to find the problem and begin the treatment that’s needed. If there’s an infection, we may suggest antibiotics before any additional work is done. The emergency appointment is quick and easy, and we offer this type of care to both new and existing patients.
