Incase of dental emergencies getting fast dental treatment can often mean the difference between losing and keeping a tooth, or between quickly clearing up an infection and facing more serious health risks.

Knowing that there’s someone you can call if you need to, is a good feeling, because you never know what could happen. At Smilekraft Dentistry, we’re always ready to help when a dental emergency arises. Situations can happen where a sudden flare-up of infection in a tooth can cause unbearable pain and injury can dislodge or loosen one of your teeth and only quick action can save it; a filling, veneer or crown can suddenly fall out.
All of these things are dental emergencies that often cannot wait until normal office hours. When the problem is extreme pain caused by an abscessed tooth or gum infection, we can usually prescribe you something to ease the pain until you can get to us during office hours. Broken teeth, broken dentures, or dislodged fillings and crowns have to be taken care of immediately in order to get the best possible results.

Many times, there are things that you can do at home to help with the situation until you can see us, and we’ll let you know what those things are.
