What Causes a Dental Emergency?
Dental emergencies can occur if you have an accident or you experience sudden pain.
In many cases, dental emergencies can be prevented with routine care, but sometimes patients stay away from the dentist because of fear or financial concerns. In other cases, an unexpected event can occur – an accident, biting into something hard, or even breaking a dental restoration such as a crown or filling.
The best approach to a dental emergency is to contact us at the first sign that something is wrong. That way, we can make sure you get the care you need fast. Dental pain does not usually go away on its own.

Your Dental Emergency Appointment
The goals of your dental emergency appointment will include:
- Stabilizing your condition
- Eliminating pain
- Planning long-term treatment
In some cases, we will provide full treatment at the time of your dental emergency. Other times, we will reduce your pain, stabilize your tooth, and schedule a follow-up dental appointment to complete treatment.
Our dentists, Dr. Wang and Dr. Ma, will take an x-ray of the troubled area to assist with accurate diagnosis. Then, they will take the time to discuss your condition and some of the ways that we can make you feel better and improve your health.
We often have follow-up appointments or post-treatment phone calls made by our doctors after a procedure to make sure our patients are well taken care of and on the right track. Our dentists take the extra time for care at no extra cost because we understand the frustration when you have a question and not be able to talk to your doctor right away.
We are always happy to help and guide our patients through different dental conditions step-by-step.
