Dental Emergencies Somerset KYWe understand that dental emergencies can arise at any time. Even if you are diligent with your care and have relatively good dental health, you can have an unexpected and often painful experience at just about any moment.

We never want our patients to act tough and suffer through unnecessary dental pain. Pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is seriously wrong and needs your attention. At the first sign of discomfort, give us a call. We can ask questions that will help us understand what might be happening and how we should address your particular situation.

If you break a tooth, lose a filling, lose a crown, or if you have unexplained dental pain, calling us right away can help us treat you better.

If your dental emergency is part of an accident and you have uncontrolled or excessive bleeding, a head injury, or feel dizzy, you should go to the nearest emergency room because you may have more serious injuries that take priority over your dental health. 

If we see you in our office for an emergency exam, we will focus on relieving your pain, stabilizing the situation, and determining the next best step for treatment. 

When in doubt, always give us a call. We are here to help.
