What is considered a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies are not always easy to diagnose, which is why we recommend giving our office a call so our team can help you decide what to do next. The following situations almost always require immediate attention:

  • Severe Pain or Swelling
  • Cracked or Broken Tooth
  • Dislodged Tooth
  • Dental Abscess
  • Uncontrollable Bleeding
  • Object Stuck Between Teeth

Should I go to the emergency room or visit an emergency dentist?

If an injury or issue is tooth, gum, or mouth-related, you will almost always want to make an appointment with an emergency dentist rather than visiting an emergency room. This is because most emergency rooms are not equipped to handle dental emergencies, and most ER staff members don’t have the knowledge or experience necessary to treat dental emergencies. If you are unsure of what to do, you are always welcome to give our office a call to get advice from our team. If you have any other injuries that are more urgent than your dental-related emergency, then we recommend visiting the emergency room first.


Is emergency dental care affordable?

When a dental emergency arises, we always recommend that patients seek treatment as soon as possible, and our team will help you find a budget-friendly payment option afterward. In general, the earlier a patient can have their issue treated, the more options that are available that might be less invasive and less costly. Riverstone Dental Care is a very insurance-friendly practice, and we also accept FSAs and HSAs and payment plans through CareCredit®.
