My experience one more time was excellent. From the receptionist area all the way to the back room, Eva is my dental hygienist and the level of comfort with her it's what I was looking for, she is very gentle and attentive with my needs, the Dr. has a great patient skills communication, and this to me is priceless. I had a horrible experience with my last dentist, I am so glad that I found this great group of professionals that make every visit to their office like I am home. Thank you so much for all the care and concern for your patients, many blessings and keep it up! ;-)

Emergency Dentistry

Unexpected dental emergencies can happen to anyone, at any time—day or night. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to see a dentist right away because of a toothache, an infection, a broken tooth, or an injury, get in touch with our office immediately. Getting treatment right away versus waiting can mean the difference between saving a tooth and losing one.

The team at North Shore Center of Dental Health is available to see you on the same day. Count on us for immediate and compassionate emergency dental care.

Why You Might Need an Emergency Dentist

Many patients wait until the pain from a toothache is so bad that they can no longer bear it, and they need to see a dentist immediately.

The culprit of a toothache that does not go away is usually decay that has developed in the pulp of the tooth. In this case, a root canal is warranted. Gum infections or abscesses are another possible cause. Sometimes patients get toothaches because they have lost a filling or a filling has become cracked or damaged.

If you have been in an accident or have been hit in the mouth, you might need immediate care if a tooth has broken or fallen out. If your tooth has been knocked out of its socket, call us right away. If you can, put the tooth back into the socket. If that is not possible, keep the tooth moist by putting it into milk or into your mouth next to your cheek until you can get in for an appointment.

What You Can Do to Avoid Dental Emergencies

One of the most common reasons patients develop dental emergencies is because they avoid routine dental checkups and examinations. Either they have fear of the dentist or they just let the busy-ness of life prevent them from keeping regular appointments. Don’t let small issues grow into big problems. By keeping up to date with your dental exams, x-rays, and cleanings, we can often detect issues while they are still easy, inexpensive, and relatively painless to deal with.

Contact Your Emergency Dentist Day or Night

When dental emergencies happen, you can count on us at North Shore Center of Dental Health. Whether it is during the week or on a weekend, don’t hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to see you on the same day as your emergency. Just give us a call!
