Sometimes, you can't wait for an appointment. If you need to see a dentist as soon as possible, you’re likely going to want to book an emergency exam.

When Are Emergency Exams Necessary?

There are many reasons why a patient might need an emergency exam, but the most common ones are:

There are preventative steps you can take to avert some of these issues, such as brushing and flossing regularly to avoid severe mouth pain. But there are also unforeseen accidents that necessitate an emergency exam.

We typically recommend visiting a dentist instead of an ER in these situations. Our expertise means we’re better equipped to handle dental emergencies.

What Makes an Emergency Exam Different Than a Regular Exam?

The most notable difference between an emergency exam and a regular one is time. If you need an appointment, we’ll see you as soon as possible.

This also means we won’t be performing a regular inspection to ascertain your oral health. Instead, we’ll focus exclusively on the issue that brought you into the office in the first place.

Every situation is different, but our goal is to ensure that an accident or undiagnosed issue has the smallest possible impact on your oral health.
