More often than not, these types of dental emergencies are unpleasant surprises that catch us off guard. Dental emergencies can range from tooth pain and excessive bleeding to knocked out and missing teeth. No matter what your emergency is, Scripps Rock Dental is here for you in your time of need. We want you to feel confident that you will receive prompt, top-tier emergency dentistry from our expert staff.

When Do You Need Emergency Dental Care?

There are many situations that may require immediate dental care. However, not everyone knows when a situation calls for immediate attention. This can endanger the tooth, your gums, and your oral health in general. Take a look at some of the situations in which emergency dental care is necessary:

Chipped Teeth

  • It’s best to take care of a chipped tooth as soon as possible, as dentin exposure can lead to much more serious problems.

Broken Teeth

  • Just like with chipped teeth, a broken tooth or teeth should be looked at by a dentist right away.

Knocked-Out Tooth

  • To save a tooth that has been knocked out, it is imperative that you see a dentist within an hour of the incident

Broken Restorations

  • Broken crowns, bridges, veneers, and fillings are also cause to seek emergency dental care.

Scripps Rock Dental Can Help

At Scripps Rock Dental, we work quickly to make sure your teeth and gums aren’t compromised in a dental emergency. Here are just some of the ways we can help in an emergency:

Address Immediate Problems

  • In most emergency dental situations, time is of the essence. Our walk-in emergency dental care will allow you to come in without an appointment.

Same-Day Dental Care
