Generally speaking, a dental emergency refers to any problem that needs immediate treatment. This may be to stop bleeding, alleviate severe tooth pain, treat a tooth infection, or save a damaged tooth.
Dental emergencies are more common than you might think! We treat a wide range of common emergencies, such as dental infections, bleeding in your teeth or gums, mouth sores, knocked-out teeth, and chipped, cracked, or broken teeth.
Dr. Lin and our team will do everything we can to see you ASAP! Walk-ins are accepted as scheduling permits, and we try to fit same-day or next-day appointments in whenever possible. We can’t guarantee appointment times, so be sure to call us in case of an accident or emergency.
While we understand your first instinct is to go to the hospital when you’ve suffered a dental injury, don’t! Hospital emergency rooms are designed to help patients with medical emergencies, but they can’t treat your dental emergency. Unless you’re experiencing uncontrolled bleeding or swelling, call our office right away. Dr. Lin has the training and facilities needed to treat your symptoms and provide relief.
