When a dental emergency arises, contact Advanced Family Dentistry & Braces, we will do our best to help as soon as possible. Frequently, patients view a dental emergency very differently from a medical emergency and not seek help. This is because a dental emergency is rarely a life-threatening problem, or the patient doesn’t view it as a health risk, we have seen many patients try to ignore problems. At Advanced Family Dentistry & Braces, we don’t recommend ignoring tooth pain, a knocked out tooth or a cracked and fractured tooth, there are steps that we can take to alleviate the pain and provide function after it has been lost, and in some cases the symptom is a small bit of a larger problem.
