Your Dental Emergency Can’t Wait

We understand how scary it can be when a serious dental problem occurs. Our experienced and compassionate emergency dentists will do everything we can to make your experience as quick, comfortable, & stress-free as possible. We’ll customize a solution to meet your individual needs and provide a calming environment for your emergency care. 

Dental emergencies are just as serious as medical emergencies and should not be taken lightly. Any condition or accident that results in bleeding, swelling or damage to the teeth and surrounding soft tissues of the oral cavity, is considered a dental emergency and must be dealt with in a timely manner. 

If damaged tissues, bleeding and swelling are not tended to properly, they may give rise to various potentially harmful complications. 

This is why the emergency dentists at Meng Dentistry strive to ensure that all our channels of communication are always open for our patients – whenever the need arises. From swift appointment scheduling to over-the-phone care instructions, we’ll go the extra mile to make sure you feel better following any dental emergency. If you ever find yourself in an accident, or a situation where you have sustained damage to the soft or hard tissues of the mouth, call us immediately and we’ll take care of the rest.

What conditions are considered dental emergencies?

Some common dental emergency situations that require immediate attention from an emergency dentist include:

  • Accidents resulting in soft tissue cuts and lacerations
  • Tooth avulsions (tooth falling out of their sockets) due to direct trauma or falls
  • Acute, sharp pain
  • Blows to the face that might result in severe tooth mobility
  • Severe, uncontrolled bleeding from the mouth
  • Swelling or ballooning of the oral soft tissues following trauma
  • Horizontal and vertical dental fractures

What should I do if my tooth falls out of the socket?

The first thing to remember is to remain calm. Next, make haste in locating the tooth and immediately place soak this tooth in your saliva, milk or saline solution in a clean container. You can also simply put the tooth in your mouth, where it will be surrounded by your saliva – but be very careful not to swallow it. If you can manage to follow these steps and make your way to our clinic, we can replant this tooth in the same socket using a splint, and it will heal within two weeks.

Is the clinic open in the evening or night for dental emergencies?

The office may be closed but you can call us. Our team will go the extra mile to make sure you get the medical attention and care you need, regardless of the time. We’ll give you step-by-step instructions and guidelines on how to manage your dental emergency till the office reopens. Our emergency patients do not require appointments and are our top priority when they visit the office.
