Emergency Dentistry

A knocked-out tooth, severe toothache, or sudden injury can be alarming, but a dentist can protect your smile from more serious damage.

Dr. Peter Jeppsen treats many types of common dental emergencies so patients can quickly find relief from pain and other symptoms.

What are the benefits of getting emergency dental care as soon as possible? 

Emergency Dental Care Protects Your Oral & Overall Health

Prevent More Serious Concerns

Infected teeth will not resolve on their own. Left untreated, this concern and other dental conditions, such as a broken or knocked-out tooth, can lead to further tooth loss or more serious health issues. By addressing trauma as soon as possible, a dentist also has the best chances of replanting or otherwise repairing the tooth.

Save Money on Future Treatments

The more progressed your dental health issues are, the more extensive your restorative care will typically need to be. By treating your dental emergency early on, you reduce the risk of needing more invasive – and expensive – treatment in the future. Plus, some procedures, like dental implants for missing teeth, are not covered by insurance. 

Restore Your Comfort

An emergency root canal or dental crown can help you find immediate relief and often save your tooth from extraction. And while Dr. Jeppsen will always try to save your natural teeth, there are some situations where a tooth extraction can provide lasting relief and dramatically improve your quality of life. We can recommend a trusted specialist if this is the case.
