SCHEDULING YOUR EMERGENCY DENTAL APPOINTMENT:
We understand that you are in pain and will do everything we can to see you the same day or during emergency hours to help you find relief. To access emergency hour information and instructions, call us at (203) 292-9292 as soon as severe tooth pain occurs.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR APPOINTMENT:
First, we will take x-rays to determine whether there are any signs of fracture or infection in or around your teeth. We will then work to resolve the underlying problem. Treatment may include a visit to the endodontist for an emergency root canal, which usually alleviates the pain almost instantly. Occasionally, if the tooth cannot be saved, we will discuss the possibility for extraction.
