Emergency Care

Emergency dental care is an urgent service during which patients can get assistance with anything that happens to the teeth that needs prompt attention. This can be anything from a lost filling or restoration to a knocked out tooth. When situations such as these occur, patients are encouraged to contact a dental practice with emergency dental care to be seen as soon as possible. This can help in improving overall dental health and even getting patients out of pain they may be feeling from a dental emergency.

We have an answering service available after hours, which can offer patients guidance as to how to handle their situation. In some instances, medication may be prescribed to help patients with pain until they are able to go to our office for help. In other cases, we may advise patients to visit their local emergency room for care, if our practice is not open and we believe such a situation warrants this.

During office hours, we may be able to take patients in for quick fixes, such as lost restorations or a toothache, which may indicate the need for a new filling or root canal therapy.

If you live in the Pittsburgh area and need emergency dental care, contact the team and schedule an appointment or speak to our on-call staff for immediate assistance during the off-hours. We can assist new and existing patients who are in need of help at any time of the day.
