The big thing about dental emergencies is just taking patients out of pain and making them as comfortable as possible. The first way to do that is to just bring them in as soon as we can get them to come in, so we see patients for emergencies every day at the patient's earliest convenience and get them in right away. Once they're in the office, I just like to make patients as comfortable as possible and we'll take a look and we'll see if we can find out what's happening. We'll just kind of make a plan together with the patient and we'll just move forward to take the patient out of pain because I think the number one thing we can do as dentists is to just make our patients comfortable. And so when they leave here, they feel good, they're happy, and they feel comfortable.

Take Your Dental Emergency Seriously And Seek Treatment!
A dental emergency isn’t the same thing as a medical emergency. If you think you’re in immediate danger or are unable to stop bleeding from your mouth, please visit your closest emergency room. If you’re not in immediate danger and you’re experiencing one or more of the symptoms below, call North Bay Dental.
- A cracked, chipped, or broken tooth
- A knocked-out tooth or loose tooth
- A painful or aching tooth
You should also call us if you ever have a tooth filling, dental crown or bridge, or dental veneer come loose or come out completely. The faster we do the repair, the less likely you are to have any complications.
Save your smile and get out of pain during dental emergencies. Call North Bay Dental at 262-417-7326.
