Dental Emergencies


What is a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is any situation that poses an immediate threat to the health of your teeth and supporting tissues.  Dental emergencies are often the result of impact to the mouth, but they also can be caused by infection.  To ensure the best possible outcome, any dental emergency should be evaluated by a professional immediately.

How soon should I be seen?

If you are experiencing a dental emergency, we recommend you contact your general dentist first.  Your general dentist will be able to advise what your treatment options are and if necessary will refer you to us.  If your dentist wants you to be seen in our office, we will try to accommodate a same-day emergency appointment.

After Hours Emergencies:

For patients of record that are experiencing a dental emergency after hours such as pain, swelling, infection, or trauma, please call the phone number of the location (Fayetteville, North Syracuse, Oneida, Camillus) that your doctor normally treats you at.
