The most important step to take is to call our dental office as soon as you experience a dental injury. Our team will survey the severity of your situation and determine if you should come in right away or use at-home techniques to manage your case until it’s time to see Dr. Knott. When arriving for your appointment, we will escort you to a treatment room and take any necessary digital x-rays. We’ll quickly work to mitigate any pain or discomfort before examining the underlying problem and recommending viable treatment options.

Whether it is with antibiotics, periodontal therapy, dental crowns, dental fillings, root canals, or tooth extractions, you can trust our team to review the prospective plan to ensure you face no surprises along the way.

The Most Common Dental Emergencies

There are various types of dental emergencies, such as toothaches, knocked-out teeth, lost dental restorations, jaw pain, chipped or cracked teeth, and even tooth sensitivity. Because each one requires its own method of treatment, you will need to contact us as soon as possible to determine how to manage the situation at home and when to see Dr. Knott.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Only until she examines the problem area can she recommend the appropriate treatment.
