Our team at Alderley Dental understands how scary a dental emergency can be for patients. We never want you to fear for your oral health, and we never want you to stress about the appearance of your smile after a dental emergency.

We can treat your dental emergencies and help you restore your smile after the fact, so you don’t have to worry about an emergency, such as an accident, changing your tooth or gum’s appearance.

The First Step After a Dental Emergency

The first step after any dental emergency is contacting your dentist or a medical professional. When you experience a dental emergency, seeking treatment promptly is usually essential to a good outcome.

For example, when a patient knocks out a tooth, we can sometimes reimplant it if it's preserved properly and the patient arrives for treatment quickly. Infections are also important to treat promptly because they can spread, causing further damage and even leading to serious health problems.

We most commonly see root infections treated with root canal therapy and broken teeth.

When you call our dental practice, we will try to get you in to see our dentist as soon as possible. Once you arrive, we’ll work quickly and efficiently to relieve your pain and resolve your problem. We can also offer advice on dealing with your emergency over the phone, which gives you the best opportunity for a good outcome and often helps reduce discomfort until you reach us.

If your treatment requires more than one visit, we can arrange your follow-up visit while you’re in our practice, making the experience as convenient and easy for you as we can.
