Just yesterday, we had a lady come in. She gave us a call. She was traveling through town on her way to Red Lodge for a wedding. She called us. She had a tooth broken off right in the middle of her mouth, right smack in the middle of her smile. She was going to have a hillbilly smile for these pictures, and she was mortified. We worked them into our schedule, and we were able to spend about a good hour and a half with her and rebuild this whole tooth so that she can now smile for the pictures for her wedding. We specifically designed our schedule so that we can get people in immediately if necessary, even if it means tweaking our schedule a little bit, or staying late, or missing a lunch, or whatever we have to do. When people really need your help, they need it now. We strive to accommodate that.

You may be wondering if your situation constitutes an emergency or not. If you are in severe pain or if your situation falls into one of the following 4 categories, please call us right away for an emergency appointment. The sooner you call, the less time you are in pain, and the greater chance we have to save a damaged tooth.

Examples of dental emergencies:

  • An adult tooth is knocked out or falls out for any reason.
  • Your tooth has been damaged. If your tooth has been cracked, fractured, or otherwise damaged, please call us as soon as possible. The sooner we see you, the more likely it is that we will be able to save your tooth.
  • You have experienced tissue damage. If you have experienced an injury to your tongue or other tissue in your mouth, we need to see you as soon as possible. Remember that excessive bleeding indicates the need to visit an emergency room.
  • You are in pain. Call us if you are in pain due to any dental issue. We will work with you to get your problem solved and get you feeling better.
