What's a Dental Emergency?

Every dental emergency is unique, but they always center upon a significant issue that negatively impacts your jaws, gums, or teeth. In most cases, resolving your situation requires immediate medical attention. Dental emergencies include:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • A dislodged tooth
  • A fractured tooth
  • A knocked-out tooth
  • An abscess in the gums
  • Prolonged bleeding from the gums
  • Damaged or lost dental restorations

If you or a loved one is experiencing one or more of these conditions, contact our team immediately to schedule an appointment with our dentist.

Providing Quality Care When You Need It

When possible, we'll see you the day of your accident so Dr. Karale can begin providing  treatment immediately. Otherwise, our team will set you up with the soonest possible appointment. Even after the office closes, our emergency dentist in Phoenix is still on-call to talk through your situation and provide advice to help you manage any discomfort. 

You can trust that our team has your best interests in mind. Our goal is to restore your smile's appearance and function with precise treatments that match your needs. Whether you're suffering from a toothache, a broken restoration, or a cracked tooth, we're prepared to provide efficient and attentive care.

Saving an Infected Tooth with Root Canal Therapy

If you're experiencing sudden pain in your tooth, you may be dealing with an infection. To preserve the afflicted tooth, our emergency dentist in Phoenix may recommend root canal therapy. Dr. Karale begins the procedure by removing plaque, bacteria, and organic matter from inside your tooth. We then use a filling or dental crown to seal the tooth and reduce the risk of future infections.

We encourage you to contact our practice as soon as you notice unusual tooth pain, so we can determine the cause of the problem and respond appropriately. Symptoms to be aware of include:

  • Tooth pain while eating
  • An abscess on the gums
  • Tenderness or swelling of the gums
  • Sudden tooth discoloration

Repairing a Damaged Tooth with a Dental Crown

Your custom-fitted crown surrounds your damaged tooth, restoring its size, shape, and appearance. A crown can alleviate your pain and discomfort after an accident or injury, allowing you to resume regular activities free of distraction.

Replacing Damaged Restorations

If you have a crown or bridge that's become damaged or dislodged, we can have a replacement created for you. On average, it takes two weeks for a local lab to craft your new restoration. In the meantime, we'll place a temporary restoration to allow you to eat, drink, and speak comfortably. We'll contact you as soon as your crown or bridge arrives, and our dentist will secure it in place in our office.

Performing Extractions to Preserve Your Dental Health

Whenever possible, our emergency dentist in Phoenix strives to keep your natural teeth in place. If you have a tooth that is significantly infected or broken beyond repair, we may suggest an extraction to maintain your dental well-being. We perform most extractions in-house, including the removal of impacted and wisdom teeth. Once the afflicted tooth is removed, we'll discuss options to restore your smile's structure, appearance, and alignment with a custom-fitted restoration.
