Emergency Dental Care

Emergency Dental Care

If you have a dental emergency, it is best to call your dentist and discuss the situation over the phone. It can be determined if you need to be seen immediately or if the care can wait until the office is open during regular hours. Dental emergencies can be seen in local hospital emergency rooms but generally only very limited care can be provided.

These are the top five dental emergencies:

  • Toothache with no visible swelling
  • Dental abscess (pain, swelling or draining infection)
  • Dental trauma (fractured, displaced or avulsed teeth)
  • Fractured tooth/lost filling/loss of a crown
  • Damaged dental prosthesis (denture fractured/ veneer fractured/ orthodontic wire or appliance issue)

If you are seeking emergency care, please call 502-852-5096 or go to the nearest hospital emergency room. We only provide emergency treatment by appointment. The school does not accept walk-in patients.
