We will try to see you as soon as possible, generally on the same day. Even though we set aside emergency time for each day sometimes our appointment books are so busy that unfortunately, we may be unable to get you in until the next day. In these circumstances, we will contact you immediately if a sooner time becomes available.

Jaw pain can happen for a number of different reasons. It can be related to a tooth. It may be from a gum or bone infection. It can also be because you have been clenching or grinding your teeth. Whenever you have jaw pain it is important to see a dentist so that the origin of this pain can be diagnosed and  appropriate treatment options can be discussed.

Any time that a filling is lost or a tooth is broken, it is important to arrange an appointment with a dentist as soon as possible. This is even the case if the tooth is not sore or sensitive. The sooner the tooth can be treated, the less chance there is of the situation becoming a true emergency. Also, if treatment is sought quickly, the restoration is likely to be more routine and less expensive.
