What Is an Emergency Dentist?
An emergency dentist is an oral health professional who specializes in immediate dental care for patients who cannot wait until regular office hours to be seen. They can help patients with emergency or urgent dental needs, such as an abscessed tooth, broken crowns or fillings, and root canal pain. At Victory Plaza Dental, our emergency dentists are available 24/7 to provide emergency care when our patients need it most. In many cases, having quick and effective treatment can make a powerful difference in the health of your teeth.

Emergency Dentistry Services
At Victory Plaza Dental, we offer emergency dental care to help our patients in their time of need. We provide emergency diagnosis, treatment planning, and emergency pain relief services. Our emergency dentists are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to meet your urgent needs. We also offer emergency surgical services, and you can find some of the most common services below.
While tooth extractions are always a last resort, they may prove necessary in some situations where the specific tooth is extremely damaged or decays. Emergency tooth extractions focus on preserving the patient’s overall oral and physical well being.
Root Canal Treatment
In many cases, a root canal is a routine procedure, but it can also be an emergency procedure if a patient has been putting off treatment. In these instances, a root canal may need to be performed quickly to save the tooth and preserve oral health.
If a filling has broken or fallen out, you may need to replace it sooner rather than later. A missing filling exposes the inner part of your tooth to bacteria and needs to be replaced as soon as possible.
Another emergency solution for a damaged or decayed tooth can be a same-day dental crown to protect the tooth until later treatment. Crowns are prosthetics that we place over a damaged tooth to restore both its appearance and function, and they can be temporary or permanent, depending on your needs.
If you are experiencing severe tooth pain, the odds are that you need a visit to our emergency dentist. We can examine your situation and prescribe a path of treatment that will provide symptom relief and preserve your health. A toothache can all too often be a sign of a more significant problem, such as an infection or severe decay.
Signs You Have a Dental Emergency
If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, it can be difficult to know what to do in the moment. However, our advice is that if your situation looks or feels like an emergency, it is at least worth contacting our office. If any of the following symptoms occur, contact us immediately for emergency care:
- Severe toothache or pain (signs of infection)
