Dental Situations That Aren't Emergencies
Missing Crown - If you are not experiencing pain after losing your crown, it is most likely not a dental emergency. It is important to contact one of our dental clinics to schedule an appointment with your dentist.
Chipped Tooth - If have a chipped tooth but do not have any pain, it may not be a emergency. We recommend that you contact your clinic or a clinic location near you to schedule an appointment with one of our family dentists.
Missing Filling - If you have no pain when your filling falls out, assess the area closely. Is your tooth broken? Are you in pain? Is your face or gum swelling? If none of these things apply to your situation, it is probably not a dental emergency.
