Girl Suffering From Tooth Pain at homeAt Hillsborough Family Dentistry of Omaha, NE, our dentists understand that dental issues can arise when we least expect them. This is why our team is committed to offering emergency dentistry for both current and new patients. Emergency dental care is often needed in situations where immediate attention is needed from a dental professional to protect and restore the smile when problems occur.

What are some common dental emergencies?

Our dental team has seen it all, and we can handle any dental emergency situation that might arise for our patients. Let's explore some of the more common dental emergencies seen at our offices:

  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Bleeding and swelling
  • Lost or damaged dental fillings
  • Persistent toothache
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Infection and inflammation

Should I see an emergency dentist?

To determine if you truly need same-day dental care, start by calling Hillsborough Family Dentistry to discuss your situation. If our phone providers determine that you would benefit from immediate care at one of our four office locations, they can direct you to the nearest practice for assistance. Any recommendations that may benefit the patient may be discussed during that time. For example, if you have knocked a tooth out from the socket, you may be able to improve the chances of reattachment by visiting the office within an hour and placing the tooth back into the natural socket if possible.
