Emergency Dentist in Baton Rouge

Immediate Dental Treatment

If you notice sudden pain in your tooth or have been in an accident where a tooth has been damaged, having an on-call dentist is critical. Some dental emergencies need to be attended to immediately and, in some cases, if left untreated, can worsen the pain and disrupt day-to-day life. Our compassionate and gentle dentists know how to treat emergencies with urgency and quality care. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you think you may be experiencing unusual discomfort and inflammation, as it’s common for patients to wait out the pain and hope it will resolve on its own. Your best bet is to not take any chances and take precaution as soon as possible.

What’s Considered a Dental Emergency?

If you’re unsure whether your dental issue is an emergency, give us a call anyway. We’ll ask you a series of questions that can help us determine whether or not you need to see our emergency dentist. Dental mishaps are most often due to an ongoing tooth issue that was never treated. The beginning phases of a more serious dental problem start with throbbing aches that increasingly get worse with time.

Other common dental emergencies include:

  • Unusual tooth discoloration
  • Lost or broken dental restoration
  • Extreme tooth sensitivity
  • Excessive bleeding gums
  • Knocked out tooth
  • Severe broken, chipped, cracked teeth

Same-Day Dentistry

In the event of a serious dental problem, try to remain calm and keep a clear perspective. It’s normal to feel stressed when experiencing pain in your mouth and we encourage you to call us as soon as you feel signs of discomfort. You can rest assured that no matter how severe your issue may be, you’ll walk away feeling better abut your situation and how you can begin the healing process. We proudly offer same-day appointments to ensure our patients get immediate help in the most extreme cases.
