The nature of your dental emergency dictates what happens during your dental emergency in Eagan, MN. However, we always use a gentle hand and work fast to eliminate your pain and reverse your dental emergency.

Our team knows how frightening and inconvenient dental emergencies can be, so we set aside time to treat these unexpected issues daily.

What Is Considered a Dental Emergency in Eagan, MN?

A dental emergency can mean many things, but as a rule, if a situation poses a risk to your oral health or causes discomfort, we want to see you.

Examples of dental emergencies include:

  • You have a toothache with or without gum or face swelling
  • You knocked out or broke a tooth or dental restoration
  • You have an object lodged in the soft tissues or between teeth

It’s also possible that you have an oral health change that is not improving, or you’re unsure whether your situation is a dental emergency. In this case, we encourage you to contact a team member for advice.

Your Dental Emergency Appointment

At your emergency dental visit, we assess your situation as quickly as possible, especially if you are in pain. Steps might include dental x-rays if the cause of your pain isn’t immediately apparent. Then we begin treatment to reverse your emergency.

Sometimes, we relieve your pain but continue treatment on a different day. For example, a root canal treatment for a deep tooth infection requires two visits to the dental office, but we will not send you home in pain.
