Emergency Dental Care

While we encourage you to visit our office on a regular basis for routine cleanings and checkups, we understand that you cannot always plan when you will need to visit the dentist. If you experience a dental emergency, you may feel uncertain of what you should do. In the case of an emergency situation, we urge you to contact our office as soon as you can. Dr. Shane S. Porter is pleased to provide emergency dentistry so you have a solution for all of your dental needs, at any time. We are happy to provide care for a number of dental emergencies, including:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Cracked or fractured teeth
  • Partially knocked-out (extruded) teeth
  • Lost or damaged dental restorations (such as a filling or crown)
  • An object stuck between the teeth that does not come loose with gentle flossing
  • A severe, lasting toothache or tooth pain
  • Injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth (such as a the gums, lips, cheeks, or tongue)

If you have experienced trauma to the head or neck, we recommend that you go to your primary care physician or the emergency room before calling your dentist, even if your smile has also been injured.
