When to See a Dentist: what is considered a dental emergency?
Pain, swelling, or broken teeth can all be considered dental emergencies.
A timeline for when you should go to the dentist is mainly based on the severity of your dental emergency.
A series of questions are asked to ascertain the urgency of being seen the same day vs. next day.
Here at DGY Dentistry, our overall approach to dental emergencies is to get you comfortable quickly, while informing you of your options for treatment and their costs.

Emergency Dental Services
DGY Dentistry Ann Arbor provides services to address dental emergencies such as:.
- Missing tooth or teeth
- Severe toothache
- Chipped tooth
- Lost filling or crown
Missing Tooth or Missing Teeth
Patients often lose a tooth as a result of sports injury or other impact. Our dentists can immediately place a temporary tooth and manage all stages of a dental implant.
This initial step in the implant process is a surgical placement, which takes approximately 90 minutes for a single implant. After 4-6 months for healing and integration, the patient will return for the uncovering and fabrication of the abutment and crown, followed by the cementation of a new tooth/crown 4 weeks later.
This process gives patients the most attractive and stable result. When properly cared for, an implant restoration can last for decades.
Serious tooth pain can be caused by a number of factors. The dentists at DGY Dentistry Ann Arbor provide a complete examination to diagnose the issue and alleviate your pain.
Some common reasons for extreme tooth pain include:
- Tooth breaking
- Lost filling
- Crown off
- Temperature sensitivity
The source of your severe toothache will determine how urgent it is that you need to be seen.
A chipped tooth can be painful and alter the appearance of your smile. Our dentists are experienced in a number of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures to repair chips and create a more natural look. Tooth-covered bending and porcelain veneers can be used to close spaces between teeth and repair snipped or broken edges.
Lost Filling or Crown
Lost fillings or crowns can expose tissue and cause sensitivity or pain. Our dentists can quickly replace the missing filling or crown so you can move forward with a complete and pain-free smile.
How to avoid dental emergencies
There are some precautions you can take to help avoid dental emergencies.
- Wear a mouthguard when playing sports
- Don’t use your teeth to tear open packages or remove bottle caps
- Avoid chewing hard candy, ice, and other hard foods that can chip and damage teeth
- Practice good dental habits and attend preventative dental cleanings to keep on top of any potential dental issues
- Schedule an appointment with your dentist when you first start noticing severe pain in your teeth or gums so issues can be addressed promptly, before it becomes an emergency
