We understand that emergencies can happen at any time. Some dental injuries require immediate treatment, and when that is the case, the team at Regency Family Dental will work to see you as quickly as possible.
Some of the most common dental injuries include broken, chipped or knocked out teeth, toothaches, abscesses and lost crowns. These may be a result of chewing something hard, a sports-related injury, a fall, or some other type of accident. If immediate attention is required, call us as soon as possible. Try to stay calm, and focus on stopping any bleeding and protecting the tooth or area affected. If an emergency is life-threatening, dial 911 or go to a hospital emergency room.
