Do you see dental emergencies?

When you experience a dental emergency—whether you break a tooth or have a toothache—all you can think about is getting help and relief. At Vermont Hills Family Dental, we offer emergency dentistry for patients in Portland and surrounding areas who can’t wait for treatment.

Call us to resolve whatever situation you’re facing, and we'll provide the prompt treatment and relief you need.

Some of the most common dental emergencies we treat are:

  • Broken teeth
  • Lost crowns or fillings
  • Toothaches
  • Jaw pain or swelling
  • Bleeding or swollen gums
  • Infected or abscessed tooth
  • Dental trauma

Critical emergencies that require prompt treatment include tooth pain, jaw pain, or abscessed teeth. Dental trauma such as knocked-out teeth must be treated immediately to avoid long-term damage to your oral health.

The first step is always to call us first and let us know what’s happening. You may not have the presence of mind to think clearly, and our dental team can help you.

They will explain how you can deal with your emergency until we see you and schedule you for our next available appointment. If you are in pain, we will do everything we can to see you the same day and provide the prompt treatment and relief you need.

Dental emergencies are no fun. You have the stress of the event itself and the uncertainty about the outcome. Please don’t wait to call us if you are experiencing an oral health emergency. We will provide the reassurance you need and arrange to resolve your problem as quickly as possible.
