You bite down on your pencil, and break your tooth – the night before a big presentation at work.
You had to get the chewy candy at that midnight movie festival, and now your filling is gone.
Emergency dental care is a service we hope you’ll never need – but if you do, it can be a lifesaver.
Toothache: There are many reasons to seek emergency dental care. Sometimes, the pain of existing problems such as abscesses, swollen gums or infected mouth cuts can be too much to bear. Immediate relief from prescription-strength analgesics can become a necessity until the patient can be treated during office hours.
Any kind of tooth damage — broken dentures, loose or lost crowns or fillings, or a broken tooth — should be taken care of immediately, but doesn’t always happen at the most convenient time.
If you are in need of emergency dental care, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will try to have you smiling or out of pain as quickly as possible. Dr. Hofmann does not take insurance on Saturdays and after hours. We will, however, file your insurance for you if you wish for us to do so. I do take calls after hours and can see emergencies when the time is appropriate.
