Emergency Dental Care

icon-uc-dental University City Pennsylvania Dental is available 24/7 for any dental emergencies!

Have you ever been eating something hard or crunchy and suddenly one of your teeth cracks?  Or you are awakened in the middle of the night  with sharp pain or swelling in your jaw?

Unfortunately, dental emergencies can be an unexpected part of life. Hey, it happens!  Fortunately our practice is available 24/7 for these unfortunate occurrences. If you experience significant pain in a tooth with no apparent cause, you should call us and not suffer with the pain. Tooth pain should never be ignored and can result in more serious conditions if you neglect to get it treated.

Scenario… you are taking your evening run after work to wind down. The sidewalk is a bit uneven but with the streetlights you can see fairly well. You come to a section of the road where the light is out but keep on going. Bang – you hit a sidewalk that is raised from a tree root and go flying. Unfortunately you fall and crack your tooth. Yes, the front one, of course! Everything is closed and you panic. It hurts and you just don’t know whether you can take the pain overnight. The only option is the hospital – you don’t want to lose your tooth!! If this happens to you, don’t go to the emergency room because they aren’t equipped to handle dental emergencies. All they can do is treat a dental infection with antibiotics and tell you to schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. And in most cases you are likely to be hit with a large bill or co-pay.

Please don’t suffer with dental pain, call our office immediately. We will take care of your emergency!
