At Victus Dental, we know that life happens and so do emergencies. As good partners in your journey to peak oral health, we are here for you whenever something goes awry. As a champion of your own healthcare, it is your job to contact us right away and let us know what’s happening so that we can do our job and deliver you a stress-free treatment option. We are ready and willing to help you so that an uncomfortable situation isn’t made worse by inaction.

There is often some confusion over what situations constitute an emergency. While there is a vast array of issues that could be considered an emergency, we most frequently come across issues such as:

  • Dislodged crowns
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Lost teeth
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Bleeding

A true emergency is something that is pressing to you and requires our immediate attention, and you know yourself best. If you feel as if you may have an emergency but aren’t sure if it’s big enough to call us about, just reach out anyways. Not only do we love to hear from you, but we also want you to be comfortable without feeling pressured to suffer in silence. We have a specialized team standing by to help you and we are honored to be your first call for all things oral health.

If you are wondering whether or not it can wait for assistance without it posing a threat to your oral health, here are some instances of situations that can wait a few days as long as you’re comfortable:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth that aren’t causing pain
  • Minor toothaches
  • Lost fillings

It all relates back to whether or not you feel comfortable waiting, although if you are unsure of whether or not it’s safe we are happy to let you know its priority level. As true Masters of Dentistry, we are prepared to assist you in the good time and bad. So bring any concern you have to us and will give it the care and attention it deserves.

Is Emergency Care Offered?

Yes! We believe it’s our responsibility to our patients to provide emergency care that takes the stress out of a tense situation. You already have enough on your hands, you don’t need a rogue crown or cracked tooth to stop you in your tracks. Just give us a call, and one of our legendary team members will guide you through your next steps.

Whenever there’s an emergency, there’s no time to waste. This is why we will get you in the next business day so that you don’t have to suffer a moment longer than you need to.

As a part of our commitment to helping our community achieve beautiful and healthy smiles, we are even available to see first-time patients for emergencies. No one deserves to have to sit through pain and discomfort just because you don’t have a dentist’s office you call home. In this worst-case scenario, we will just adapt your first visit experience to best suit your current needs. Our goal in our typical first visits is to assess the needs of the patient and provide them with a treatment plan moving forward, and this process is the same when approaching an emergency.

Once you are in the office, we will work to quickly assess the problem and identify the source of the issue. This may require the use of x-rays so that we can fully understand the situation at hand. You will meet with one of our doctors so that they make an informed decision on how to move forward and solve the issues you’re facing.

These solutions may look like fixing broken teeth, replacing crowns to their previous positions, or crafting a ten-day treatment plan to alleviate any pain you may be feeling.

We understand that emergencies can be scary and may make you feel a little frantic, but we are well-trained to deal with these types of problems. So you can rest assured in the knowledge that if terror strikes, we have your back and will see you as soon as possible to set the world right again.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us in the case of an emergency, our specialized team is here to help and will help you get our dentist’s chair as soon as possible.
