The most common reason for people seeking emergency dental care is a toothache. Dental pain can be extremely debilitating, we offer dental emergency care and are experienced in dealing with difficult emergency cases including failed root canals, trauma in young children and extensive dental trauma in adults.
Tooth, jaw and nerve pain are hard to bear and need prompt attention for immediate relief to avoid further problems or infections. If you are having difficulties with decay, a painful wisdom tooth, or have suffered an injury, such as a cracked or broken tooth, it can be very uncomfortable and inconvenient. Please contact us to arrange a consultation and we will endeavor to meet your needs the best we can.
Leaving problems left untreated for too long such as build-up of pain, infections or cracked teeth can become quite serious and dangerous to your health, at times even requiring hospitalization; to prevent this it is highly important to seek dental care as soon as possible.

What are the causes of a Toothache?
Toothaches can be caused by several things, including:

The treatments vary based on the cause of a toothache, but may include:
