Dental emergencies are often resolved within one appointment; however, please note that occasionally certain procedures will take longer to complete and may require additional appointments. Your dentist will perform a dental examination at the beginning of the visit to determine the most appropriate course of action. If your condition involves further repair, your dentist will discuss the complete course of treatment with you and help you book another appointment. Please be sure to discuss your treatment options with your dentist and follow-up appointments before leaving your emergency visit.
