How do I know if I need 24-hour emergency dentistry?

A throbbing toothache is a definite sign that something serious is happening with your oral health that needs immediate attention. In this case, we don’t need to tell you that you have a dental emergency on your hands!

But other urgent dental situations can arise, and you may wonder if the problem requires 24-hour emergency dentistry at our Durham, NC dental office. 

At The Smile Shop, a dental emergency is an urgent dental problem that needs immediate treatment for pain relief or to save a tooth. For example, severe tooth infections are excruciating and can be life-threatening if they’re not dealt with right away.

When you’re a patient at The Smile Shop, you never have to wonder if a toothache that woke you at 2 AM is a dental emergency. You can pick up the phone and call us at (919) 941-5549, and a member of our dental team will be there to take your call.
