What is a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies come in all shapes and sizes. These are the most common dental emergencies we see at The Grove City Center for Dentistry:  
  • A lost dental filling that causes pain
  • Missing or damaged tooth from trauma (car accident, sports injury)
  • Broken or chipped teeth that cause pain
  • Toothache and extreme pain
  • Swollen, painful jaw with tooth or gum pain
  • Dry socket from a dental extraction
  • Painful, swollen gums
  • Broken dentures
  • A dental crown that has fallen out and causes pain or sensitivity

What is not a dental emergency?

While we understand that some dental problems can’t wait, other issues can. We appreciate that every patient’s pain level and dental situation are unique. That’s why we look at every patient’s concerns individually and with care and empathy.

At our office, our team typically considers the amount of pain you are in and the severity of your injury to determine if it is an emergency or not. Below are some examples of a dental situation that is not an emergency. However, if you experience any of these issues, please call the same or the next business day so we can schedule you for an exam.

  • Lost fillings that do not cause pain
  • Cracked or chipped tooth that does not cause pain
  • Issues with crowns, veneers, or dental bridges

Call us if you are unsure if your tooth problem is an emergency. We are happy to talk with you about your symptoms, identify your pain level, and decide if we need dental work immediately.

What should I do if I need an emergency dentist in Grove City, Ohio?

If you have a dental emergency in Grove City, Ohio, you should call The Grove City Center for Dentistry.

We will work to see you as quickly as possible and provide the urgent dental care you need.

When should I see an emergency dentist for tooth pain?

We are asked this question a lot! If you experience pain in your gums, a single tooth, or multiple teeth, please do not wait until the pain is unmanageable or unbearable. Call us immediately at 614-858-8049 so that we can get you in to see one of our emergency dentists and examine your mouth to identify what is causing your pain.

Many of our patients have been feeling their symptoms for multiple days and then call our office when they are in extreme pain. In most cases, if you call us when the first symptoms appear, we can schedule an appointment and prevent further pain or complications.

Should I go to the emergency room for dental emergencies or tooth pain?

If you have experienced severe trauma to your face, jaw or mouth and you have extensive cuts or bleeding in your mouth or other complications, go straight to the emergency room. Depending on any procedures performed at the hospital, you may need to schedule a follow-up appointment with Dr. Simone or Dr. Lowe at our office to complete any necessary dental restoration or repairs.

Most emergency rooms won’t treat less severe problems like broken or chipped teeth, broken dentures, a severe toothache, or lost dental fillings. For these cosmetic dentistry concerns, you should contact us immediately to schedule your emergency dental care in Grove City as soon as possible.

Is Grove City urgent dental care different from regular dental services?

An emergency dentist is a dentist who is available to see patients on short notice, usually within 24 hours. Emergency dentists can often see patients after hours, on weekends and holidays, when most dentists see patients by appointment only.

Do you have same-day appointments for emergency dental care in Grove City, OH?

We understand that your oral health emergency or increased pain can happen anytime. That’s why we reserve daily slots for urgent dental care and same-day appointments for our current patients at our Grove City, OH location.

For prospective or new patients, our dental team will still try to see you as quickly as possible, in many cases, that same day.
