Emergency Dentistry

We always encourage our patients to visit us regularly so we can have a fighting chance of avoiding dental emergencies.

Still, some emergencies cannot be predicted or avoided due to accidents, illnesses, or anything else life throws at us. Curveballs are to be expected over your lifetime, which is why we train hard to treat them efficiently and competently. 

Common Dental Emergencies We Treat

Dr. Nick Schulte, your emergency dentist in St. Paul, MN, is available to diagnose and heal any dental mishap, including:

  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Lost filling or dental crown
  • Injury to tooth
  • Tooth pain
  • Sore jaw joints
  • Painful abscesses

If you have been in an accident and are experiencing severe pain or uncontrollable bleeding, please go to the emergency room immediately. 

See Us Straight Away If You Have Dental Pain

While there may be over-the-counter medications and herbs that people recommend if you are experiencing oral pain, we want to stress the fact that tooth pain is not normal. The goal isn't to ignore the pain or relieve it temporarily. Tooth pain can indicate an abscess, infection, or disease that will eventually get so bad that it becomes a dire dental emergency.

Call our St. Paul MN Dental Clinic

Give Brimhall Dentistry a call immediately if you feel an oral abnormality, and especially to continue your preventive dental care.
