Follow these steps if you’re experiencing a dental emergency. Our emergency dentist in Wyoming, MI, and his team are ready to help!
1. Call Our Office at (616) 532-9003
Call our office and we’ll schedule you for emergency dental care. When you call, we’ll ask you to describe your emergency and give you instructions to follow until you’re able to see our dentist.
Common dental emergencies include:
- Severe toothache
- Abscess or pimple on the gums
- Loose adult tooth
- Knocked-out tooth
- Object caught between teeth
- Cracked or broken tooth
- Painful chipped tooth
- Mouth sores
- Red and/or white patches inside the mouth
- Extreme tooth sensitivity to heat and cold
If you’re unsure if you have a dental emergency, please call our office anyways. We’ll be able to advise you on your next steps to regain your oral health.
While some emergencies require immediate attention (like a knocked-out tooth), you may be able to wait until the next opening in our schedule for other situations. For example, you may be able to wait a few days if you have a small chip in your tooth that’s not causing any pain.
Each patient is different, which is why it’s important to call our office to determine what restorative dental care you need.

All this information will help him diagnose the source of your dental pain. From there, he’ll be able to recommend a treatment plan to restore your oral health.
Our team will make sure that you have all the facts you need to make an informed decision. This includes talking about treatment options, cost comparisons, and financing options.
