Our Emergency Services
Medical emergencies can often be sudden, frightening, and inconveniently timed. Severe dental pain or injury is no different. If you or a family member is dealing with a situation like this, please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Kayode Onanuga at Catonsville Dental Center. Time is often of the essence in these situations, which is why our team works hard to see emergency cases on the same day they contact us. In the meantime, we provide information on how to minimize the injury or discomfort until you reach us.
Below is a list of situations and/or symptoms that our Catonsville, MD dental team believe constitute an emergency visit:
- Knocked Out Tooth
- Broken Tooth
- Knocked Out Filling or Crown
- Dental Abscess and/or Swelling
- Painful Toothache
- Object Stuck Between Teeth
- Partially Dislodged Tooth
- Bleeding in the Mouth
- Soft Tissue Injury
Many dental emergencies occur because of a lack of sufficient home care. Make sure to attend regular check-ups at either of our locations so our team can inspect your mouth for any damage or decay, as well as provide valuable instruction on how to successfully floss and brush. Additionally, be careful when eating especially tough or chewy foods, and always use scissors to open tough packaging instead of your teeth.
Have you experienced a dental emergency while visiting the Catonsville area? Is your primary dentist unavailable at the time? We welcome your call in these situations as well. Our goal is to provide you with much-needed relief as soon as possible. If you’re in need of help, please contact either of our locations right away.
