Care When You Need It Most
If you are an existing patient at our office and need emergency dental care, Dr. Light, Dr. Conforti, and Zarrella will get you out of pain and back to smiling again. Our team works together to coordinate your care efficiently in emergency situations, and we offer oral sedation options to keep you calm and comfortable. If you’re an existing patient experiencing an emergency, call us immediately at (401) 351-0072 to schedule an appointment.
While some dental emergencies are obvious, like knocked-out teeth and excessive bleeding, some are more subtle. As a general rule, we consider any oral issue that is causing you pain and that you cannot treat on your own to be a dental emergency. This includes cracked, chipped, or impacted teeth, as well as issues like serious toothaches and pulled-out dental work (such as fillings or crowns). If you still have a question about whether your issues is considered an emergency, don’t hesitate to call our team and discuss your situation. You can reach us at (401) 351-0072.
