Gateway Dental

What should I do if I have a dental emergency?

At Gateway Dental, we welcome all emergency patients, whether you are new to our office or not. We also welcome walk in emergencies. If you suspect that you or a loved one is experiencing a dental emergency, we encourage you to contact our office right away.

If you are unsure that your condition is a true emergency, contact us anyway. We are happy to give instructions over the phone to help you assess your situation and determine if you need immediate attention.

Here are some situations that we would consider an emergency where you should be seen right away:

  • A knocked-out tooth
  • An lost or broken restoration such as a crown or filling
  • Constant or severe dental pain or sensitivity 
  • A broken tooth
  • Injuries to your gums, cheeks, lips, or tongue – call first for further instructions

Gateway Dental offers convenient morning and evening hours to accommodate busy schedules, we make every effort to see you as soon as possible, and we offer same-day dentistry if needed. We will get you feeling better and back to your normal activities in no time.

Don’t hesitate to contact your Aurora dentist if you’re having a dental emergency!
