A dental emergency requires the assistance of a quality dentist in Buffalo, NY
A dental emergency never happens at a convenient time. In many situations, it may be outside of traditional business hours. When dental care is needed quickly, Dr. Gordon Kent of Buffalo, NY can help. His practice, the Smile Center, is equipped 24/7 with a live individual who handles the phone and arranges assistance when patients need it.
Emergency dental situations
Common situations that require emergency care include:
- Teeth that are chipped or cracked
- Oral appliances that are broken or need adjustments, including dentures and partials

What should you do when a dental emergency occurs?
The first thing a patient should do is contact the Smile Center. Our staff can walk patients through what they should do before visiting the dental office. They may prescribe medication to address pain and discomfort until patients can get to the dentist. They may recommend patients visit the emergency room if it is an issue that cannot be addressed solely by a dentist. The on-call individual may also schedule a same-day or next-day appointment for further evaluation and treatment.
