Where should I go for dental emergencies after hours?

If you have an after-hours dental emergency in Gasport, NY, you’ll need to get treatment right away. 

At Dentistry by Dr. Kaplansky, we treat dental emergencies and urgent injuries no matter the time of day. You can call our dental office 24/7 at (716) 772-7500 if you need to schedule an emergency dental appointment.

When you have an emergency like a knocked-out tooth or broken dental restoration, it’s best to visit your Lockport emergency dentist rather than heading for the hospital. Most emergency rooms aren’t designed to handle dental procedures and won’t have the necessary tools or materials on hand to perform your treatment.

You should only go straight to the emergency room if you have a broken jaw or if you believe you’re experiencing a life-threatening emergency or infection.

We know that your dental emergency likely won’t happen when it’s convenient for you or when you’re expecting them, which is why we offer emergency dental appointments after hours and on the weekends if you need them. The best thing to do is call our dental office at (716) 772-7500 so that a member of our treatment team can get the details about what happened. 

Some dental emergencies require treatment within minutes, while others can wait a few hours or even until the next morning, depending on their severity. We will always schedule your appointment when it is appropriate and best for your smile.
