Emergency Dental Care in Avon, CT

About Emergency Dental Care

At Avon Dental Group, we understand the stress and concern that dental emergencies can cause. Our team of caring general dentists is here when you need us most. We offer 24-hour emergency dental care for our patients and strive to take care of any emergency needs the same day. Oral injuries and damage often result from accidents when playing sports, trip-and-falls, and direct trauma to the face or mouth. Whether you feel discomfort or not, it is still important to have your mouth evaluated after any injury to screen for any hidden damage. Our Avon, CT dental team places dental emergencies as a priority. If you or a loved one needs care from an emergency dentist, please contact our practice right away.

Type of Dental Emergencies

You may need emergency treatment if a crown, bridge, denture, or other restoration breaks or falls out, you are in pain, or you have a broken or knocked-out tooth (which requires immediate care). In some circumstances, you may be unsure of how quickly you need to seek treatment (such as with a loose tooth or restoration, trauma that does not cause pain or bleeding, or a chipped tooth). Any time you have an injury to your mouth, including your gums, teeth, or jawbone, it is important to get in touch with our office right away. Our empathetic team can help you decide how quickly to come in, offer strategies to reduce any pain, and inform you of how to store your tooth or dental restoration until you arrive. Even minor injuries can cause larger problems if not treated right away, so it is better to err on the side of caution and contact our office immediately.

Though we treat all types of dental emergencies, some of the most common situations we see include:

  • Toothaches
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Dislodged teeth or restorations
  • Broken teeth or restorations
  • Abscessed or infected teeth
  • Oral lacerations

What To Expect during Care

Every dental emergency situation is different. To provide the highest level of care for your specific needs, we will carefully evaluate your mouth and work to get you out of discomfort as quickly as possible. Digital x-rays may be taken to screen for any unseen damage. Once we understand the extent of your condition, one of our dentists will speak with you about treatment options. Whenever possible, we strive to provide treatment during your emergency visit. However, you may require a follow-up appointment to further address your needs or complete your care. In some cases, our on-site dental lab may be utilized to fulfill lab-related emergencies within the same day, such as when a denture breaks or needs other repairs.

Excellent professional experience. Takes care of you by asking questions.

I visited Avon Dental this morning and Shawna did my X-rays. She was courteous, helpful and detailed oriented. I felt very relax as a patient. On the way out I was helped by Mahlaida and Megan whom took care of my next visit, again very helpful. What a great team!!

My hygienist John made my very early 8am appt quick and painless while receptionists Mahlaila and Shawna provided comic relief at checkout!

I’ve never been good with dentists, to the point where I’d resist them while in the chair. Dr. Yungaitis has gone above and beyond to help me feel comfortable and start getting over my fear.

After another local practice left me completely untreated and with no legitimate referral who would take my insurance, I was left in pain with an infected upper left (#14) molar for the entire weekend of 4/5-4/8/24. Nicole was instrumental in getting me an emergency appointment at Preferred Dental in Cromwell. I have to go back, but the tooth has been opened, medicated, and I am on my way to healing. Instead of being stuck at home (in severe pain) on the phone hearing "NO" from every other dental practice in the Farmington Valley. Including a couple that had been my dentist for decades. I am sticking with this practice. Dr. Zachary Meunier and his assistant(intern?) did a great job. (I presume the other person's role, I don't mean to downplay his partner's importance in the procedure.)
