Our goal as your dental health care partner is to help you avoid dental discomfort whenever possible. If you experience tooth pain, please contact our office right away to make arrangements to be seen.

If you are traveling out of town or unable to reach Dr. Zanthos, a hospital emergency room is equipped to address severe dental pain, injury or facial swelling.

Tips for Avoiding Dental Injuries and Emergencies:

#1 Don’t postpone treatment. Dental disease is progressive by nature; "twinges" of tooth pain or toothaches that subside and reoccur are usually a sign of an underlying problem. Make a note of your symptoms, (i.e., how often they occur and what, if anything, sets them off) and contact us so that we can help you avoid a dental emergency.

#2 Dental trauma injuries can be reduced or prevented through the use of mouth guards for sports and car seats for young children and seatbelts for older children and adults.

Should a dental emergency occur, however, following are a few quick tips to help you through the initial response. And, remember, if a visiting family member or friend has a dental emergency, we are here to help, just give us a call!
