What Is a Dental Emergency

At Opal Dental Group, we consider a dental emergency to be any oral issue that is causing you persistent pain, discomfort, or bleeding, which you cannot remedy on your own. Dental emergencies can include a prolonged toothache, oral injuries resulting in damaged teeth, or a piece of dental work that has fallen out. If you’re experiencing any of these situations, call us immediately! Our team is here to get you back to optimal oral health with convenient, empathetic care.

Common Solutions for Emergencies

When it comes to dental emergencies, we understand that every case is different and evaluate treatments based on your unique needs. From carefully crafted crowns and gentle root canal therapy to pain-free extractions and tooth splinting, we offer honest guidance and the most compassionate solutions, so you can move forward with peace of mind.


Prevention is the best way to take care of your smile. Regular cleanings, preventive treatments, and an effective at-home oral care routine, help keep your teeth beautiful and healthy.

Pain-free Extractions

When tooth extraction is absolutely necessary, you can rest assured our caring dentists are committed to your comfort and will ensure a painless experience with local anesthesia and sedation options. To extract the damaged or infected tooth, your dentist will loosen the tooth from the socket using modern tools and the most gentle techniques. They will remove the tooth, clean and disinfect the treated area, and suture the extraction site to secure successful healing.

Gentle Root Canals

If a deep-seated tooth infection is the reason for your pain, root canal therapy may be the best option to restore your oral health. During root canal therapy, your dentist will numb the site and ensure you feel completely comfortable throughout the treatment. Next, they will open up the tooth, remove decay and infected pulp, and fill the tooth with a rubber-like substance called “gutta-percha.” Finally, your smile will be restored with a dental crown made just for your bite.

Managing TMJ Pain

TMJ refers to the temporomandibular joint, a small joint located just under your ear that connects your jawbone to your skull. When the temporomandibular joint becomes inflamed, damaged, or moved out of place, you may experience TMD (temporomandibular dysfunction). TMJ and TMD are often used interchangeably to describe pain, discomfort, and compromised movement surrounding the jaw.

If you’re experiencing lockjaw, clicking, difficulty chewing, or other painful symptoms surrounding your jaw, Dr. Umair and Dr. Irum provide a variety of effective treatment options to help you manage TMJ/TMD.

Based on your diagnosis, one of our dentists may prescribe medication, a nightguard, or perform corrective dental treatments to restore the function of your bite.
