Is this a dental emergency?

Patients are wondering if they have a dental emergency or not. Here is the list right from the American Dental Association, (ADA), on what is considered a dental emergency. Feel free to call us though because we are more than happy to talk to you! We are answering the phones (often from home) during our normal business hours. We schedule the emergencies so that there is no overlap and take extra care of our patients during this time by appointment only.


Here is the list of what is a dental emergency and you should call us to get an appointment with Dr. Brayer or Dr. Phane now.

• Bleeding that doesn’t stop
• Painful swelling in or around your mouth
• Pain in a tooth, teeth or jaw bone
• Gum infection with pain or swelling
• After surgery treatment (dressing change, stitch removal)
• Broken or knocked out tooth
• Denture adjustment for people receiving radiation or other treatment for cancer
• Snipping or adjusting wire of braces that hurts your cheek or gums
• Biopsy of abnormal tissue

We are taking every precaution and then some. Click Here to see what we have been doing amid this Pandemic. We have been taking lots of continuing education courses while we are not able to see the same amount of patients. We miss you and are excited for when we will get to see you regularly again. We actually got out load of lip balms in back at the beginning of March, so we’re stocked and ready with them at least! We are here for you for your questions and emergencies.

Update on face coverings

We here at Creating Smiles Dental would like to keep you informed on our safety protocols. To protect you and our staff, please be note our face covering policies when in the common areas of our dental offices. 

Our dental practice is thriving

We are blown away by your support as we returned to full dentistry. It looks a little different around here since you are now greeted with smiling eyes instead of our usual bright toothy smiles. We have been wearing masks and thank you for
