At Green Dentistry, we know that many dental conditions require emergency dental care that can’t wait for a more convenient time. We’re here to help you handle the unexpected as quickly as possible and can usually see patients with emergencies the same day.

- You’ve fractured or broken a tooth
- An adult tooth is loose or has fallen out
- You have cracked or broken dental restorations
