Dental Emergencies

Dental EmergenciesIt sometimes happens that patients have an emergency situation and need emergency dental care. It may be an injury or another problem that causes the emergency, and we are here to take care of it no matter how it happened. 

Trillium Oral Surgery and Implantology can treat a wide range of dental emergencies, so give us a call when you need quick care. This will save you from a long wait in a crowded emergency room. 

How Do I Know I Have an Emergency?

Some people may want to go to the emergency room when they have a dental emergency. However, they are told to find a dentist or oral surgeon to take care of the problem when they do that. At our oral surgery practice, we can take on these emergencies to deliver quick care when it’s needed. 

If you aren’t sure that you have an emergency, there are a few criteria to look for to decide:

  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Trauma to your teeth or your face
  • Bacterial infection, fractures in your teeth, or severe pain in your teeth or face

If you experience any of these problems, give us a call and tell us about your emergency. You may need quick care for your situation. 

What If There are COVID Closures?

Even during COVID closures, we remain available. We are a designated essential business, so our doors will stay open. We’ll be here to give you an evaluation and/or the treatment you need for your emergency. It’s always best to treat a problem before it turns into a bigger problem. We have three offices that are each state-of-the-art with the latest in dental tools and equipment so that you’ll always get the best care for your emergency. 

We follow a strict office visit regimen and patient safety protocols to make sure you’re safe when you’re here. When you call about your emergency, you will be told about the current office visit protocols. 

The office itself is being disinfected regularly, including the surfaces in the waiting room. Patients are asked to wash or sanitize their hands when they arrive at one of our offices. When employees are sick, we ask them to stay home for your safety. We also prefer that you arrive alone unless there is a reason that you need a driver. We also have a prescreening process to ensure everyone’s safety.

What Our Patients Really Think About Us

The doctors and staff at this practice are second to none! As a dental specialist myself, I have a “behind the scenes” look at many practices and I would never send my family anywhere else.


“Dr. Cannavo pulled an infected wisdom tooth for me the very next day after seeing me. He did an excellent job, and everything went very smoothly. 10/10 would let him remove another tooth from my head.”


I took my daughter in for a consultation with regards to a Class 3 malocclusion. Dr. Jeff treated us with empathy & professionalism. He provided two different treatment plans for my daughter and I to review.


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Betts for many years and always he takes care of me with empathy and no pain and a sense of urgency I wouldn’t go to anybody else. You get treated like you were part of his family.
