If you feel you need a dentist immediately, call David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, located in Philadelphia, PA.

Urgent Dental Care Philadelphia PA

Common dental emergencies:

  • Knocked out permanent tooth: If you experience an accident in which one or more teeth are knocked out, keep the tooth moist. Often, if you can make it to a dentist in time, the tooth can be placed back in the socket.
  • Cracked tooth: Rinse immediately with warm water to clean the area. Use a cold compress on the outside of the mouth to help keep swelling down.
  • Infected tooth: If your tooth is sensitive and painful to touch or to heat, it is probably infected. Rinse your mouth with lukewarm water and call us so we can advise further action needed.
  • Objects stuck in between teeth or in the gums: Attempt to gently remove the object using floss. Do not use any type of sharp object to attempt removal as this can seriously injure the mouth.


Why choose us for urgent dental care?

  • Even when we are closed, we are still available to help! We have a 24-hour dental help line that can help you determine how to treat your urgent needs and advise you whether something can wait until the following day or needs to be seen immediately.


We see all patients as unique individuals and care about their health and well-being. Call us with any questions or concerns. We can help! (267) 463-2777.

I’ve been going here for years and I’ve never had a problem. He also did my anterior crown and I’m in hygiene school and many of my peers can’t even tell it’s a crown. Dr. Spilkia is a wonderful dentist and I would not go anywhere else!
