Emergency Dentist Philadelphia - Dental problemAt David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we have an answering service available during our off hours to assist patients who may need to see a dentist as soon as possible. In some instances, we may suggest patients come in first thing in the morning for treatment while calling in prescriptions to assist with pain and discomfort. In other situations, we may suggest patients visit their local emergency room for assistance depending on the severity of the problem.

There are many dental emergencies which may occur when patients are in need. These problems may include:
  • Broken, fractured teeth
