What is an Oral Surgery Emergency?

An oral surgery emergency, best suited for the office setting, is one that has been deemed necessary after evaluation by a general dentist or root canal specialist. Concerns for breathing, head and neck swelling are best suited to be evaluated in a hospital setting. In the event of a true medical emergency, please call 9-1-1 or your Primary Care Physician’s office.
