The Process of an Emergency Dental Appointment: What to Expect

Facing a dental emergency can be overwhelming, but knowing what to expect during your visit can help ease anxiety. At Flatiron Dental, we prioritize your comfort and well-being.

Dr. Jagirdar believes in open communication and will guide you through each step of the process to ensure you are well-informed and at ease.


The first step in an emergency dental appointment is a thorough evaluation of your condition. Dr. Jagirdar will examine your oral health and any specific concerns you may have. This assessment is crucial for diagnosing the issue and determining the best course of action to alleviate your discomfort.

Pain Management

Once your condition is assessed, Dr. Jagirdar will provide immediate relief and pain management. This may include procedures such as dental fillings, extractions, or temporary fixes to stabilize your dental health. Her goal is to address your immediate needs to ensure you leave our clinic feeling more comfortable.

Treatment Plan

After addressing the immediate concerns, she will discuss a comprehensive treatment plan to address the root cause of the dental emergency. This may involve follow-up appointments, restorative procedures, or long-term treatment strategies to prevent future issues.
