Emergency Dentist

If you have a dental emergency, Dr. Wisdom Akpaka will make himself available to give you the highest quality of care. Dr. Wisdom realizes that dental emergencies are extremely upsetting for the individual who is in severe pain or has suffered the dental trauma of a broken tooth. In many cases, rapid treatment can save an injured tooth or keep an abscess from spreading serious infection throughout your body. When you are in pain, you are fortunate to have a dental practice you can turn to for compassionate and affordable emergency care.

Dr. Wisdom takes pride in making himself available for emergencies and will see patients after hours by appointment. “We do everything we can do to put patients at ease, and when they are in pain, we are quick to respond,” says Dr. Wisdom. “I offer nitrous oxide and oral moderate sedation for patients who are anxious. When they are relaxed, local anesthetic and treatment can be efficiently executed with fast relief.”

Dr. Wisdom welcomes you to call any time if you have urgent need for a dentist. He also offers patients “first thing” early Monday morning scheduling if you have a weekend emergency that can wait until Monday. A phone conversation with Dr. Wisdom will enable him to sort out the best approach for your circumstances.
