Understanding Dental Emergencies

Tackling sudden dental dilemmas with expertise and compassionate care

Sudden Severe Toothache:

One of the most common dental emergencies is a sudden, severe toothache, which can be both alarming and incapacitating. It could result from various factors, such as an abscess, a fractured tooth, or severe decay, each requiring immediate attention to alleviate pain and prevent further complications.

Accidental Tooth Loss or Damage:

Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye – a fall, a collision during sports, or biting down on hard food can lead to a tooth being knocked out or damaged. In such instances, immediate care is crucial not only to manage pain and bleeding but also, potentially, to save the tooth.

Swollen, Bleeding Gums:

A sudden onset of swollen, bleeding gums can signify serious underlying issues like advanced gum disease or infection and should not be ignored. Prompt intervention can prevent the progression of the condition and protect overall oral health.

Every day, countless individuals face these and other unforeseen dental issues, and our mission at Hillside Dental Care is to address these concerns with the urgency and unparalleled care they warrant, mitigating discomfort and safeguarding your long-term dental health.

Two Decades, Unwavering Trust

My wife and I have been with Hillside Dental for nearly 20 years. From dental cleaning to root canals and almost all dental needs. Dr. Rosenberg and his staff are highly skilled, knowledgeable and very focused on their patients. We are moving to California soon but I would be tempted to come back for our dental needs.
Trish D.

Exceptional Emergency Care

I had a really bad tooth emergency over this past weekend. Since it was a Sunday, the office was closed. I texted the Dr.'s emergency line, and he came into the office with an assistant ready to go and relieve my pain. I can't tell you enough what a relief it was to get this taken care of. I'll always recommend Dr. Rosenberg and his staff.
Kyra R.

Exceptional Experience

I have nothing but the best to say about Hillside Dental Care. The dentist was very kind and polite. I had not been to a dentist in over 15 years and was very nervous, but the dentist and staff made me feel comfortable. I would highly recommend going to this office; they are amazing!

Comfortable Dental Work

I had 3 teeth removed recently, and I was very nervous as I've never had adult teeth pulled before. The entire staff is super friendly and nice and eased my fears about being at the dentist for the first time in 15 years. Dr. Rosenberg is very knowledgeable with a gentle touch and great bedside manner. I will recommend this office to anyone needing dental work!

Gentle and Caring Treatment

This is the best dental experience I have had in my LIFE. I had a lot of dental work done as a little boy, including a headgear, extractions, fillings, and braces. As a result, I am traumatized. However, the staff was extremely gentle and aware of my dental office anxiety. THANK YOU to the entire staff for taking such good care of me! I highly recommend!
