Although it’s important to always stay on top of your oral health with regular checkups and a good regular oral hygiene routine, you still never know when a dental emergency in Baton Rouge might strike.

About our Emergency Services:
At Tiger Smile Family Dentistry, we’ve helped countless patients with a wide range of dental emergencies in Baton Rouge. Below are some of the most frequent reasons for needing emergency or after hour dental care:
Broken teeth can happen at any time and are one of the most common dental emergencies we see. From roughhousing with your kids to playing sports, one wrong move, and wham, before you know it your tooth is cracked or broken.
Similarly, even biting down on a hard piece of candy or food is often enough to break a tooth.
The good news is we’re here to help, and fast. With after hour services you can give us a call any time.
Abscesses are infections that can form between your gums and teeth or even surrounding the roots. These infections often won’t go away on their own and can be extremely painful. Left untreated, this infection can spread and even become life-threatening.
It happens. More often than you’d think. Whether from sports or an accidental bump to the face, it doesn’t take much to knock a tooth clear out of its socket. The good news is that if you get in to see us FAST, we might be able to save it.
There are few things worse than dental pain and toothaches, often radiating along your jaw, neck, and even contributing to constant headaches. If you find that you’re experiencing intense or constant pain with little relief from over the counter care, don’t’ hesitate to reach out.

“After coming here, I realized just how important it is to find a dental facility you feel comfortable getting treated by. I’ve been to the dentist, many dentists actually, over the years, and not once have I felt this “at home” in a dental office. Super casual atmosphere, the doctors and secretaries are super friendly, and the whole vibe instantly relaxes you upon walking in.” – Eva Thomas
“They work really efficiently and have great equipment. I’ve been to many dentists over the years, and at times, it feels like it takes 2+ hours for a cleaning. Not here. My dentist makes me feel really comfortable and relaxed in the chair, and I’m sure all the other dentists here do the same!” – JD Porto
