At Reliant Family Dental, we know that dental emergencies can sneak up entirely out of nowhere. And when you’re caught off guard by a dental injury during a sporting event, family dinner, business meeting, or other situation, you’ll want to have somewhere to turn. Knowing ahead of time that you have a caring emergency dentist on your side can make all the difference.
Our Evansville dentist, Dr. Chris Meunier, sees patients for emergency dentistry in Evansville on a routine basis. If your dental emergency happens during our business hours, we’ll do our best to see you that very same day before we close.
If the injury occurs later in the evening or even in the middle of the night, you should still contact us right away. Some dental emergencies can’t wait for even a few hours, so we’ll need to treat you immediately.
Whenever you have a dental emergency in Evansville, we encourage you to call us at (812) 402-7676.
Once you call, a member of our treatment team will talk through the specifics of what happened and determine when we need to see you. Even though we are closed on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, we still monitor our phones in the case of dental emergencies.
Book an Emergency Dentistry Appointment in Evansville, IN
Dr. Meunier may ask you to come in immediately, or he may request to see you as the very first dental appointment for the following morning if it’s safe to wait on your treatment. Dental emergencies become top priorities when patients call in with an injured tooth, so we’ll always recommend the best treatment for your unique situation.

Your Comfort Is Our Priority
We know that seeing a dentist typically isn’t at the top of everyone’s list of favorite activities. But we also know that providing a comfortable, welcoming office filled with friendly, skilled, helpful people along with homelike amenities such as wide-screen TVs, comfy chairs, a coffee bar, and Internet access is an excellent step toward changing that.
Our Staff Puts You At Ease
At Reliant Family Dental, we have a highly skilled team who understands that dentistry should not be painful or scary. We make your comfort a high priority and even offer nitrous oxide for those patients who need a little help relaxing in the dental chair. Don't be afraid to ask! Dental phobia is more common than you might think – millions of American feel the same way you do.
Our goal is for every one of our patients to enjoy visiting our office and getting the care they need and deserve from a talented and compassionate team. We don’t believe that dentistry needs to be scary and stressful, and we practice dentistry with the patients' needs first in our mind.
If there’s ever anything we can do to make your visit more comfortable, don’t hesitate to let us know! We want to make your experience a great one!
Dental emergencies involve injuries to your teeth and mouth that pose an immediate, time-sensitive threat to your health. Dental emergencies are often painful, and most come as a complete surprise when you are least expecting them.
If you experience an injury that requires immediate treatment no matter what time of day it is, you have a dental emergency on your hands.
If you’re dealing with minor pain, bleeding, or sensitivity, or if you have a non-urgent issue with your mouth, then you don’t need an emergency dental appointment and can wait until the next business day.
What Is and Isn't a Dental Emergency
Dental emergencies are typically:
- Broken teeth
- Knocked-out teeth
- Broken jaws
- Infected or abscessed teeth
- Excruciating toothaches
- The unexpected need for a tooth extraction
- Swelling, bleeding, or discolored teeth
- Broken or lost dental restorations, like a tooth crown, that expose the damaged tooth and render it painful or vulnerable to infection
Dental emergencies typically are not:
- Teeth that are mildly sensitive to hot or cold temperatures
- Gums that bleed while you floss or brush your teeth
- Broken orthodontic wires
- Minor toothaches that you can control for that day with an over-the-counter painkiller
- Loose dental fillings
- A cold sore or small cut on your tongue, lips, or cheek
