Emergency / After Hours
Dental emergencies range from a painful toothache to a severe oral or facial injury. No one plans dental emergencies, and that’s why Glick Dental Associates offers same-day emergency dental service – so we are there when you need us.
If you or someone in your family has a dental problem requiring immediate attention, we will attempt to arrange to see you sometime during that same day. We are proud of our ability to respond quickly to urgent situations. In fact, if there is no other way to solve the problem, we will make arrangements to see you even when the office is technically closed.
Glick Dental Associates’ emergency dentistry services can help you receive the urgent dental care you need by:
Scheduling a same-day appointment.
Answering questions about insurance coverage for dental emergencies.
Providing tips on avoiding accidents or injury to your teeth.
Referring you to a qualified doctor for treatment of non-dental oral or facial emergencies.
When you call us at 440-349-1400, please provide as much information as possible about what happened, the level of oral or facial pain you are experiencing and any other symptoms. We will do our best to address your dental emergency quickly and efficiently.
There are steps you can take to prevent or minimize dental emergencies. One way to decrease the chances of damaging your teeth and jaw is to wear a mouth guard when you play sports. Another is to avoid chewing food that can crack your teeth.

TMJ / pain management
Millions of people suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Because it’s a condition that affects one of the most frequently used joints in the body, the jaw joint, TMJ disorder is very painful. When you eat, speak or make many facial expressions, you are using your jaw joint.
Symptoms of TMJ disorder can include:
sore, popping and/or clicking jaws
difficulty opening your mouth
Many patients who suffer from debilitating headaches and soreness, popping and clicking when chewing suffer from a dysfunction of the joint, ligaments and tendons where the lower jaw meets the skull. While the actual cause of such symptoms varies, most cases can be treated similarly with a simple retainer like appliance known as a 'biteplane". If you think you could be suffering from TMJ/TMD, ask us to evaluate you at your next visit.
TMJ treatment options can alleviate pain and symptoms of TMJ disorder. They are an alternative to costly, invasive and time-consuming surgery. Solutions include:
Nonsurgical bite guards: soft plastic teeth protectors that prevent teeth grinding.
Occlusal equilibration: filing of chewing and biting surfaces of teeth.
