Your Charlotte Emergency Dentist
A dental emergency is never going to occur a few hours before your regularly scheduled dental visit. It’s just not going to happen. Patients need emergency dental care at unexpected times, and often outside of regular office hours.
Imagine calling your dentist with a pressing dental emergency to find out that there is no availability for you. Where do you turn when you need immediate dental attention?
Late and Weekend Hours
We never want our patients to feel helpless when they experience a dental emergency! We are here for our patients and go out of our way to make room in our schedule to accommodate emergency dental care. Our practice closes late and we are open on weekends!
Give us a call so that we can provide you with instructions and determine the right appointment time for your emergency dental care.
We prioritize dental emergencies that may occur in:
- Automobile accidents
- School, work, or at-home incidents
- Slips and falls
We also provide emergency dental care for patients who are suffering from:
- Deep tooth decay
- Severe toothache
- Tooth infection
- Broken dental work
- And more
Toothache or sensitivity may represent a larger problem. If you are suffering from a toothache, contact us right away.
Sports-Related Dental Emergencies
Be sure to wear or have your child wear an athletic mouthguard during sporting events. Mouthguards significantly reduce the chance of dental trauma.
However, injuries happen! We are here to help you with kindness and compassion if an accident occurs. You deserve fast treatment in order to end pain and restore your healthy smile.
What about an avulsed or knocked-out permanent tooth? Here are the steps you should take:
- Rinse the tooth gently without touching the roots.
- Place the tooth back into its socket if possible. If not, place it in a plastic bag of milk, saltwater, or saliva.
- Call our emergency dentist right away. The sooner you can see an emergency dentist, the better chance there is to save the natural tooth.
