Modern office amenities and advanced dental services are to be expected, but we also know what matters to our patients. Time and money are valuable, and we’ve designed our practice to help you make the most of them.
Sometimes you can’t wait days or weeks to see a dentist. In these instances, we are happy to accommodate our patients with same-day emergency appointments. A visit to our office will have you smiling again in no time.
We may reserve openings in our daily schedule to accommodate dental emergencies, because we know that waiting even a day for an appointment can feel like forever when you’re in pain. If you’re experiencing an emergency like a chipped tooth or a broken filling, call our office right away so we can help!
What is a Dental Emergency?
Any dental problem causing severe pain, bleeding, or discomfort from trauma or infection is considered a dental emergency. Without prompt treatment for these dental issues, the functionality of your mouth can decline, and the spreading of infection can take place, impacting your oral health and general health.
Dental emergencies include:
Severe or consistent toothache
Broken or chipped teeth
Bleeding or swelling of the gums
Tooth or gum abscess
Lost tooth due to trauma or infection
What Should I Do During A Dental Emergency?
During a dental emergency, it can be easy to become overwhelmed by pain and stress. However, getting in touch with an emergency dentist should be your top priority after identifying the situation as a true emergency. Instead of waiting or trying to handle the situation yourself, seeing a professional can provide you with the best odds of restoring your smile quickly and effectively. Don’t hesitate to contact our office if you need a Bolivar emergency dentist.
What Are Treatment Options For Dental Emergencies?
Depending on the severity and type of dental emergency occurring and how quickly you respond, you may be left with a variety of options or only one to choose from. For example, for patients who experience a severe toothache or broken tooth, dental crowns are a quick and effective option for treatment. At Bolivar Smiles, we offer CEREC crowns, also known as same-day crowns, to restore your smile in one visit. CEREC crowns are durable, natural-looking, and long-lasting! If you believe you need a same-day crown, give our office a call.
