Our aim is to relieve pains and dental discomfort that results from dental emergencies.  Below are some helpful tips to help you with some of the most common dental emergencies.

Abscesses & Wisdom Teeth Pains

Abscesses are advanced bacteria growths that typically begin as cavities.  Some can be extremely painful and exude throbbing sensations that hinder sufferers from normal activities.  If you are dealing with an abscess it would be best to call us for same-day treatment.  Usually, we will provide a mild sedative to relieve the pain, while cleaning out the abscess.

Broken or Chipped Teeth

A broken or chipped tooth sometimes results from a fall, strike, or biting down on a hard object.  If this has occurred, you should visit us as soon as possible.  In such cases, there may be significant damage inside the tooth that is not readily seen.  Waiting to get assistance could cause further damage to the tooth and even risk loss of the entire tooth.  When you arrive, you can expect us to take digital x-rays of the so that we can determine the most ideal way to restore your tooth.

Knocked-Out Tooth

In the event of a completely knocked-out tooth, it is imperative that you get to a dental office immediately.  If you have the tooth, rinse it off and store it in a cup of milk.  The milk will keep the tooth moist and saturate it with minerals that keep it strong.  Be sure to use a cold compress if you have any swelling at the gum of the loss tooth.

We understand that although an emergency is on hand, cost may make a patient reconsider treatment.  Arrow Smile Dental furnishes financing options via CareCredit if the need arises.  We also accept a variety of insurances, payment plans, and all major credit cards.

Accidents happen.  We understand.  However, we also understand that if you have a dental emergency you should get into a dental office quickly.  If you have an emergency, give Arrow Smile Dental a call immediately.
