Crack a Tooth or Lose a Filling?
A dental emergency can range from losing a crown or filling to cracking or breaking your tooth. While we want to evaluate all types of dental emergencies as soon as possible, there are specific situations that need to be addressed within the first 24-48 hours. If you experience extreme pain or infection, bleeding, swelling or injury to your teeth or gums, please call us immediately. Avoiding or delaying treatment can often worsen your pain and set you up for more costly dental procedures.
Other urgent dental situations, such as a cracked filling or lost crown, may not necessarily need immediate attention. However, please call our office promptly so that we can discuss your concerns and schedule your appointment accordingly. We can also walk you through any steps you should take in order to protect your teeth or dental restoration until you can be seen.
At Mitzi Morris, DMD, we work hard to be a dentist you can trust at all times, whether it is evaluating your teeth and gums during a routine exam or providing immediate root canal therapy to bring you out of pain from an infected tooth. Regardless of the severity or cause of your dental crisis, never be embarrassed to contact us right away to get the treatment your smile needs and deserves. You will be met with compassionate and professional care; we guarantee it.
