Emergency Dental Care
Are you in the middle of a dental emergency? Are you experiencing severe tooth pain or a broken tooth? Smiles by Seese can help. As part of our family dentistry menu, emergency dental services are perfect for families in Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville and Moorseville, NC who are experiencing dental emergencies.
What is a dental emergency? Anything that would prevent you from going to work or school. If you have to call in because it hurts so badly - then it's an emergency.
Some examples of dental emergencies include:
- Broken teeth
- Knocked out teeth
- Broken fillings, crowns, or other restorations
- Pain or swelling
- Abscessed teeth
At Smiles by Seese, our first goal is to alleviate any pain or discomfort that you are experiencing. We will help you determine the cause of the problem and offer you different choices to correct it.
Wearing a custom-made bite splint or mouthguard is a great way to avoid some types of dental emergencies - such as those involving broken teeth or concussions. Ask us about having a bite splint made for your family athlete! Research shows that custom sport guards may even prevent concussions.
Urgent Dental Care Office
If you have a broken or knocked out tooth, it's extremely important that you seek care fast. Call our dentist office and bring any remaining tooth portions with you. Be sure to place them in a cup of milk or saline solution to keep them hydrated, but do not attempt to clean them off. The faster you can make it to our dental practice, the better the chance we will have at saving your smile.
If you aren't sure whether your condition is an emergency or not, please do not hesitate to call us or contact us online. Dr. Seese would rather have you be more cautious about your smile than to not worry about it at all.
