Be Prepared with Emergency Dentistry
It’s easy to take a beautiful, well-functioning set of teeth for granted–until an accident happens. Dental emergencies happen frequently, just like medical emergencies do. It’s natural to feel panic during a dental emergency, but that is not what we want for our patients. Dr. Faltine and his dental team at MiraBella Smiles offer their patients emergency dentistry so that they can worry less. We prioritize our patients who need immediate dental care. We can guide them through the situation and get them treatment as soon as possible.
What Is Considered a Dental Emergency?
Dental emergencies can arise from physical trauma that can occur with sports, bad falls, or other accidents. Emergencies can also come from developing problems that are not taken care of in a timely fashion. Some common dental emergencies include:
- Knocked out tooth
- Severe, persistent toothache
- Chipped or broken tooth
- Damage to dental work
- Lost dental work
- Broken braces
- Tooth abscess or infection
- Objects stuck between the teeth
- Badly bitten or cut tongue, cheek, or lip
If you or a loved one are experiencing any of the problems above, you can remain calm, because we will take care of you at MiraBella Smiles. Contact our office immediately after an emergency and we will do everything that we can to fix the problem. Save all that you can after the emergency. Teeth, pieces of teeth, or pieces of dental work should be brought into your dentist. Keep teeth in the socket or in liquid like milk or a saline solution.
We take care of our patients, especially when you are in an urgent time of need. Give us a call today to learn about emergency dentistry, and know that you can contact us immediately if an emergency situation occurs.
