I have tooth that broke and I am in pain. What do I do?
Broken, cracked or decayed teeth are likely sources of tooth pain. Dental discomfort can often change from mild to severe at a moments notice. It is always best to be evaluated by a dentist ASAP! For temporary relief, over-the-counter pain medications can often help. At Now Care Dental, evaluating and treating dental pain is our focus. We want to provide you relief as soon as possible! We offer same day appointments and treatment for all common dental problems. We are open for dental emergencies 365 days a year. Call today! If it is after-hours, our answering service will take a message and you will be contacted the next morning around 8:00-9:00 A.M. to schedule an appointment.
I fell and my tooth seems to be loose. Do I need to be seen?
Now Care Dental does not expect you to know what to do in a dental emergency. That’s why we’re here for you. Trauma to your face can often result in a broken or loose tooth. It is best to have this evaluated by a trained dentist as soon as possible. Local ERs and Urgent Care Clinics refer to us for their dental trauma needs, as they have limited understanding and ability to treat dental patients. Let Now Care Dental’s experience and treatment knowledge of dental trauma help you save your tooth. If you do lose or displace a tooth is is best to place in back in its original “socket site” or location as soon as possible and call for further treatment. Waiting on treatment does result in a greater likelyhood of losing your tooth!
I woke up this morning with swelling, I am not sure if it is tooth-related? Should I go to the doctor?
Swelling in facial structures, on the jaws or checks is often related to teeth. Dental infections can present themselves in many ways, from a small pimple on the gums, to a tooth that hurts to bite down on or swelling. It is pertinent that any type of facial swelling be evaluated by a dentist as soon as possible. An antibiotic or pain pill may relieve some discomfort (generally, this is the only treatment provided by an ER or Urgent Care), yet the true source of the infection has not been addressed. Now Care Dental maintains treatment appointments 365 days a year and has the expertise to manage most dental infections. We treat a lot of patients with dental infections and know that delaying treatment leads to more severe cases. Treatment that we commonly provide for dental infections includes: drainage, root canals, and extractions. All of these are done with the the lastest technology and comforts that dentistry has to offer. Call us and a compassionate staff member will assist you today!
