Obtain emergency dental care at Your Smile Dental Wellness Center
In general, a dental emergency is any type of oral health problem that requires immediate attention and assistance from a dentist to avoid further damage or pain. This could include something as simple as a toothache suddenly becoming very severe or something much more serious like a cracked tooth or an abscess. If you are unsure if your situation qualifies as a dental emergency, it is always best to err on the side of precaution and contact an emergency dentist immediately.
What are some examples of emergency dentistry situations?
- Cracked teeth: A cracked tooth might be painful and require immediate dental care. If you think you have a cracked tooth, it is critical to see our team at Your Smiles Dental Wellness Center as soon as possible so we can assess the damage and recommend the best treatment.
- Abscesses: An abscess is a pocket of pus that forms around the root of a tooth due to an infection. Abscesses can be very painful and, if left untreated, can lead to serious health complications. If you think you have an abscess, a visit to the dentist for a definitive diagnosis and effective treatment is critical.
- Knocked-out teeth: If you have a tooth that has been knocked out from dental trauma, see an emergency dentist right away. There is a chance that the knocked-out tooth may be re-implanted if it is seen within a few hours of being removed.
- Toothaches: A toothache is usually a sign that there is something wrong with your teeth, such as an infection or decay. If you have a toothache that remains severe or persists for more than a day or two, it is important to contact Dr. Yvonne Caton-Hospedales right away so she can determine the cause of the problem and provide effective, affordable treatment. McDonough, Georgia area patients can call the team at Your Smile Dental Wellness Center for assistance.
