Dental emergencies are some of the most painful situations that you may ever experience. A broken or abscessed tooth is no laughing matter. When you need to see a dentist, it can’t wait. At Fayetteville Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we’re here early, late, and even on weekends, to give you fast pain relief.
Call Us Right Away
Since we have more than one dentist, we’re able to keep our office open for extended hours. That means it’s easier to work you in for emergency pain relief when you need it.
As soon as your emergency has occurred, call our Fayetteville dentist office. If it’s after hours, our office manager will return your call right away to assist you. If the situation warrants itself, we may even need to arrange to meet you at our office to get you out of pain.
“Can it Wait?”
One of the most common questions people ask themselves is, “Does the situation really warrant itself as a true dental emergency?” To that, we ask you the following questions:
- Is it preventing you from going to work?
- Are you in pain?
- Are you able to eat?
- Can your child go to school?
- Is it causing embarrassment?
If you answered “yes” to any one of those questions, then yes, it is a true emergency. Otherwise, you may be able to wait until the next business day before we need to see you.
If something broke, such as a crown or bridge, store it in a zip-top bag and bring it with you to your appointment. Avulsed (knocked out) teeth should, if possible, attempt to be reinserted. If not, keep the tooth or fractured portion in a cup of milk or saline solution and bring it to our office immediately.
