Dental Emergencies may be frightening and uncomfortable. If you or a loved one is in need, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Carmichael. When you call ahead for urgent care, we make it our effort to aid you as soon as possible, and if you are unable to stop into our office, we can offer a few tips over the phone on temporary care.
POSSIBLE CASES FOR EMERGENCY DENTISTRY:
ARE YOU EXPERIENCING…
Minor to moderate toothache?
Missing or broken tooth?
Lost filling or crown?
Minor to moderate soft tissue injury?
Emergency Dentistry is not for every Emergency:
Dental emergencies that involve the face or mouth and need immediate care include jaw fractures and dislocations, serious soft tissue injuries, and abscesses with severe swelling. If you are immunocompromised or have a serious illness, it is especially important to get treated by emergency medical personnel or at a hospital. Conditions that you should call 911 or go directly to the hospital include sudden impact to the head or neck, severe swelling or bleeding and difficulty breathing or swallowing.
