That means for no cost you can discover precisely what is going wrong and what options you have to solve your dental emergency from a trusted dental team in Chandler, AZ. Dr. Williams is a gentle and precise dentist with an emphasis in cosmetic dentistry, meaning that your restorations will be perfect for your facial features and geometry, leaving you pain-free and with a smile you can be proud of.
The most common cause of toothaches is tooth damage or decay. Though they may be quite painful, they are not as extreme as other emergencies can be. Toothaches tend to be quite normal in children because their teeth are still sensitive. If you or your child are experiencing pain, brush your teeth and floss to clear out leftover particles that could still be present from a meal. If you are still in pain, grab some over-the-counter pain medication and take the amount the label recommends. You may want to schedule an appointment with us to get your tooth checked out and if a more serious service is needed, we can help you feel better in no time.
Our teeth go through a great amount of wear and tear regularly. Though they are strong, they are still prone to chipping. If the break is small, we can repair it with a bonding compound that will resemble the natural color of your teeth. If the chip lies on the front of your tooth, we can easily place a veneer over it to give you a flawless solution. If the chip is causing any discomfort, make an appointment with it and we will treat it accordingly. Regardless of the procedure needed to fix the chip, the process itself is rather easy and painless.
Though getting a tooth knocked out may be serious and may induce some panic, it is important to remain calm and look for the missing tooth. If you find it, gently rinse it off with water and place it in a glass of milk. If you visit us within an hour of the incident, there could be a good chance of us saving the root and replanting it in your mouth. If the replant is unsuccessful, we do offer a variety of tooth replacement solutions that meet any budget.
If you lose a filling or a crown, it would be best to call us immediately and refrain from eating on that side of the mouth. You could feel an increased amount of sensitivity that could lead to some pain if further aggravated. Visiting us at Perfect Smiles as soon as possible to receive treatment could save you from great discomfort.
There are many ways to prevent dental emergencies, even if they are difficult to predict. Here are a few ways to avoid them:
Brush Twice a day: The best way to get ahead of plaque buildup and prevent cavities/toothaches.
Floss at least once a day: Flossing is the most under utilized routine that can save you hundreds in dental costs. Please try to floss!
Visit us Every 6 months: Our team always encourages you to get a cleaning and checkup every 6 months to monitor your oral health.
don't chew on hard objects: Unfortunately our teeth are more fragile than we think and aren't tools so please don't try to use your teeth to chew on hard ice, jawbreakers (obviously), or other hard objects/foods.
Protect your teeth: Whether you are playing a sport or you grind your teeth at night, a mouthguard is a great way to prevent dental emergencies!
We unfortunately will not know the cost to treat your dental emergencies unless you come in and we assess your situation. We do know though that a simple cavity filling will be much cheaper than an all-on-four implant restoration. We will work with you and your insurance companies to help you obtain the treatment you need at a price you can afford.
It is important to first gauge how severe your dental emergency is and to remain calm despite the damage. If you are not in too much pain, call our offices immediately so we can get you scheduled and looked at as soon as possible. If we are unable to see you the same day, remember to be cautious about what you eat on that side of the mouth and make sure to keep the area as clean as possible. If the person experiencing the emergency is bleeding profusely or in a great deal of pain, we recommend visiting the emergency room and getting the injury looked at within no more than an hour of when it happened.
Dental emergencies happen out of nowhere and without warning. Fast action is crucial during this time regardless of the severity. Whether you are dealing with a chipped tooth or a missing tooth, reacting quickly and staying calm can save you from a severe amount of pain in the future. Our staff is standing by to help restore your smile and take care of any dental emergency you may have.
