Same Day Appointments – Many Insurance Plans Accepted
In most situations you would simply call your regular dentist if you have a painful toothache, if your child has broken a tooth, or if you have dentures, crowns or bridge work that are in need of repair.
However, what do you do when these problems happen late at night or on the weekend when your regular dentist’s office is closed?
Without access to emergency dental care you would have to suffer all evening or all weekend until you can reach your dentist who is only available during normal business hours. Now that you’ve found this website you know that you do NOT need to suffer in pain because you have found a dentist in Memphis who you can call 24/7 and is ready, willing and able to treat patients when other dentists won’t.
Why Do We Offer Urgent Dental Care?
The truth is that most dental emergencies occur at the most inopportune times – on the weekends and in the evenings. That’s why we decided to make our services available to the residents of Memphis in Shelby County, TN.
For your convenience we also accept payment by credit card and we accept most dental insurance plans.
Here’s some information that can help you if you have a dental emergency…
Do You Have a Broken or Knocked Out Tooth?
What most people don’t realize is that an injured tooth begins to die within 15 to 30 minutes of impact. That’s why it’s critical to see your dentist right away after any tooth trauma. Knowing what to do when dental accidents occur can mean the difference between saving and losing a tooth. Here are a few tips:
If you break a tooth…
Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to reduce any swelling, then call a 24 hour emergency dentist to make an immediate appointment. If you can find the broken part of your tooth, be sure to take it with you.
If your tooth is knocked out…
Pick it up by the top, not the root, and don’t rinse it or remove any attached bits of tissue. If you can, carefully re-insert the tooth into its socket and gently hold it in place. If that’s not possible, put it in a cup of milk or saline solution, or hold it between the cheek and gums so it doesn’t dry out. Then call a 24 hour emergency dentist as quickly as possible.
If you are experiencing significant pain you should avoid using aspirin as it can cause additional bleeding. Instead use Ibuprofen to treat your pain. Never apply any pain killer to the gum near the injured tooth as this can lead to burning of the gum tissue. Also, never rely on solely on pain medication. While it can help to eliminate the pain, it will not treat the cause of it. We will need to examine your mouth to determine the correct treatment to use for your injury.
Questions Your Emergency Dentist Will Need You to Answer…
When calling an emergency dentist’s office it is helpful if you can answer the following questions so that they can provide the best dental care possible:
- What is the nature of your dental emergency?
- When did it start?
- Is there any swelling?
- What is the degree of the pain, on a scale of 1-10?
- Are you having any hot or cold sensitivity?
- What medications are you taking? Antibiotics? Pain killers?
