Why Do You Offer Emergency Dentistry?
Most of us are going to experience a dental emergency at some point where suddenly the teeth you haven’t paid much attention to are the only thing you can think about it.
It’s times like these when it’s good to know that your familiar family dentist will be available to help you and provide the fast relief you need. We offer 24-hour emergency dentistry at our Durham, NC practice, so a member of our team is always available to you no matter what time of the day or night it is.
How Emergency Dentistry Saves Smiles
Our goal is to help you enjoy a problem-free smile by providing the services and education you need to understand the importance of preventive care. But accidents happen and things go wrong. When they do, emergency dentistry can make the difference between saving and losing a tooth.
- Root canal treatment – When decay or infection enters your tooth, it can work its way into the area that houses nerves that keep your tooth alive. Not only can this be extremely painful, but if we don’t perform a root canal as soon as possible, you might lose the tooth.
- Relieve dental pain – If you have a hectic schedule, skipping dental visits is all too easy and can lead to painful conditions that need immediate attention to relieve your pain. Resolving pain can be as easy as a simple filling that removes decay and protects the tooth.
- Replace dental restorations – A loose crown or filling may not seem like a big deal, but we need to see you as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the tooth.
