Should I make an emergency dental appointment?

Often, the pain due to a toothache or infection starts small and increases with time. If you have a toothache, swelling, or a broken tooth, it’s a good idea to give your Chattanooga emergency dentist a call. Dr. Primesh Modi is experienced in treating many common dental emergencies:

  • Broken tooth
  • Infection and swelling
  • Knocked-out or dislodged tooth
  • Broken crown, filling, or dental bridge
  • Object lodged in the gums
  • Sports trauma
  • Car accidents

At Bridge Dental Care, we welcome dental emergencies and prioritize treatment – often treating painful dental emergencies on the same day to provide relief and get you back to your busy schedule.

In some cases, we can put off a dental emergency appointment until the next convenient time. Situations like a broken crown or filling could wait a day or two, but we don’t recommend that you go any longer than that before visiting our Chattanooga dental office for an exam. Leaving a tooth exposed could lead to decay, advanced fractures, split teeth, pain, or even a root canal infection that requires more complex treatment or even an extraction.

We understand that dental emergencies can feel painful. Our gentle dental team is here when you need us most. Give us a call if you notice changes to your oral health.

COV-19 Update(5/5/20):

We are opening up all services at our office effective 5/6/2020.  We appreciate you for being patient with us as we navigate through this pandemic.  Before the pandemic started, we have always abided by the strict infection protocols .  We have implemented a few more additional safety measures for COV-19 to help minimize the risk of spreading the virus.  You will notice some differences for your appointment.  Here are some of the changes you will see:
  1. We will pre-screen all patients with a questionnaire.  We will call you before your appointment and then ask you again when you come in.
  2. We will take your temperatures at the time of checking in.
  3. We will be limiting access to the waiting room for patients and patient’s parent or legal guardian.  We are trying to minimize the number of people who may come in contact with one another in passing.
  4. Our waiting room will be devoid of reading materials, toys, etc.
  5. Appointments will be made to help decrease wait times and to allow for social distancing.
  6. We will have you rinsed with 1.5% Hydrogen Peroxide for one minute when you are seated.
We appreciate you helping us to adjust to these changes.  We want to ensure that our patients and our team are kept safe during these times.  Eventually, we will overcome this challenge and get back to some form of normalcy.  Thank you so much for being our patient and hope to see you soon!

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at (423)855-1400.
Cordially yours,

Bridge Dental Care Team
