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.
