Our Emergency Dental Services
Antelope Creek Family Dentistry provides a variety of emergency dental care services. We can offer your urgent and compassionate care for any of the following issues:
#1 Broken or Fractured Teeth
To prevent further tooth or nerve damage, broken or fractured teeth require emergency dental care. If possible, collect the tooth or tooth fragments and rinse with warm water and bring them to your appointment.
#2 Cracked Teeth
Cracked teeth can be a dental emergency, especially if you experience pain. A cracked tooth can lead to nerve damage, infection, or gum damage, so it's important to contact your emergency dentist as soon as possible.
#3 Knocked-Out Teeth
If you have your tooth knocked out from a clumsy tumble on the sidewalk or a spirited game of football, our team can help you save your tooth and restore your smile. When your tooth is knocked out, you must collect it and rinse it with warm water.
You can try to gently place it back in the socket or store it in a cup of warm water or your saliva like you would with a broken or fractured tooth. Antelope Creek Family Dentistry can help secure the tooth in its rightful place.
#3 Severe Tooth Pain or Pressure
Tooth pain and pressure can be caused by many different issues, some of them quite serious, such as an impacted wisdom tooth or an abscess. If you have persistent, severe tooth pain or pressure, please contact us so we can diagnose the cause and provide swift treatment.
#4 Tooth Sensitivity
Tooth sensitivity can occur for several reasons, and it can make it nearly impossible to chew your food or enjoy a hot or cold beverage. To determine the real reason why your tooth is sensitive, it’s best to come into our dental office, so we can find the cause and provide a solution.
#5 Abscessed Tooth
An abscessed tooth is infected and requires urgent care to prevent damage or any other complications. Symptoms of an abscessed tooth may include extreme pain, facial and gum swelling, and bad breath. Our team at Antelope Creek Family Dentistry can help relieve these symptoms and treat the abscessed tooth so you no longer experience pain or discomfort.
#6 Lost or Loose Fillings
Lost or loose fillings can lead to tooth decay and put your smile at risk of other complications. We can repair any loose fillings and replace lost fillings in a single dental appointment.
#7 Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations
A broken crown or lost restoration is more than just a cosmetic issue; it can also put your teeth and gums at risk for infection. To restore your smile with a temporary or permanent solution, please contact our dental office as soon as possible.
#8 Worn Tooth Enamel Caused by Bruxism
Grinding your teeth can cause a lot of damage to your mouth’s overall health. For example, it can overwork your jaw joints, cause pain and soreness, and wear down your teeth’s enamel. We are skilled in treating symptoms associated with teeth grinding, and we can provide you with customized splint therapy or nightguards to relieve your pain and protect your oral health.
