Emergency Dental Care

Man with tooth painWe always reserve time throughout our schedule to accommodate same day dental emergencies. If you’re experiencing discomfort or need immediate attention, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible.

Southern Dental Care – Smile By Design is equipped to handle last-minute emergency cases for people of all ages.

What to Expect

During emergency appointments, our top priority is to address the cause of your discomfort and get you out of pain as quickly as we can.

Typically, we provide immediate, interim pain relief at the time of your visit. Should more complex care be required, we can book you for such procedures at a later time.

Broken Fillings: Some of the most common dental emergencies that we treat are broken or lost dental fillings, especially in front teeth (because they’re visible to everyone else). If you’re not in pain, you might be able to wait until the next business day to see our dentist.

In the meantime, avoid eating on that side of your mouth. You can also take over the counter pain relievers (anti-inflammatories work best) as long as you’re medically fit to do so.

Knocked Out Teeth: Knowing what to do about a knocked out tooth can help you save your smile. The key is to act quickly. Initially, the first thing you should do is to locate the missing tooth fragment and then contact us straightaway.

In the meantime, store your tooth in a sealed container where it’s completely submerged in milk, contact solution or water with a pinch of salt. If there’s visible debris, you can gently rinse it off with running water. However, do not attempt to scrub the tooth clean (this can prevent reimplantation).

To achieve the best results, it’s crucial to see our emergency dentist within the next hour.
