At Summer Dental, we understand fitting in multiple dental appointments does not always work with your busy schedule. With all of the other obligations you face on a day-to-day basis, any opportunity to save time can help. This is why we offer convenient Same Day Dentistry. Our cutting edge technology allows us to offer this service and help you avoid missing work more than necessary. If we notice a problem at your routine cleaning, we can often just treat it right then instead of having to schedule a future appointment.
Emergency Dental Services
If an emergency situation occurs, you may feel unsure of how to react or where to turn. There’s no need to remain in pain for days while waiting for an open appointment. We will get you in the office to remedy the problem and alleviate your discomfort as soon as possible.
Here are a few common dental emergencies and what you can do before seeing us, if an emergency occurs:
Extreme tooth pain or toothache | Avoid hard foods or those high in sugar. Though you will want to relieve pain, it is best not to use aspirin on the ache. Rinse your mouth with warm water, then carefully remove any debris between your teeth with floss.
Knocked out tooth | If possible, try to place the misplaced tooth back in its socket, but do not touch the root. If this is not possible, try to keep the tooth moist by keeping it in milk, a tooth preservation solution, or in between your gums and your cheek.
Cracked or chipped tooth | Clean the crack or the chip by gently rinsing your mouth with warm water. If you notice swelling on your face, use a cold compress for relief.
Bad tongue or lip bite | Just like with a cracked or chipped teeth, be sure to clean the area of the bite and apply a cold compress to alleviate pain and swelling.
