Sure, your dentist will likely have appointments available when you schedule your next routine dental checkup. These visits typically take place every six months, so planning one after the other gives our practice plenty of advance notice on when to expect you again. You may be less certain of what can be done for you if you find yourself in need of emergency dental work. While this is something that you will hopefully never need, it is important to know that you can receive care on short notice. Our Shrewsbury, MA dentist’s office is ready to take on your treatment if you find yourself needing urgent attention. By scheduling care on short notice, we can ensure that you spend less time in pain, while also making it more likely that we can save a badly damaged tooth.
Our Patients Can Schedule Emergency Dental Appointments
We want our patients to know that they can reach out to us if they have a problem that might be an emergency. This means that if you chip, crack, or otherwise break a tooth – or if you have a tooth that is loosened or lost – you can receive prompt attention. Our goal when treating you is to address the effect your emergency is having on your health, while also making plans to fully restore your smile. This can ensure that you regain a healthy, happy smile as soon as possible!
Taking Care Of A Damaged Tooth
If your tooth is cracked, chipped, or partially broken after an injury, we can take the appropriate steps to restore its health. In many situations involving a dental emergency, a tooth can require endodontic work. This means that your dentist will take on internal problems that threaten a tooth’s health before restoring it. In order to protect the tooth and restore its appearance, we can place a dental crown over it. Thanks to our E4D technology at our practice, we can actually create a custom crown for you in as little as one appointment!
Arranging Emergency Care For A Dislodged Tooth
If your tooth is knocked loose or completely lost, bring the matter to our attention as soon as possible. By taking action quickly, we can help you save the tooth from being lost. If we are not able to save the tooth, you should know that we are able to place a permanent prosthetic. We can even discuss having a dental implant put in place to hold your restoration, which can provide lasting functional support as well as stability for neighboring teeth roots.
