How to Know Whether You Need a Waterford Emergency Dentist:
Tip #1: Ask yourself this simple question: Am I in pain? If the answer is yes, you can consider it an emergency and take steps to be seen in our practice as soon as possible. At Clarkston Village Dental, we make time in our everyday dental care to treat patients with dental emergencies and we warmly welcome walk-ins. If you’re in pain and need to see a dentist immediately, give us a call at 248-625-2066. We’ll offer advice over the phone to manage pain while we arrange for your appointment.
Tip #2: Not in pain? It still may be an urgent matter. If you’re not experiencing pain, there are other determining factors regarding the level of urgency for your situation. If you’ve suffered an injury or damage to your tooth or soft tissue inside of your mouth, it’s probably an emergency. Teeth that have been knocked out, chipped or broken should be looked at as soon as possible. If you’ve lost a tooth, try to place it back into its proper space, but don’t force it. If you’re unable to fit the tooth back into place, try to hold the tooth between your cheek and gums until you are able to be seen by a Waterford emergency dentist. Time is of the essence if you want to try to save the tooth.
Tip #3: Keep the emergency number of our practice in a place where you’ll be able to find it quickly in the event that you have an urgent dental care issue. Your family’s personal phone book is a great place to keep our number. File our address and number under the ‘D’ heading in order to save time while dealing with a dental emergency. If at all possible, make a call to our staff while on route to our practice so that we can provide you with the best possible advice in how to protect your teeth from further damage. We’ll also help you mitigate pain levels while you’re on your way.
The best advice we can give you is to treat all dental situations as emergencies and try to get in to a Waterford emergency dentist if at all possible- even if you’re not quite sure whether your circumstances qualify as an emergency. We understand that dental emergencies don’t just happen during our regular business hours, and our staff strives to be exceptionally accommodating to urgent care patients.
Call our office at 248-625-2066 for dental emergencies from toothaches and pain to sports injuries to ensure you experience prompt and professional dental care that will protect your teeth from additional damage that is associated with a prolonged wait time to see a dentist.
