Do you have trouble finding time to see the dentist? Between work and family time, scheduling an appointment during regular office hours can be difficult for some. Not to mention the fact that dental emergencies rarely seem to happen during a dental practice’s regular hours. Fortunately, we can see you outside of normal business hours!
Evening and Weekend Appointments
If you need to see a dentist, but can’t get to us after work before our office closes, then just let us know! We have evening and weekend spots available by appointment. We can stay open a little later or see you on Saturday or Sunday. Simply give us a call and we can arrange a visit at your earliest convenience.
What if you experience a dental emergency? This involves any injury or pain related to the teeth, gums, and mouth that is not life threatening. Examples include chipped teeth, toothaches, objects caught between teeth, loose or lost fillings and crowns, and a knocked-out tooth. If one of these situations arises, then give us a call to schedule a visit. In the meantime, you can rinse your mouth with warm water, use a piece of gauze or cloth to stem any bleeding, and place a cold compress against the side of your face to control swelling. We will see you as soon as possible to treat the problem.
Knocked-Out or Chipped Teeth
If you do have an emergency elated to chipped teeth, then try to recover any pieces you can find and bring them with you. Likewise, if you knock out a tooth, then rinse the tooth under gently running water to remove dirt and foreign debris, then place the tooth in a glass of milk or salt water (or back into the socket, biting down gently to hold in place) and bring it with you to the office. If you have any questions about our evening or weekend appointments, or about responding to dental emergencies, then contact our team today.
