Although no one likes to admit it, emergencies do happen! At Smiles of Aurora, we always provide same-day and next-day emergency dental appointments at our Aurora dentist office. We're here to give you relief fast!
If you are suffering from an oral injury, a broken filling or crown, or excruciating tooth or gum pain, it's imperative that you call us right away to schedule an appointment. Enduring pain or tooth damage without treatment from a dentist can actually worsen your prognosis and cause permanent damage to your mouth.
Offering same-day and next-day emergency dental appointments, Smiles of Aurora is here to address a long list of dental emergencies, including:
Knocked Out Teeth
A knocked out tooth not only looks and feels unpleasant, it can also adversely impact your total health. The American Association of Endodontists recommends seeing a dentist within 30 minutes of the injury to help save the tooth and prevent infection.
Broken or Cracked Tooth
Broken, cracked, or chipped teeth must be addressed immediately - even if there is no sensitivity or pain in the area. If left untreated and exposed, the pulp is at risk for developing an infection in the bone or tissue, requiring a root canal treatment.
Broken Dental Filling
If your dental filling breaks, don't delay in scheduling an appointment for urgent dental care immediately. The longer treatment is delayed, the more severe the fracture can become, requiring more invasive treatment to fix.
Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors. But, when treated immediately, our team can prevent lasting damage. After treatment, our doctors will likely prescribe an antibiotic to treat the dental infection and prevent any further complications.
Does it hurt to chew or when air touches your tooth? If you are suffering with a persistent toothache (for longer than a day or two), call Smiles of Aurora to schedule an exam. During your appointment, our Aurora dentists will x-ray your tooth to help determine if a cavity, crack, abscess, or other problem is causing your pain.
