Dental emergencies in Surprise can happen at the most inconvenient times. We can treat a variety of traumatic dental injuries, including teeth that have been chipped, loosened, or knocked out entirely. Please call our office for assistance so you can:
Over the years, Dr. Eric Wendelschafer has provided care for just about every type of dental emergency. No matter what your individual situation is, he and our skilled team will be able to help.
Below is a list of a few common dental emergencies, along with important tips on what to do before you’re seen in our office. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call.
Toothache – First rinse your mouth with warm water, then apply an ice pack or cold compress to the outside of your cheek.
Loose Tooth – You can use ice on your cheek to relieve any pain and swelling. Taking an over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen or acetaminophen will also help with pain.
Knocked-Out Tooth – Be sure to pick up the tooth by the crown (white part) and not the roots. Place it in a container of milk, salt water, or saliva, and bring it to the office with you.
Loose Dental Crown – Try to reattach the crown using a small amount of dental cement or toothpaste. Bring it with you to our office if it won’t stay in place.
Soft Tissue Injury – Using a small amount of gauze or a wet tea bag, try to stop any bleeding from your gums, cheeks, tongue, or lips.
We would be happy to handle any dental emergencies you have right here at Great Smiles Dental Care. Our team has the experience you want when your mouth is hurting and your smile is in jeopardy. Dr. Wendelschafer has helped many area residents through dental crises, and he can help you as well.
Dental emergencies can happen at any time. If you are experiencing an emergency and don’t have dental insurance, we’ll work with you to get you the care your smile needs. We offer a number of payment options, including third-party financing through CareCredit and LendingClub. We even provide in-house financing for some emergency treatment.
Yes, we can. There are many ways we can help you through your dental emergency. A tooth-colored filling will repair a cavity and make chewing easier. Root canal treatment can stop your toothache and save your tooth from extraction in most cases. If an extraction becomes necessary, we can handle it in-house without referring you to an oral surgeon.
