Unfortunately, you don’t think about dental trauma or emergencies until they happen. While they’re not often categorized as medical emergencies, dental issues can cause severe crippling. If you or a loved one is faced with a dental emergency, it should be treated immediately. That’s where the expert dental staff at Bright Smile Dental can help. We can provide the Worthington area by relieving toothaches, executing emergency root canals and fixing cracked or missing teeth. Bright Smile Dental’s emergency dental clinic can help alleviate your dental emergency as soon as possible.
Our Emergency Dental Services
Bright Smile Dental’s staff can provide relief for the following:
- Toothaches: While toothaches might seem like a minor inconvenience, they can cause major pain when left unattended. They can also lead to or aggravate tooth decay. If you’re experiencing a toothache, don’t wait. Let Dr. Cheung and the rest of the staff provide you with efficient toothache remedies.
- Breaks, Chips or Cracks: Accidents happen. If you’ve received an unexpected break, chip or crack, we recommend cleaning your mouth with warm water and applying a cold compress on your face to reduce pain and swelling. Then stop by Bright Smile Dental, where we can reattach a broken or chipped piece of tooth. Simply bring your tooth in a wet towel.
- Loosened or Avulsed Teeth: Sports or any other physical activity can, unfortunately, cause injured teeth. Often, in sports, teeth can become loosened or completely avulsed. If this happens, come to Bright Smile Dental. Your tooth may be briefly attached until you see the dentist, but this depends on the situation. If that isn’t possible, we recommend that you rinse the tooth under the faucet without rubbing it. Rubbing a tooth could cause root damage.
