In the case of a Medical Emergency, Call 9-1-1.
Could your recent tooth pain be considered a dental emergency? And what are your options for treatment? At Aberdeen Dental Group, we know that unexpected tooth pain happens, so we offer emergency dental care!
How Can I Get Help for My Dental Emergency?
At ADG, we are on-call for dental emergencies, and we can treat a variety of traumatic dental injuries, including teeth that have been chipped, moved, or knocked out entirely. Even if it’s after hours, you can call either of our offices (Peachtree City – 770-487-8298; Newnan – 770-254-9332), and we will help you get the care that you need! After all, that’s what family is for.
How Do I Know if I Have a True Dental Emergency?
Dental emergencies include knocked out teeth, teeth shifted out of alignment, damage to mouth tissues (lips, cheeks, tongue, etc.), or fractured teeth. In the case of teeth that have been knocked out, fractured, and jarred out of alignment, getting prompt dental care (ideally within 30 minutes of the accident) can save the tooth and allow it to reattach without long-term damage.
If you are not sure whether or not you are having a true dental emergency, answer the following questions:
- Are you bleeding from the mouth?
- Are you in severe pain?
- Do you have any loose or missing teeth?
- Have you been hit in the face or mouth?
- Do you have any swelling in the mouth or facial area?
- Do you have any bulges, swelling or knots on your gums?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then give us a call to help figure out what the best steps are! There’s a strong possibility that you will need to be seen right away.
