Although preventative dental care can help prevent issues such as cavities, infection, and decay, on occasion, patients experience dental emergencies. At Village Family Dentist in Granville, Ohio, our emergency dentists understand the importance of addressing dental trauma as soon as possible and for that reason always accept emergency walk-ins at our office.
Toothaches typically develop over time, however, in certain situations, a patient might experience sudden severe pain. This can be caused by a crack, exposed root or even a cavity. If you experience dental pain, don’t hesitate to contact our Granville dental office; we would be more than happy to provide a dental examination to decide which treatment would be best for your case.
If you have managed to chip or crack a tooth, we recommend immediate treatment. Addressing the problem as soon as possible can help prevent further damage, decay, and even infection. Depending on the severity of dental damage, we may recommend fillings, inlays, onlays or even crowns.
Sometimes a patient may have an accident that results in a missing tooth. Not only can this be embarrassing, but it can also cause dental issues such as shifting of teeth and even decay. Depending on your situation and desires, Village Family Dentist’s emergency dentist can create a treatment plan just for you.
Certain injuries don’t manage to knock a tooth completely out, instead leaving it loose and dislodged. If treatment happens quickly, we may be able to save the tooth. If the tooth cannot be recovered, we may discuss other treatment options such as a bridge or implants.
Dental interventions don’t always last forever, depending upon how the patient cares for them. If you notice any of your dental treatments have fallen out, contact our Granville office, and we can quickly repair the issue so that further damage does not occur.
