You’re playing sports with your friends, and as you’re running to catch the ball, you suddenly and violently run into someone. Everything seems okay until you run your tongue over your teeth and feel a new space. One of your teeth has just been knocked out. What do you do next?
It’s early and you wake up your child for school. They typically aren’t happy to be awoken, but they seem to be particular cranky today. They tell you that they wouldn’t sleep because their tooth was hurting so much. You can’t send them to school like this, so what should you do?
In either case, the answer is the same: call Dothan Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Geoff Gaunt and our team are capable of handling all kinds of dental emergencies right in our office, including the examples listed above. If you or a loved one ever find yourselves in some kind of dental pain, just give us a call, and we’ll take care of you. We always try to see emergency patients the same day that they call in, because when you’re hurting, you shouldn’t be left to wait.
Even if you’re unsure whether or not your situation is an emergency, just give us a call, and we’ll let you know exactly what you should do next.
However, if you have suffered a broken bone or can’t stop bleeding after 10 minutes, be sure to head to your local emergency room first and call us only after you have been cleared to leave.
