No time is a good time for a painful dental emergency. When you chip your tooth mere hours before a big date, finding emergency dental care becomes a top priority.

How to Find Local Emergency Dentists

What’s the fastest way to get emergency dental care near me?

Fortunately, we have emergency dentists in Atlanta who can provide the emergency dental care and pain relief that you need during regular business hours. Instead of waiting for days to resolve your dental problem, call our emergency dental office and make an appointment. In many cases, we can offer a same-day appointment. Our goal is to diagnose the problem, end your pain, and make sure that you get the necessary treatment to prevent a recurrence.

The Emergency Dental Services That You Need

Our emergency dental services cover virtually any dental crisis. We manage symptoms, restore appearances, and protect your long-term dental health by addressing problems before they become more advanced. Here are a few of the urgent dental care services that we provide:

  • Toothache diagnosis and treatment
  • Management of impacted wisdom tooth symptoms
  • Chipped and cracked enamel repair
  • Replacement of dental fillings and crowns
  • Treatment for orthodontic pain or injury
  • Dental infection treatment

When Is It Time for Emergency Dental Treatment?

When are my symptoms bad enough for me to look for emergency dental care near me?

If you’re in pain or your dental problem has affected your normal functioning or threatened your dental health, don’t hesitate to request emergency dental care. The following problems are all treated by our providers on an emergency basis.

Tooth Fractures and Breaks

A broken or fractured tooth should be treated as soon as possible to avoid infection and continued damage to the tooth structure. If your damaged tooth has sharp areas, cover them with dental wax until you can see a dentist.

Knocked-Out Teeth

Emergency dentists can often reimplant a tooth that has been knocked out if you handle it carefully and get to the office quickly. Never touch the root of the tooth. Rinse it with clean water, and store it in its socket or a glass of milk to keep it moist.

Severe Toothaches

A severe toothache can have many causes, and some can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. If you have severe tooth pain plus a fever, ear pain, pressure, or swelling, be sure to request an emergency appointment as soon as possible.

Unusual Tooth Sensitivity

If a tooth that was previously normal suddenly becomes extremely sensitive to temperature, you could have a tooth fracture or infection. Schedule urgent dental care to address sudden or unusual sensitivity.

Dental Decay and Cavities

Ongoing dental decay eventually exposes nerve tissues and leads to pain and sensitivity. Our emergency dentists can treat both the symptoms and the root causes of tooth decay.

Abscessed Tooth

Gum disease, trauma, and decay can lead to bacterial infection of tooth roots. When the infection forms an abscess, you’ll experience severe tooth pain, facial swelling, fever, bad breath, gum sores, and swollen glands. Because an abscessed tooth can lead to serious complications, contact our emergency dental office to schedule treatment without delay if these symptoms develop.

Dislodged or Loose Fillings

If your filling falls into your sink or just feels unstable inside your tooth, the health of your tooth is at risk. Before symptoms get worse, contact us so that we can replace the filling and restore your tooth’s structural integrity.

Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations

A broken crown or lost restoration material affects both your appearance and your dental health. Our emergency dentists create both temporary and long-term solutions to restore your smile and protect your teeth.

Orthodontic Pain or Injury

Orthodontic braces can break or become misaligned, which can result in mouth pain, irritation, and even injury. Our dentists will stabilize your braces, relieve any associated pain and make adjustments to prevent future problems.

Teeth Grinding and Worn Tooth Enamel

If your grinding habits are damaging the chewing surfaces of your teeth, we can help by reinforcing the enamel and fitting you with a custom night guard to deter your teeth grinding habits.

Sinus Pressure

While sinus pressure is often the result of an upper respiratory problem, it may also have a dental origin. If you’re suffering from unexplained sinus pressure, let our dentists help by discovering or ruling our potential dental causes.

Is the Emergency Medical or Dental?

A blow to my face caused my teeth to break. Should I go to the hospital or the emergency dental office near me?

When a dental crisis coincides with a serious medical emergency, you need more advanced treatment than our emergency dentists in Atlanta can supply. If you experience a blow to your head, face or jaw, severe swelling or uncontrollable bleeding, obtain treatment at a hospital emergency room or dial 911.

What Does a Dental Emergency Visit Cost?

The cost of your emergency dental care depends on the severity of your condition and what treatments are needed to resolve it. Our emergency dentists can only provide an estimate after assessing your needs. We accept most dental plans, so your coverage will probably reduce your out-of-pocket cost. If you don’t have insurance, you can enjoy significant savings by joining our DentRite® discount plan. The plan is not an insurance policy, but it can reduce the cost of many treatments by 20 to 70 percent. Contact us for more details about DentRite® and our convenient financing options.

The emergency dental office near me has closed for the day, but I need to see a dentist. Should I wait until tomorrow?

A minor dental issue can wait until morning, but if you have severe pain or other serious problems when our emergency dentists are not available, please don’t risk your dental health by delaying your treatment. Proceed to a hospital emergency room to obtain immediate care. If your emergency recurs or you require further treatment, our emergency dentists in Atlanta will be available as soon as business hours resume.
