Handling the stress and discomfort of a dental emergency becomes much easier when you can count on our 35806 dentist to deliver the care you need right away. At the office of Dr. Amy Thompson, your dental emergency is our highest priority, and our friendly professional staff will expedite the process of getting you in for an emergency visit. As soon as we receive your emergency call we strive to mitigate any anxiety you’re experiencing and help get you back on the road to oral health.
A dental emergency can come about in a number of different ways, such as a toothache, a dental injury or breaking a dental prosthesis. Out of all of these possibilities, a toothache is one of the most common causes for an emergency visit. Toothaches can manifest themselves with a variety of symptoms, including oral pain that ranges from a dull, persistent ache to sharp pain during oral function. As a first step in care, our dentist will perform a complete assessment of the problem to diagnose the underlying cause of your symptoms. Then, with an accurate diagnosis in hand, we’ll provide the precise, gentle care needed to resolve the problem and alleviate your toothache. If your tooth is damaged suddenly in an accident, such as biting down on a hard piece of food or due to a sports-related injury, it’s important to act fast. Waiting too long to seek care can result in irreversible damage but by getting to our office right away we can strive to ensure the best possible prognosis for your injured tooth.
While many dental emergencies involve discomfort, some like a broken dental appliance or prosthesis may not be painful. These types of emergencies often make it difficult to perform important daily functions such as eating, speaking and smiling. At Thompson Dentistry, we understand that these types of problems also require prompt care. When you break your denture, bridge or dental crown, our 35806 dentist will see you right away and provide a repair or replacement as quickly as possible.
At the office of Dr. Amy Thompson we are here to provide prompt, quality dental care when you need it the most. Our 35806 dentist and staff offer peace of mind to help you face any type of dental emergency. To learn more about what to do in case of a dental emergency, call today.
