Dental Emergency Appointment, Who Can Help in Raleigh Before Holidays?
The holidays seem to be “the best time of the year,” but quite frankly it also may seem like the busiest time of the year as well. Between preparing for family to visit, traveling, the kids being off from school, etc. there is a lot to keep up with this time of year. The last thing you need is a dental emergency to occur.
Whether you cracked a tooth, broke a tooth, are experiencing severe toothaches, etc. it is important that you find a valuable dental practice who can help you ease any pain or discomfort. This is why Dr. Wells of Wells Family Dental Group should initially come to mind when desiring treatment for any emergency dental needs in the Raleigh area. We offer care for emergency root canals, extractions, chipped teeth, broken crowns and a variety of other services.
If the situation applies to you that you have broken a tooth or crown, try to hold onto the pieces that have fallen out so that we can take a look at it during your appointment. This could help with our evaluation of your dental situation. In the meantime, it may help to rinse your mouth out with warm water to decrease the risk of any unwanted bacteria getting into the area.
As for any pain or swelling, a cold compress can be placed on the problem area outside of the mouth. Additionally, over-the-counter pain medication (ibuprofen) may be taken to help subside any pain or discomfort you may be experiencing. Also, be sure to try and not chew on the side of which the tooth or crown came out as chewing could further irritate the area.
Regardless, if you are in need of an appointment for any dental emergency, please call (919)-266-5332, immediately. Dr. Wells and his staff go above and beyond the extra mile for their patients by offering emergency hours for nights and weekends. At Wells Family Dental Group, we understand that life takes its toll and as a working adult, parent or busy individual, a dental office would be best equipped with functional hours for you.
