Convenient Office Hours
Most dental offices in the Raleigh area are only open during regular business hours. If you or a family member works, attends school, or participates in sports or extracurricular activities, there is a rare chance that you will be able to schedule an appointment Monday through Friday between 8 am and 5 pm.
Wells Family Dentistry recognizes how challenging it may be for some families to visit the dentist during these times. Therefore, our office is conveniently open on some nights and weekends. You and your family can stop in on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings until 7:00 pm as well as Saturdays from 8:00 to 2:00 pm. With us, you never have to worry about missing work or working around your child’s busy schedule.
Frequently Asked Questions About Emergency Dentistry
What constitutes a dental emergency?
While pain and discomfort are common during dental emergency, they don’t always indicate a dental emergency. Extreme pain and bleeding as well as loose, broken, or missing teeth are the most common signs of dental emergencies. Pain stemming from direct trauma may also be a dental emergency.
How long do toothaches last?
The cause of the pain will typically dictate how long a toothache lasts. However, if you experience symptoms for more than 24 hours, you should visit your dentist as soon as possible.
What should I do if I think I have a dental emergency?
If you believe you have a dental emergency, reach out to your dentist right away and schedule an appointment as soon as you can. Remember that the sooner you can see your dentist, the greater their chances of resolving the problem or saving your tooth.
How can I avoid dental emergencies?
While you can’t avoid all dental emergencies, you can reduce the risk of some of them by practicing good oral hygiene like brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing every night before you go to bed. You can also wear a mouthguard if you play football and other contact sports.
What should I include in a dental emergency kit?
The ideal way to prepare for a dental emergency is to create your own dental emergency kit. Your kit can include items such as a floss, a small flashlight, wax, cotton balls, and a saline solution. Be sure to keep it in an easily accessible place.
Is there anything I can do to find relief from pain and swelling?
Pain and swelling are two common side effects of dental emergencies. If you experience them, take some anti-inflammatory medication like Ibuprofen. We discourage aspirin as it can thin your blood and worsen the issue.
We are also conveniently located close to Wake Forest, North Raleigh, Rolesville and Interstate 540. If you live in Wake County, you will not have to travel a great distance to get to our office.
