Emergency Dentist Appointments
Tooth pain can be excruciating and can interfere with every other aspect of your life. Sleeping, working, or concentrating on everyday tasks can seem to be impossible when dental problems are causing constant pain.
At Woodland Family Dental, we specialize in providing the best solutions to our dental patients and can often provide you with same-day or next-day emergency dentist appointment times to help you manage pain and ensure your oral health!
Knocked Out Tooth
A knocked out tooth is a common dental problem. At Woodland Family Dental, we strive to immediately take care of our patients who are experiencing this painful dental emergency.
Teeth can be incredibly strong, but they can still chip, break or crack (fracture). Remember, treating a broken tooth at home is not an option; you need to see Dr. Welton as soon as possible!
Broken Dental Filling
As advanced as modern dentistry is, broken fillings can still happen. The most important thing to remember is not to delay seeing Dr. Welton to get treatment for a broken filling. Many teeth can start out with a small break and would only need a filling, but the longer treatment is delayed, the bigger the problem becomes.
Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of your entire mouth, including your healthy teeth and gums. Fortunately, we can help! If treated immediately, these infections are easy to recover from and can be prevented from causing lasting damage to your mouth. After treatment, Dr. Welton will likely prescribe an antibiotic to treat the dental infection and prevent complications.
Are you experiencing tooth pain? Does it hurt to chew or when air touches your tooth?
The first step to take if you are suffering with persistent toothache (for longer than a day or two) is to call Woodland Family Dental to schedule an exam.
During your appointment, our dental team wiill likely x-ray your tooth to help determine if a cavity, crack, abscess or other problem is causing your pain before discussing treatment options with you.
The first few moments after an oral accident are vital in determining if your recovery will go smoothly. Dental trauma due to an accident is common and can happen due to motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries or physical altercations.
If you have experienced an oral accident resulting in a tooth being knocked loose, a filling being damaged or a tooth being fractured, call Dr. Welton at our Post Falls office immediately to schedule an emergency appointment.
After your emergency appointment, Woodland Family Dental has a full menu of dental services available to keep your smile healthy or continue with the next step in care from your emergency.
