Dental trauma in Greenville
It is impossible to determine when you may need the services of an emergency dentist. Urgent Care Dental is an after-hours dental practice. When you come to our practice, you will be seen by an expert and highly trained Greenville dentist; our top-notch dentists are Dr. Scott Loeser, Dr. Jennifer Chan, Dr. Kyung E. Sung, and Dr. Jason Katz.
When you have dental trauma, treatment cannot wait. That is when you want to come to see our Greenville dentist at our urgent dental practice. At our office, we are fully equipped to handle all types of dental emergencies. Dental trauma can include a tooth that is fully knocked out of your mouth, or a tooth that is pushed up into the gums. If a tooth is knocked out, you should immediately contact our dental office and our office staff will give you instructions on how to safely transport the tooth to our office. If the tooth is well taken care of, and you come to our office promptly, chances can be excellent that the tooth can be successfully re-implanted in your mouth. However, each case will vary. Sometimes a tooth can chip, crack, or otherwise break. This may not even hurt when it occurs. However, if a large piece of tooth breaks off it can leave nerve endings exposed to air, and can be extremely painful in some cases. We can also help people who suddenly lose a filling or the crown covering a tooth. Losing a crown cannot only be a painful tooth problem, but it can also be a cosmetic tooth problem. We are able to immediately fix these problems at our dental office. Additionally, when a crown is lost, the underlying tooth can be damaged if the crown is not there to protect it. The sooner a dental emergency or dental trauma is treated, the more likely it is that the tooth can be saved, or that necessary treatment can be minimalized.
