When you’re experiencing severe pain or you’ve broken a tooth, it’s clear that you need emergency dental services right away. Sometimes oral injuries and chipped teeth may not seem like a dental emergency, but you can never be too sure. The team at Sloan & Sloan wants you to know that the next best step is to always give us a call at 919-258-9321. Not only can we get you scheduled, but we can provide advice to keep you stable before you arrive for your emergency appointment.
Sloan & Sloan Dentistry provides emergency dental treatment for patients in Broadway, Sanford, Harnett County, North Carolina, and the surrounding area.
If you think you may be having a dental emergency, for starter, give our office a call. It doesn’t matter if your tooth is hurting severely from a cavity, broken tooth, or physical trauma, calling us gives you a chance to schedule an appointment. One of our team members will gladly inform you of what to do next to manage before you get to our dental office. In the meantime, here’s what Dr. Don recommends to improve your condition depending on the type of emergency you’re having.
When it comes to avoiding dental emergencies, the best thing you can do is practice daily oral care (brushing and flossing) and maintain routine checkups and cleanings at our dental office. These habits allow you to catch problems before they become dental emergencies. You’ll also want to avoid chewing on extremely hard foods or inedible objects (pens, packages, ice cubes, hard candy), all of which can cause teeth to crack or chip. Use a mouthguard if you play in contact sports.
