Tooth pain can be excruciating and can interfere with every aspect of your life. Sleeping well, working productively, or concentrating on everyday tasks can be impossible when dental problems are causing constant pain.
At Sterling Dental, we specialize in providing the best solutions to our patients and can often provide you with a same-day or next-day emergency dentist appointment time to help you manage pain and ensure your oral health!
Emergency Dental Services:
Knocked Out Tooth
A knocked out tooth is a common dental problem. At Sterling 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. Windom or Dr. Lemke as soon as possible!
Broken Tooth Filling
As advanced as modern dentistry is, broken tooth fillings can still happen. The most important thing to remember is not to delay seeing Dr. Lemke or Dr. Windom 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 dental infections are easy to recover from and can be prevented from causing lasting damage to your mouth. After treatment, our dental team 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 is to call our Sterling office to schedule an exam. During your appointment, Dr. Windom or Dr. Lemke will 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 or a dental emergency resulting in a tooth being knocked loose, a filling being damaged or a tooth being fractured, call Dr. Lemke or Dr. Windom immediately to schedule an emergency dentist appointment with us at our Sterling dental practice.
