Marietta & West Cobb Emergency Dentist

dental office exteriorDental emergencies can be stressful, painful experiences. In the case of most medical emergencies, a call to 911 or a trip to the emergency room is the obvious next step. However, many patients aren’t sure who to call if they experience a dental emergency. Dr. Michael L. Howard and his dedicated team are happy to help our patients whenever they need us most, and that includes emergency care. Simply contact our office and we will offer first aid tips and schedule an appointment right away to restore your smile. While we take our patients’ word for it when they tell us their experience is an emergency, here is a list of the most commonly treated dental emergencies:

Regardless of the nature of your emergency, we recommend taking a few minutes to calmly assess your health. If you’re bleeding, apply gentle pressure to try to slow the bleeding and determine the nature of your injury so you can describe it clearly to our team. Use a cold compress or ice packs at 20 minute intervals (20 on/20 off) to manage pain, prevent swelling, and slow bleeding. If you experience a dental emergency that may put your life at risk, including severe blood loss or a broken jaw, we recommend you proceed directly to the nearest emergency room. We’re happy to help you repair damaged teeth once your health is no longer in danger. While you can’t plan for a dental emergency, you can take steps to avoid one. Never use your teeth to open tough packaging or crack shells, don’t chew on ice or other hard objects, brush and floss every day, and visit our team twice a year.
