Tooth pain can be excruciating and can interfere with every aspect of your life. Sleeping, working, or concentrating on everyday tasks can seem to be impossible when dental problems are causing constant pain. Alleviating that pain with a visit to our emergency dentist is a priority for you and for us.
At Lisa Siddall, DDS, our Lake Leelanau dental office, we specialize in providing the best solutions to our dental patients and can often provide you with same-day or next-day 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 Lisa Siddall, DDS, 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. Siddall or Dr. Burke 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. Siddall or Dr. Burke 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 their neighbors. 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. Burke or Dr. Siddall 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 Dr. Siddall or Dr. Burke to schedule an exam. During your appointment, our holistic dental team 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.
Not Sure if You Need an Emergency Dentist?
If you have experienced an oral accident resulting in a tooth being knocked loose, a filling being damaged or a tooth being fractured, call Lisa Siddall, DDS immediately to schedule an emergency dentist appointment.
After your emergency dentist appointment, you can continue your care with our comprehensive list of dental services.
