Our Procedure For Same Day Dental Emergency
As soon as you begin to feel pain, discomfort, swelling or realize you may have a fractured tooth, pick up the phone immediately to dial our office. With any sort of dental emergency, especially advanced decay, the sooner we can get to the root of the problem, the less invasive the treatment plan normally is. Once you are in the chair, the first step will be xray the offending tooth or teeth to ascertain the cause of your same day dental emergency, then we will implement the treatment. Normally, the entire procedure can be accomplished in that one visit.
We are unable to prescribe medication to any patient over the phone without examining them.
Again, don’t hesitate to call Springfield dental ER office Quail Creek Dental today for your same day dental emergency service at 417-720-4075.
At least one X-ray will likely be needed in order to aid in diagnosis of your dental emergency. Our emergency dentist is often able to complete treatment during the same visit.
