Same-Day Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies almost never happen at a convenient time. Pain, swelling, lost restorations – they can all disrupt your schedule and keep you from doing the things you need to do.
When you have a dental emergency, our Charlotte Progressive Dentistry team is here for you. We treat most dental emergencies on the same day so you can get back to the things that are important to you.
Even if you are a new patient to our practice, we welcome you to our office. Dr. Greg Camp or Dr. Susana Junco will make every effort to help you feel like yourself again.
Common Dental Emergencies
When you experience a dental emergency, call us right away. Dental pain rarely goes away on its own and often worsens over time. Some of the most common dental emergencies we treat include:
- Broken tooth
- Lost restoration
- Gum pain
- Accident or trauma
If you have an accident with head or neck injuries or uncontrolled bleeding, you should call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. You may have an injury that requires immediate attention.
Your Emergency Exam
Whether you are a new patient or an existing patient, when you contact our office with a dental emergency, we will do our best to see you in our office on the same day. We know that having a dental emergency can be a traumatic experience and we are here to help. The sooner you call our office, the sooner we can help you feel good again.
We will start by taking an x-ray of the area and making a diagnosis regarding your condition. Depending on the treatment required to restore your oral health, we may treat your condition on the same day or address your pain first and then schedule your treatment for another day. Either way, we will make sure that when you leave, you are more comfortable and have a clear picture of your oral health needs.
We will schedule a follow-up to your emergency treatment to make sure your condition is healing properly and that you are well on the road to dental wellness.
Even if you have not been to the dentist in some time, we can create a treatment plan that will outline your path to good oral health. We can help you avoid dental emergencies in the future.
