Most of us will experience a dental emergency at least once in our lifetime. It can be a terrible toothache at the worst possible moment or a soccer ball to the mouth during a big game.
At Shipp Family Dentistry, we make time for emergency services in Columbus, MS.
A dental emergency may include:
- A broken or lost tooth
- A broken filling or restoration
- A severe toothache
When you’re in doubt, call us! The compassionate team at Shipp Family Dentistry can quickly determine whether you should be seen immediately. Without question, we do not want to leave you in pain.
If you have suffered trauma to your face or jaw, however, we want you to visit the nearest hospital first and contact us from there.
During your emergency treatment, we concentrate on easing your pain and saving your tooth or teeth. If you have lost a tooth, try to put it back in the socket after cleaning it with water. And don't touch the root or disturb any attached tissue. In many cases, we can replace a tooth if we see you within one or two hours!
