Emergency / Same-Day Dentistry
Nobody likes to experience a dental emergency. Riverbend Family Dentistry understands that and can help get you out of pain as quickly as possible.
We also know that dental emergencies happen anytime. We do our best to reserve spaces in our schedule so patients can get in the same day. We are also available after hours for emergencies that happen when the office is closed.
A few examples of dental emergencies are:
- Cracked teeth
- Dental pain
- Loose or broken existing dental work
- Facial swelling
- Trismus (“lockjaw” or trouble opening/closing jaw)
What Should I Expect At My Visit?
During your visit, x-rays and digital images will be captured of your teeth focused on the area of pain. One of our skilled dentists will review your x-rays as well as discuss the symptoms you are experiencing to quickly and efficiently diagnose the issue. We will then provide you with treatment options to get you fixed up and out of pain. With the use of local labs and our in house lab, we can often times do repairs to existing dental work the same day.
If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please do not hesitate to give us a call and schedule an appointment so that we can help.
