We will all have a dental emergency at one time or another that requires emergency dentistry services. At Cornelius Dentistry, we know that these emergencies can be scary and painful

If you’re suffering from a dental emergency, call our Cornelius, NC dental office immediately. We will do everything we can to help you recover quickly.

Types of Dental Emergencies

You may wonder what constitutes a dental emergency. When you’re not sure, don’t hesitate to contact our office. Our knowledgeable staff will assess your dental issue quickly and provide useful instructions.

Trauma is a common dental emergency, but we advise you to always go to your nearest emergency room if you’ve had an accident. From there, our dentist can be notified.

Trauma may include sports injuries or impact mishaps that compromise your tooth or teeth.

Infections are even more common than trauma. With a dental infection, you may experience:

  • Severe Pain
  • Swelling
  • Fever
  • Headaches

If a tooth falls out or a crown breaks, this can lead to significant infection. Additionally, a tooth that has fallen out can be replaced if action is taken quickly to restore the tooth to your gum.

What to Expect During Your Dental Emergency Appointment

At Cornelius Dentistry, we will assess your situation and begin treatment immediately or during a follow-up appointment. Nevertheless, don’t worry, we will not leave you in pain or allow your oral health to be compromised.

What to expect during your appointment is largely based on the nature of your emergency. However, most emergency visits include x-rays, cause assessments, and treatment.
