Are you looking for an emergency dentist? If you have experienced an oral emergency such as a tooth being knocked loose, a filling being damaged or a tooth being fractured, call Sorenson Dental immediately to schedule an emergency appointment. Do not wait to receive care, as time is of the essence in obtaining good outcomes from these emergency situations.
Contact us right away if you are experiencing any of the following dental emergencies:
A knocked out tooth is a common dental problem. At Sorenson Dental, we strive to immediately take care of our patients who are experiencing this painful dental emergency.
Teeth can be incredibly strong, but they can still chip, break or crack (fracture). Remember, treating a broken tooth at home is not an option - you need to see Dr. Sorenson as soon as possible!
Even with modern dental advancements and tooth-colored fillings, broken fillings can still happen. The most important thing to remember is not to delay in getting treatment for a broken filling. Many teeth can start out with a small break that would only need a filling, but the longer treatment is delayed, the bigger the problem becomes.
Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors. Fortunately, we can help! If treated immediately, these infections are easy to recover from and will not necessarily leave lasting damage to your mouth. After treatment, Dr. Sorenson will likely prescribe an antibiotic to make sure the abscess is completely gone.
Cavity/Sore or Loose Tooth
Are you experiencing tooth pain? Does it hurt to chew or when air touches your tooth?
The first step to take if you are suffering with persistent toothache (for longer than a day or two) is to call Dr. Sorenson to schedule an exam.
During your appointment, Dr. Sorenson will likely x-ray your tooth to help determine if a cavity, crack, abscess or other problem is causing your pain before discussing treatment options with you.
Dental Trauma/Oral Accident
The first few moments after an oral accident happens are vital in making sure your recovery will go smoothly. Dental trauma due to an accident is fairly common and can happen due to motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries or physical altercations.
