When it comes to dental care, especially in an emergency situation, it’s critical that you go somewhere that not only has experience with these situations but also has the ability to address your issues before they’re compounded. At Yorkshire Family Dentistry, we not only have friendly and professional staff that can handle virtually any emergency dental issue, but we are conveniently located for emergency walk-ins.
Accidents can occur at any time, day or night. Some emergencies need immediate treatment, while others can wait until normal business hours. Some common mouth injuries include cracked, broken, or knocked out teeth. Depending on the severity of the injury, it is possible that a chip or minor fracture can wait until normal business hours; however, if the crack is severe, there is a large piece of tooth missing, or the tooth is suffering from nerve damage or is knocked out, you should seek immediate medical attention. If the tooth is knocked out, handle it as little as possible. If you can, put it back in the socket and bite down on moistened gauze or a wet tea bag. If you are suffering from severe tooth pain and you think you need emergency care, call our office.
At Yorkshire Family Dentistry, we have the experience and knowledge to handle emergencies. If you have an emergency, give us a call. We are conveniently located at 3212 Hampton Hwy., Yorktown, VA 23693.
