If you’re suffering with tooth pain and need an emergency dentist appointment, our Wilmington, NC dental office will help you schedule the earliest available dentist appointment with Dr. Lydia or Dr. O.
Tooth pain can be excruciating and can interfere with every other aspect of your life. Sleeping, working, or concentrating on everyday tasks can seem impossible when dental problems are causing constant pain.
At O2 Dental Group, we don't want our dental patients to be in pain, and we can often provide you with same-day emergency appointment times to help you manage discomfort and ensure your oral health!
Knocked Out Tooth
A knocked out tooth can severely impact your ability to go through your day to day life, and can cause intense pain. At O2 Dental Group, we try to immediately take care of our patients who are experiencing this painful dental emergency.
Teeth may 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. Lydia or Dr. O as soon as possible!
Broken Dental Filling
As advanced as modern dentistry is, a broken dental filling can still happen. If your filling breaks, don't delay in scheduling an appointment with Lydia or Dr. O for emergency dental treatment. Many teeth can start out with a small break and would only need a filling, but the longer treatment is delayed, the break can become more severe and may require more extensive treatment.
Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of your entire mouth, including your healthy teeth and gums. However, if a dental abscess is treated immediately, this type of infection is easy to recover from and can be prevented from causing lasting damage to your mouth. After treatment, Dr. Lydia or Dr. O will likely prescribe an antibiotic to completely heal your dental infection and prevent further complications.
Are you experiencing tooth pain? Does it hurt to chew, when you drink cold liquids, or when air touches your tooth?
If you are suffering with persistent toothache, call O2 Dental Group of Wilmington to schedule an emergency dentist exam. During your appointment, our dental team 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.
The first few moments after an oral accident are vital in determining if your recovery will go smoothly. Dental trauma due to an accident is common and can happen due to motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries or physical altercations.
