If you call our office for an emergency, we give every effort to get you in that day. Sometimes it’s a situation where I need to just call you back and talk to you about what’s going on and give you a better idea of what you can expect moving forward and I don’t have to see you.
I can save you a trip to the office. Perhaps it’s better to come in the next day but if there is an emergency where it’s necessary for you to come in that day, you will absolutely be seen that day.
We will bring you in, we will give every single test we have available to figure out what is going on and what can we do to alleviate your pain. My patients, every one of my patients, gets my cell phone number. If you’ve had a procedure done, even if you’ve just shown up for one visit, everyone gets my cell phone number.
If they have any questions or concerns, I’m always available to talk. Patients call me on the weekends, late at night sometimes, I am not bothered by that. That is why I give out my cell phone. There shouldn’t be a time where you have a question and it can’t be answered by me.
During your appointment, Dr. Newingham can also help you find ways to prevent future dental emergencies, such as providing tips to prevent tooth decay or fitting you with a custom sports guard to protect your or your child’s teeth during athletic events.
Treating Your Dental Emergency At Any Time!
If you have an emergency after business hours, our phone will go directly to Dr. Newingham himself so that he can talk with you about your problem and schedule a time to see you. Don’t hesitate to call us after working hours or on weekends. We are always ready to help you in your time of need.
Providing Immediate Pain Relief For You And Your Family
Don’t hesitate to call if you are feeling pain in your tooth or mouth. Common causes of dental pain include:
- Tooth infections
- Large cavities
- Gum disease
We will talk with you about it over the phone and schedule an appointment to see you as soon as we can.
Helping You If You’ve Knocked Out Or Broken A Tooth
One of the most common emergencies we treat are knocked-out and broken teeth. If you or your child gets a tooth knocked out or broken while playing sports or during another accident, try to recover the tooth or pieces and then call us right away for an appointment.
If you have a knocked-out tooth:
- Find the tooth
- Rinse it off with warm water and try to place it back in its socket
- If you cannot do so, place it in a cup or container and cover it with salt water or milk
- Bring it to our office, and we will try to place it back in your mouth
If you have broken a tooth, bring in the pieces. In most cases, we can repair and protect broken teeth with same-day crowns and restore your smile.
