Emergency Dentistry in Fayetteville, AR

Let’s say you bite down on a popcorn kernel, and a crown implant painfully comes loose. Or maybe you bite down too hard on your food and chip a tooth. These are instances that would qualify as emergency dentistry; something that needs quick or immediate attention.

Our Treatment Philosophy

What Is Emergency Dentistry

About Emergency Dentistry

Persistent Pain

If you have an issue that is causing you persistent pain, particularly to the point where you can’t perform daily tasks, this is an instance of emergency dentistry.

Cosmetic Abnormalities

Chipping a large portion of a visible tooth, or losing a tooth altogether, might qualify for an emergency appointment, especially if it is causing severe pain.

Cavities

Cavities worsen if left untreated. If you have a cavity or notice something that looks like a cavity, we recommend setting up an appointment as soon as possible.

Root Canals

A root canal is meant to prevent an infection from spreading throughout your gums. They must be done quickly to prevent the spread as quickly as possible.

Emergency Care

For Quick Relief

Emergency dentistry does not mean that you are in any sort of immediate danger, but some issues need attention more quickly than others. If you have a chipped tooth, gum infection or growing cavity, we want to get you in to see us as soon as possible so that we can alleviate the pain and prevent any more damage to your teeth.

More and more studies show that your oral health is directly linked to your overall health. Getting proper dental care needs to be as important a part of your healthcare routine as exercise, eating right, and having a yearly medical exam. But that doesn’t make dental care any easier—especially if you don’t have dental insurance.
