What should I do if I have a toothache?
Any time your body expresses pain, it is a signal that something is not right and needs your attention. Your teeth are no different!
Tooth pain indicates that something is unhealthy and should be examined by a dentist. At Shoreland Dental, we invite new and existing patients to call us in the event of a painful dental emergency. By contacting us at the first sign of symptoms, we can provide you with faster treatment. In the case of dental emergencies, time is important! It can be the difference between saving and losing your tooth.
When you contact our office with a dental emergency, our knowledgeable team will ask you a few questions about your emergency so we can plan for your arrival. When you come in for your appointment, we will take an x-ray of the painful area to assist Dr. Azenheimer with an accurate diagnosis.
We do our best to treat dental emergencies on the same day. Our main goal will be to protect your tooth and eliminate pain. In some cases, we may schedule additional appointments in order to properly complete your treatment.
If you are not yet a patient in our office, we welcome you! You will receive the same great dental care our patients have come to expect from Shoreland Dental.
