Do you provide emergency services?
Yes, we do.
Whether you have a lost crown or an excruciating toothache, it is our goal at the Dental Group at Carpenter’s Crossing to treat the issue as soon as possible. This is why we make time for emergency services in our Lewes, DE dental office!
Dental emergencies may include:
- Tooth loss—can often be saved with prompt action
- Tooth trauma
- Broken tooth
- Lost crown
- Excruciating pain
Sometimes, if you have minor discomfort following a filling, for example, or notice a slight crack in your tooth that is not painful, you can call our dental office and schedule an appointment within a day or two.
However, if you are in doubt, always contact our dental office. Additionally, if you’ve sustained a traumatic injury, we recommend going to your local emergency room where one of our dentists can be contacted on your behalf.
When playing sports, we recommend wearing a mouth guard to protect your teeth and gums from injury.
To help prevent infection-based emergencies make sure to see your dentist regularly and don’t skip your twice-yearly dental cleanings.
Brushing and flossing twice per day at home, is also a great way to help prevent these types of emergencies.
