How soon can you see me in an emergency?
We understand that when you need relief from tooth pain, you need it fast. You can count on the team at Alpharetta Creek Restorative Dentistry to get you in to see us as soon as possible. Depending on the nature of your emergency, we can often fit you in on the day that you contact us.
Some dental emergencies like a cracked or avulsed (knocked out) tooth need to be addressed immediately so we can try to save the tooth. A severe toothache is another type of emergency that needs immediate attention. You need relief quickly, but this kind of pain is also a signal that you have a significant dental problem.
While a lost crown or filling may be uncomfortable, we may be able to wait until our next available appointment. However, if pain is involved, our priority is to make you comfortable until we can restore the tooth.
Whatever emergency you're facing, please don't hesitate to call us. We would rather you call right away than wait around deciding whether or not you have a true dental emergency. We will be happy to listen to your concerns, arrange an emergency appointment if necessary, and provide instructions for you to take care of yourself until we can see you.
