What do I do during a dental emergency?

When a dental problem develops unexpectedly, it is important that patients call Drs. Mark Duncan and Mandy Holley of Aesthetic Dentistry of Georgetown immediately to schedule an appointment. In most situations, our team can accommodate a same-day appointment when dental emergencies arise. Calling the dentist and getting in to the office as soon as possible is vital for getting a problem addressed before it becomes a more severe issue that cannot be fixed.

What about a toothache?

Toothaches may occur for a number of different reasons. There might be a very large cavity that has reached the dental pulp and aggravated the nerves, causing significant pain. It might also be due to a abscess or an infection that has impacted the inner canals of the tooth. Situations such as this will require an evaluation with x-rays to get a proper diagnosis and then discuss possible treatment. Treatment may include cavity fillings or root canal therapy.
