Taking care of your teeth regularly and having scheduled checkups can minimize the chances of having an emergency. However, we know that dental emergencies will still happen, even when you’re being cautious. If you find yourself in a dental emergency, please contact our Charlotte, NC dental team as soon as possible. A dental emergency can be accompanied by severe pain in your teeth or gums, bleeding, swelling, or broken teeth. 

What Is a Dental Emergency?

If you are not sure if what you are experiencing would qualify as an emergency, it is recommended you call us anyway so we can help determine what is causing the problem and the proper course of action to alleviate and treat that problem. For more severe cases, we can help determine if you should visit an emergency room. For other emergencies, we may also determine that it can best be treated here at Harlow Dental. Dr. Harlow is an experienced practitioner and is prepared for emergencies you may be having. Unlike other providers, Dr. Harlow saves time every single day in case of same-day emergencies. You can trust that we do our best to get you on the schedule as quickly as possible. We know how terrible oral pain can feel, and therefore, we can advise you on how to deal with your emergency until you can get the pain relief you need. 

What Can Cause a Dental Emergency?

The cause of an emergency can vary greatly from patient to patient, but we understand the value of treating the problem quickly. Even if it is determined that you need a root canal treatment or tooth extraction, we still do our best to fit you in the same day. If, however, Dr. Harlow is unable to complete the dental procedure on the same day, he may still provide pain relievers or antibiotics to ease your pain until the procedure can be completed. The best way to determine your specific course of treatment is always to call Harlow Dental at any time.
