Dental emergencies are inconvenient, painful, and uncomfortable. Whether you experience a dental emergency like a crown or filling that has fallen out, or if your child suffered from a dental injury during a contact sport or a slip and fall, it’s important to get help quickly to ensure the best results.
At Luck Family Dental in Fort Mill, we specialize in emergency dentistry. Dr. Luck has years of experience treating patients of all ages. Our team can restore your mouth after an injury or severe damage, and we’ll get you back to your normal, day-to-day life.
We define a dental emergency as any problem that is causing you serious pain or discomfort, that you cannot treat at home.
That means that dental injuries, like knocked out or damaged teeth, count as dental emergencies. Other emergencies include things like infected teeth that are causing a toothache, advanced cases of gum disease, or damaged dental work like fillings, bridges, and crowns.
If you’re not sure if you have an emergency, it’s best to schedule an appointment with Dr. Leah Luck anyway, to ensure that your mouth is healthy and free of any major issues.
Some dental emergencies, like knocked out teeth, require immediate treatment for the best results. As a general rule, it’s always best to get treatment as soon as you can for all dental emergencies in order to reduce your pain and discomfort, and ensure your tooth can be saved. Try not to wait more than 12 hours to see a dentist if you are in pain.
Dr. Luck always keeps an appointment or two open for walk-ins, and for patients who call for same-day visits over the phone. This ensures that you can always get treatment for a dental emergency when it’s convenient for you.
We use the latest dental technology and non-invasive techniques for treatment, and we take an informative, patient-focused approach to dentistry. We have sedation options available, and our caring and kind staff will help you stay comfortable, even during a dental emergency.
When you come in with a dental emergency, we’ll help you understand all of your options for treatment, and select the option that’s best for your needs, your budget, and your particular situation.
