Dental emergencies always seem to come when you least expect them and typically when it is the most inconvenient time possible. A broken filling or a toothache is the last thing you need when you’re on your way to work or school. If you find yourself in need of an emergency dentist, Dr. Aiello is here to help!
If you are experiencing an emergency situation, it is always best to contact your Clinton Township dentist first. If you head to a hospital emergency room, they are not likely to be equipped to handle a dental emergency, and they will send you to your dentist. Contacting Dr. Aiello first will save you time, stress, and money in the long run as he can provide same-day treatment for emergencies in most cases.
We encourage you to call our office as soon as you are experiencing a smile emergency. Our team will accommodate you as quickly as possible to get you out of pain, and we do our very best to schedule same-day appointments for all new patients with emergencies. Please don’t hesitate to call us even if you’ve never been to our office before.
How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies
When you know what to do during a dental emergency, it can often alleviate some of the stress associated with the situation.
Some of the emergencies that we often treat include:
- Broken Fillings, Crowns, and Dentures – If you have a filling or appliance that is damaged or lost, you will need to restore or repair it to protect your oral health.
- Toothaches and Pain – Severe or constant dental pain often indicates an infected tooth. The pain needs to be treated as soon as possible to keep the infection from getting worse, spreading, and resulting in tooth loss.
- Broken, Chipped Teeth – It is important to repair a broken tooth because it can irritate your other teeth or soft tissues.
- A Knocked-Out Tooth – Contact Dr. Aiello immediately if you have a tooth that’s been dislodged. The faster he can treat it, the better chance he has of saving the tooth.
We Offer Same Day Appointments
We are here to take care of all your urgent and routine dental needs. We offer both morning and evening appointments to accommodate our emergency patients.
If you are an existing patient calling after hours, you can leave a message, and it will be delivered directly to Dr. Aiello. He will personally return your call as soon as possible.
If you are experiencing dental pain or an emergency, don’t hesitate to call Dr. Aiello right away. We’ll get you back on the path to wellness as soon as possible.
