Same-Day Dental Q & A
What is same-day dental care?
HG Doctors knows that emergencies happen, and that life is busy. That’s why the practice offers same-day dental care. Same-day dental care provides you with affordable access to dental services when you need them.
At a same-day dental appointment, your HG Doctors team can address a myriad of dental issues, including but not limited to:
- One or more knocked-out teeth
- Cracked tooth
- Chipped tooth
- A lost filling or crown
- Tooth broken at the gum line
- Foreign object lodged between your teeth or in your gum tissue
- Oral infection
In addition, the practice sees any patient with any type of severe dental pain.
How can I save a knocked-out tooth with same-day dental care?
If you act quickly and carefully, it’s possible to save a knocked-out tooth. First, pick up your tooth by the chewing surface and gently rinse it off. Don’t touch the tooth roots, because doing so can disrupt the cells on the roots and prevent reimplantation.
Once you’ve rinsed off your tooth, you want to keep it moist until you reach the practice for same-day dental care. To do so, you can:
- Place the tooth back in its socket and hold it in place by biting down on a clean cloth or sterile gauze
- Place the tooth back in its socket and hold it in place with your finger
- Hold the tooth between your gums and cheek
- Place the tooth in a small container of regular cow’s milk
If none of these options work, you can also place the tooth in a sealed container of water with a pinch of salt.
Once you’ve collected, cleaned, and secured your tooth, get to HG Doctors within one hour for chances at the best results.
Why is same-day dental better than the emergency room?
If you need urgent care, you might consider going to the emergency room. However, emergency rooms tend to be very expensive, and it may take hours for a physician to see you.
In contrast, same-day dental care allows you access to low cost, high quality dental care in under an hour.
If you’ve injured your tooth or you think you need dental care today, don’t languish in line at the emergency room. Instead, contact HG Doctors online or over the phone right now to schedule a same-day dental appointment.
