Same-Day Emergency Dentistry in Grand Rapids, MI
Are you or a loved one experiencing dental pain or discomfort? At Always A Smile, the office of Ronald M. Olszewski DDS, we offer treatment for a wide variety of issues. Our goal is to provide treatment as soon as possible to reduce the amount of discomfort you may be experiencing. Typically, we can see you on the same day for dental emergencies, if you call first thing in the morning for an appointment.
Many people may put off visiting a dentist, even in emergency situations, as they fear that the procedures they’ll have to undergo will be extremely painful. However, this is rarely the case, as most emergency dental procedures are significantly less painful than the discomfort which drove you to seek our services in the first place. We’ll get you sorted out, pain-free, and on your way in as little time as possible!
We offer dental care for the following emergencies:
1. Severe toothaches
While over-the-counter pain meds can help alleviate the pain, persistent, severe toothaches can be a sign of something more serious. This is why you should see a professional as soon as possible to get this dental emergency treated properly.
2. Chipped or Cracked Tooth
If you happen to chip or crack a tooth, your best option is to book an emergency dentistry appointment immediately to get it repaired and keep it from worsening. Chipped teeth are fairly easy to repair by reattaching the broken piece of enamel or by fitting a custom-made dental crown that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
3. Oral Infections
Mouth infections can be painful and dangerous if not treated properly. Stop it from getting worse by contacting your emergency dentist who will be able to drain the abscess and clean the area, prescribe the necessary antibiotics, and save your tooth when possible.
4. Denture Repairs
Broken or cracked dentures can sometimes be repaired if the damage is minimal and the process is carried out by a professional. Get in touch with a trusted professional for emergency dentistry, who can better assess if repair is possible as well as provide a temporary solution if they need to be replaced.
5. Lost Tooth
Losing a tooth as an adult is never a pleasant experience! If you do happen to lose a permanent tooth due to injury, be sure to contact your emergency dentist immediately to fit a replacement as soon as possible.
6. TMJ Pain
Temporomandibular Joint syndrome can lead to severe pain or tenderness in the jaw, as well as around the ear and face too, especially when chewing. If left untreated, this can become a persistent condition that will continue to afflict you throughout your life. Always seek medical attention before resorting to over-the-counter meds for pain relief.
These types of situations are easier to treat and handle than you might think. We have 25 years of experience practicing dentistry and have seen virtually every type of dental emergency. We would be happy to offer you a free consultation to discuss treatment.
