While there are many different kinds of dental emergencies, there is one thing they always have in common: absolutely none of them are ever planned. An accident while playing sports or a surprise toothache can take even the most consistent brusher off guard! Thankfully, if you find yourself in need of immediate dental care, you only need to do one thing to get it: call Dr. D. Michael Miller.
Dr. D. Michael Miller and Dr. Dennis Miller both have experience treating a wide variety of dental emergencies, so no matter what your situation might be, you can always turn to us for help. We always try to get emergency patients into our office the same day that they call in so we can relieve their pain as soon as we can. With us, we will try to turn your emergency into a distant memory as quickly as possible.
Even if you are unsure whether or not your situation is an emergency, just give us a call, and we will be happy to offer advice and let you know what you should do next. However, if you believe that you have suffered a broken bone, or if you can’t stop bleeding after 10 minutes, please head straight to your nearest emergency room first. Contact us only after you have been cleared to leave.
For all dental emergencies, we recommend giving us a call as soon as you can. When it comes to knocked out teeth, in particular, what you do in between the time you call and when you actually make it to our office is very important to saving your tooth. Be sure to follow these steps:
