Emergency Dentist in Myrtle Beach
Dental emergencies can take you by surprise, oftentimes with sudden pain. If this happens to you, call us at Myrtle Beach Office Phone Number 843-448-5757 as soon as possible! We’ll make every attempt to see you that same day.
Ever find yourself wondering, “Is there an emergency dentist near me?” There is, call Myrtle Beach Office Phone Number 843-448-5757 for same day and complete dental treatment from Comfort Dental in Myrtle Beach SC. We’re across from the Grand Strand. Your emergency dentist visit will usually consist of a problem-focused examination, an x-ray of the affected area and a review of the treatment options available to you, as related to your dental emergency.
In most cases, pain relief is provided, and emergency treatments completed, the same day as your appointment. However, a complex medical history, severe infection, or more complete treatment plan may require an evaluation, medications and temporary measures, with a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Types of Dental Emergencies
Pain can result from an abscessed tooth, a broken tooth, gum infection, or unbalanced bite. All of these problems are usually treatable to achieve pain relief the same day, although further treatment may be required to permanently treat and prevent recurrence of the problem.
Swelling may be present either with or without pain. In either case, it should be taken seriously, as it is usually a sign of infection in the area. Most infections can be brought under control with treatment and medications. If swelling begins to affect your ability to swallow or breathe, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
Over the years, we’ve successfully treated patients for injuries suffered from just about anything: vehicle collisions, bar fights, sporting events, jellyfish stings, golf balls, hot pizza – you name it. No matter the cause of your dental injury, it’s a sure bet that we’ve seen like injuries before. Fear not, we’ll treat your dental trauma, or stabilize the situation and get you to the specialist you need.
Dental emergencies aren’t always painful! You may break or crack a tooth, or lose a crown, veneer or denture and have an important business or social meeting coming up. Not that long ago, one of our younger patients lost a baby tooth just hours before her dance recital. We’ve also treated frantic brides-to-be right before the wedding ceremony. In short, if it’s an emergency to you, it’s an emergency to us!
