Find an emergency dentist in your community for immediate dental care
Dr. Philip Hahn and his team are pleased to provide a range of urgent dental services for patients who need them because there are always situations that can arise when we least expect them. Emergency dentistry helps patients who need same-day care from a dental professional in Charlotte, North Carolina. Below are a few of the common conditions that might cause patients to call Family Dental Choice for immediate care:
- Knocked-out tooth. A knocked-out tooth can happen in an instant and often leads to a significant amount of pain. The most important thing you can do if you lose a tooth is to try to locate it. If you can find the tooth, make sure that you avoid touching the roots or cleaning around the site where the tooth was dislodged. The next step is to rinse your mouth with water and place a cold compress on your cheek near the affected area. Dr. Hahn will help you determine what treatment options are available for restoring your lost tooth.
- Chipped/cracked tooth or dental restoration. If you chip or crack a natural tooth, you may only be able to see the actual damage later. Please schedule an appointment with our team at Family Dental Choice as soon as possible after your injury occurs. A chipped or cracked tooth will often cause pain and lead to further complications if left untreated. Dr. Hahn will examine the affected area and recommend treatment options if necessary.
- Toothache. Toothaches are one of the most common reasons that people call the dentist in an urgent situation. If your dental pain persists even after using over-the-counter medications, you need to seek immediate attention from our team before the problem becomes worse. Our team will perform a thorough exam and work with you to determine what treatments might be viable for your unique situation.
