Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies, like any emergency, are rarely considerate. They almost always happen during a holiday when most places are closed, after hours, on your vacation, or during a busy moment in your life. They can be stressful and disorienting, which is why it’s important to have a dental family you can trust. 

At Smiles at Murphy, we know exactly how terrible any dental emergency can be. Our team always places your comfort first throughout your treatment with us. We welcome new walk-in patients as well as leaving time available in our schedule to accommodate our long-standing patients.

Your Healing Begins With Us

Dental emergency treatment starts with calling Dr. Anshu Jain a call to assess the severity of your situation. 

During your call, our front desk staff will listen to your symptoms and can determine if we need to see you right away or if you can see us the next day. We focus on your pain and relieving it as soon as possible before we begin the healing process.

Common Dental Emergencies

Dr. Jain treats all manner of tooth emergencies in Murphy, no matter how unusual or complex. Common emergencies we treat include: 

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Toothaches
  • Loose dental restorations
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Bleeding and tenderness

Don’t see your current situation on the list? Give us a call either way, because we can likely address it. Dr. Scott Williams is our trusted oral surgeon if we require surgical procedures like dental extractions or root canal therapy. 

Emergency Services That We Offer

We invest in our patients by using the latest dental technology, tools, and education for their dental procedures. If you have a dental emergency, we may use the following services to keep your smile strong and healthy:

  • Dental x-rays
  • Root canal therapy

We use dental x-rays to create precise images of your teeth and gums, so Dr. Jain can see what's going on beneath the surface. 

An Ounce of Prevention Is Worth a Pound of Cure

It’s true that any emergency is hard to predict. However, most dental emergencies are a result of poor oral hygiene and lack of consistent dental care. 

Skipping routine dental visits and exams can seem tempting, especially when you’re busy and your teeth look healthy and feel normal. The issue with this thought process is that many oral health problems don’t show any symptoms. By coming to Smiles at Murphy every six months, we can easily identify oral health issues before they develop into painful, costly scenarios.

The best prevention includes brushing and flossing your teeth, and seeing us, of course!
