All in all, our specialty services are designed to comfort patients, educate them, and transform their oral health for the better. Contact our Asheville, NC practice today if you’d like to learn more, or if you’re ready to schedule a visit.
Have you knocked out one or more of your natural teeth? Is a family member experiencing severe dental pain that has no known cause? These situations can result in panic, but Dr. White and the rest of our staff strongly encourages you to remain as calm as possible. Pick up your phone and contact our Asheville office right away for the emergency care and guidance you need most during these stressful times. We do everything in our power to see situations of this nature as soon as we possibly can.
Many people are actually unsure what constitutes a dental emergency. Dr. White considers the following situations urgent:
- Fully dislodged tooth
- Partially dislodged tooth
- Broken/fractured tooth
- Damaged/lost crown or filling
- Object stuck between the teeth
- Severe toothache
- Gum tissue injury
- Jaw injury
- Oral bleeding
While dental emergencies can never be fully avoided, there are steps that patients and their families can take to reduce their overall risk. Be sure to schedule routine examinations and cleanings with our team every six months, or twice each year; this allows us to identify the potential dental emergencies of tomorrow when they’re still minor and easily treatable. Additionally, exercise caution when eating overly tough or sticky foods, avoid chewing ice, and always wear a custom oral appliance when you suffer from bruxism/TMJ disorder or regularly participate in sports.
