We’ll Get You Out of Pain & Give You the Solutions You Need

We see many different types of dental emergency situations at Blankenship Family Dentistry. If you’re in pain, we consider it an emergency. Below are some common problems that require immediate attention, along with critical steps to take before your appointment with us. With all of these emergencies, an over-the-counter pain reliever may help you feel more comfortable. Be sure to take as directed on the package.

  • Toothache – A simple toothache could be a sign of a bigger problem, such as an abscess (infection). Rinse your mouth with warm water, then use an ice pack to help with swelling and pain. Call us so we can get you proper care ASAP.
  • Broken or Chipped Tooth – Save any broken pieces, then call us immediately. You can use ice to help with pain and swelling.
  • Lost Filling – Fill the space with sugar-free gum or dental cement as a temporary measure. Call our office to get a new filling.
  • Loose or Dislodged Tooth – Call us immediately for an emergency appointment. Apply ice or a cold compress to alleviate pain and swelling.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth – Time is a critical factor in saving your tooth. Retrieve your tooth by the crown (don’t touch the roots), and place it in salt water, milk, or saliva to preserve it. Call us immediately for an appointment.
  • Loose or Broken Crown – If possible, try to reattach the crown to your tooth. After cleaning it, coat the inside surface with dental cement or toothpaste to keep it in place. Call us for an appointment so we can reattach it.

We’re here for all your dental emergencies in Stone Mountain! Call 770-766-8995 for fast help. If you have a non-emergency need, you can also request an appointment online.

Common Questions About Dental Emergencies

What can you do for my dental emergency?

When you come in for a dental emergency, we’ll first assess your condition to determine the next steps. Depending on your situation, we will recommend particular services to restore your smile. They may include a tooth-colored filling to repair dental decay, a dental crown to strengthen a damaged tooth, a root canal to repair an infected tooth, or a tooth extraction if we’re not able to save your tooth.

What if I have a dental emergency without insurance?

Even if you don’t have any insurance, we’ll still be happy to help you with your dental emergency. We don’t want anyone suffering needlessly through a dental crisis. We accept all major credit cards, plus we have arrangements with CareCredit, which offers financing options with attractive interest rates.
