Dr. Brett Cotham understands that injuries happen sometimes, which is why he provides emergency care at his practice in Rogers, AR. A few typical dental injuries include broken, chipped, and knocked out teeth. Incidents could be caused by chewing food that is too hard for your teeth to manage, an accident when playing sports, a bad spill, or a blunt-force trauma. You might or might not feel discomfort, but it is important to get your mouth assessed following an accident to look for any damage. At All About Smiles, we'll consistently make your dental crisis a priority by offering fast care along with steps to protect against future issues.
After an accident, you may require urgent care if a restoration or tooth falls out, if you have a cracked tooth, or if you're experiencing pain. In some instances, you might be uncertain how fast you require treatment (as an example, a loose restoration or tooth, an injury that does not result in bleeding or pain, or a chip in a tooth). Whenever you have a dental trauma that impacts your gums, teeth, or jaw, it is best to seek help from our talented team of professionals. At All About Smiles, will be able to help you manage your pain in urgent situations, as well as help you restore your tooth or dental restoration. Even seemingly small injuries may result in larger issues if not handled as soon as possible, therefore, it's better to contact our office right away.
What To Expect
Every case is unique, so Dr. Cotham will thoroughly evaluate your mouth prior to making a diagnosis during your consultation. X-rays might be required to look for additional concerns. After we understand the degree of your problem, Dr. Cotham will speak with you about your options and develop a treatment program. You might require one or a number of visits to restore your teeth back to perfect health.
Depending on the issue, All About Smiles can offer you guidance about how to recover following your procedure. Dr. Cotham can give you a prescription for pain medication or antibiotics, which needs to be used as directed. Our team may also tell you to schedule an appointment for a different treatment or a follow-up examination. You might also ask about methods to prevent potential accidents, including a custom-made mouth guard that should be worn during contact sports. Patients need to continue to stick to a regular home oral hygiene routine with flossing and brushing to help keep gums and teeth healthy and strong. During your yearly dental examination at All About Smiles, we will continue to observe your recovery progress.
If you are using dental insurance, we will do our best to contact your insurer to ascertain your coverage after we have established your treatment program. For those not using insurance, All About Smiles takes several payment methods and we can help you get low-interest financing to help make your care easier to afford. Do not delay handling a dental crisis due to concerns over price since waiting might lead to more serious issues later on.
