As a top-tier multi-specialty dentist, Dr. Grimm has the experience and skill needed to treat dental emergencies when they arise. Plus, our dentistry’s gentle and caring team provides the same compassionate care during dental emergencies as they do when providing general, cosmetic, and preventive dentistry.
Everyone perceives an emergency differently. If you believe that you’re experiencing a dental emergency, please call our emergency dental clinic to receive triage information from Dr. Grimm before coming into our office. For example, if you’ve had a tooth knocked out, lost a filling, or if a dental veneer has broken away from the tooth surface, you’ll receive information on the next steps to ensure a successful procedure when you’re seen in our office. Conversely, bleeding gums when you brush and floss do not require emergency dental care from our dentist, but they signal the need for an exam during our next available appointment.
If you’re experiencing a toothache or swollen gums, those too can often wait until our next available appointment. Still, when you call our office, you can receive information about over-the-counter products that can help alleviate any discomfort until Dr. Grimm can see you.
Even if you’re not currently a patient of My Family Dental Taylor, we are here for you. When you call us, we will provide treatment advice, instructions on coming into our office or refer you to the nearest urgent care facility if our emergency dentist cannot assist in one-on-one treatment for your emergency. And remember, one of the best things you can do to reduce the risk of having a dental emergency is to stay on top of your preventive dental care. When you regularly visit our dentist, our team will be able to detect any early warning signs signaling a future emergency, such as loose teeth and fillings or irritated and swollen gums.
