WHAT COUNTS AS A DENTAL EMERGENCY?

- Accidents such as car wrecks or sports injuries which cause the teeth to be dislodged from their normal alignment.
- Swelling in the cheeks or under the jaw that stems from a toothache.
For emergencies, please call us and we will help you immediately.
WHAT COUNTS AS An urgent DENTAL problem?
Urgent dental problems require attention at the first available appointment during normal business hours.
- Broken or racked teeth
- Displaced fillings, crowns, or other dental work
For urgent dental problems, please call us and we will work you into Dr. Cox's treatment schedule as quickly as possible.
WHY DO I NEED TO GET IMMEDIATE CARE FOR MY DENTAL EMERGENCY?
First, getting immediate care helps prevent complications and ensures we can save your tooth. All dental emergencies are urgent, and the sooner we treat you, the better. Some emergencies, like a tooth that has been knocked out, must be addressed within 1-2 hours to save your tooth.
In addition, getting immediate care helps relieve your pain and discomfort. An oral injury or dental emergency like a toothache can cause excruciating pain that interferes with your day-to-day life. Getting care from Dr. Cox will ensure that you can get back to your daily routine without worrying about your oral health. You’ll get relief from your dental emergency, as well as peace of mind!
Need an appointment ASAP?
TFD takes pride that we routinely offer same day service for urgent dental care and dental emergencies. However, in support of the fight against Covid19, dentists are being called to limit appointments in order to preserve the supply of facemasks and other protective equipment desperately needed by our hospitals during this crisis. In cooperation with the ADA, the Governor of Arkansas, and the State Dental Board, TFD will continue to be open and provide urgent and emergency treatment for the relief of pain and infection as supplies remain available.
