Emergency Dentist Appointments In Coeur d’Alene
Tooth pain can be excruciating and can interfere with every other aspect of your life. Sleeping, working, or concentrating on everyday tasks can seem to be impossible when dental problems are causing constant pain. At Lakeview Dental Clinic, we can often provide you with same-day or next-day appointment times to help you manage pain and protect your oral health.
Dr. Matteson is a board-certified prosthodontist, the experts in treatment planning. Prosthodontics is a dental specialty focusing on restoring missing tooth and jaw structures and correcting dental and facial problems. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Matteson can treat even complex dental emergencies and get your smile back on track.
Knocked Out Tooth
A knocked out tooth is a common dental problem. At Lakeview Dental Clinic, we strive to immediately take care of our patients who are experiencing this painful dental emergency.
Teeth can be incredibly strong, but they can still chip, break or crack (fracture). Remember, treating a broken tooth at home is not an option; you need to see Dr. Matteson as soon as possible!
Broken Dental Filling
As advanced as modern dentistry is, broken fillings can still happen. The most important thing to remember is not to delay seeing Dr. Matteson to get treatment for a broken filling. Many teeth can start out with a small break and would only need a filling, but the longer treatment is delayed, the bigger the problem becomes.
Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors. Fortunately, we can help! If treated immediately, these infections are easy to recover from and can be prevented from causing lasting damage to your mouth. After treatment, Dr. Matteson will likely prescribe an antibiotic to treat the dental infection and prevent complications.
Are you experiencing tooth pain? Does it hurt to chew or when air touches your tooth? The first step to take if you are suffering with persistent toothache (for longer than a day or two) is to call Dr. Matteson to schedule an exam. During your appointment, Dr. Matteson will likely x-ray your tooth to help determine if a cavity, crack, abscess or other problem is causing your pain before discussing treatment options with you.
The first few moments after an oral accident are vital in determining if your recovery will go smoothly. Dental trauma due to an accident is common and can happen due to motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries or physical altercations. If you have experienced an oral accident resulting in a tooth being knocked loose, a filling being damaged or a tooth being fractured, call Dr. Matteson immediately to schedule an emergency appointment.
