If you have a dental emergency in Paducah, KY, we can help.

Dental emergencies can be excruciating, especially toothaches. They can also disrupt your plans and rob you of sleep.

What Is a Dental Emergency?

When it comes to dental emergencies, there are far too many scenarios to consider. However, if you have tooth, jaw, or gum pain, we consider it a dental emergency.

Other emergencies include:

  • Broken tooth or restoration
  • Trauma to the tooth or jaw
  • Object stuck in soft tissue

If ever you’re unsure whether your situation is an emergency, give us a call. Our skilled team can assess how you’re feeling and your symptoms to make the best determination.

Rest assured, we will not leave you in pain!

What Our Emergency Dentist in Paducah Does During Your Emergency Dental Visit

Your dentist first assesses your situation, makes a diagnosis as soon as possible, and takes steps to ease your pain and restore your oral health.

If your restoration is broken, we take steps to repair or replace it as soon as possible. If you have a root infection, we provide a gentle root canal treatment for you.

If your tooth has been knocked out, keep it in a glass of milk until your emergency dental visit. Your dentist may be able to reset it and save your smile. If the tooth cannot be saved, we can discuss tooth replacement following your emergency treatment.

Your dentist will discuss all treatment options with you after diagnosing your emergency—the cause or culprit. It may be that you need a dental crown to support a broken tooth, for example.
