When it comes to finding an emergency dentist, it is important to look for one that can offer the comprehensive care your family needs. We invite you to call our office because we are number one in Fountain Inn for providing emergency care. Here is why:
#1. We can perform oral surgery.
One of the ways that we are unique is that we perform oral surgery on a regular basis to place dental implants. This is to the patient’s advantage because we can perform a wide range of procedures, even surgery if necessary along with emergency care.
#2. Our hours are convenient.
Most dentists are not emergency dentists. They treat patients during limited business hours and that is it. While that works well for preventative care and planned cosmetic procedures, that does not work when one wakes up with a sudden toothache, damage a tooth while playing softball or accidentally lose one. In these scenarios, patients need someone quickly. Fortunately, we are here to help.
#3. We can make you comfortable using sedation.
At Calcutt Family Dentistry, we use sedation to help our patients become calm and relaxed. Sedation can help patients have peace of mind after a traumatic event that caused the emergency in the first place. For example, if a tooth was knocked out in an accident, the patient can expect to feel discomfort and stress. Sedation has a calming effect so the patient can relax after the events that caused distress and then remain calm during the procedure.
#4. We are friendly and approachable.
Patients can count on us to treat them with a smile. We understand that visiting the dentist can be stressful for a lot of people. This is escalated after an accident or traumatic experience. This is why we take the time to get to know each patient, connect, and offer a warm and welcoming experience. Sometimes all it takes is a friendly face to know that the patient will be okay and that is what we offer patients every time. Combined with sedation, the patient can truly relax while here.
#5. Advice is readily available.
After a patient damages or loses a tooth, he or she is probably worried about what options are available for correcting it. This is understandable because of how important the teeth and smile are. When the patient comes in for an examination, we will physically examine the patient’s teeth, take X-rays and let the patient know what options are available for restoring teeth. While we are an emergency dentist, we still offer the full range of solutions that would be available to the patient during normal business hours.
You can depend on us to provide you with the emergency dental care that you need to fully recover from your accident. Regardless of why your tooth was damaged or lost, we can go to work solving the problem and do so while keeping you comfortable and relaxed.
