Regardless of where or when a dental emergency occurs, you want to know your dentist can provide you with prompt, gentle attention. Dr. Brent Nail and the Athens Oconee Dentistry team assist new and existing patients, even those who are not from our local area, with urgent dental care as quickly as possible. If you call us during business hours, we will arrange to fit you in on the same day. We can also be reached after hours as needed through our answering service so that you may obtain reliable advice on how to manage your dental need until you can be seen in the comfort of our office. In some cases, a visit to the emergency room may be necessary. Many patients, however, can reduce discomfort at home and obtain treatment from us the following day.
We want you to feel comforted by our personal level of care. Know that we understand and we empathize with the stress that comes with urgent dental problems. As soon as we can perform a comprehensive assessment of your condition, you can feel confident that your tooth will be restored and pain eliminated through the most appropriate dental procedure. Understandably, pain reduction is one of the main priorities of emergency dental care in our Oconee office. Once you are comfortable, we will discuss the long-term solutions that can keep you from experiencing future issues.
A dental emergency may involve a dislodged tooth, a knocked-out tooth, food that is uncomfortably lodged between teeth or even soft tissue injuries. More often than not, the reason for urgent dental care is a toothache.
We get it. A great many people really don't like seeing the dentist! To avoid the "pain" of dental care, visits to the dentist are put off repeatedly. Sensitivity may develop either to hot or cold temperatures, to sugar, or just as a general sensation. This may be written off as nothing serious. Sensitivity is, however, a precursor to many of the urgent dental appointments made in our country!
Dr. Nail is a compassionate dentist who does not want his patients to suffer the perceived turmoil of dental care. Whether you visit us for urgent attention for dental pain or you want to maintain your teeth and gums in a healthy state, we can make your visits more comfortable with sedation.
Don't wait to get the care you need to feel comfortable. Call Athens Oconee Dentistry today.
