Emergency Dentistry

We Handle All Emergency Dentistry at CarolinasDentist

There’s rarely any warning that dental trauma is about to happen, and it often occurs when you least expect it, leaving you in dire need of emergency dental care—and needing it as quickly as possible. At CarolinasDentist, we reserve space in our dental clinic schedule to accommodate same-day dentist appointments. Our goal is to treat you with efficiency and accuracy to provide you with a long-term smile solution, rather than a quick fix. Contact one of our skilled emergency dentists today.

Common Types of Dental Emergencies

Here’s a list of what we quickly address should your dental issue require emergency attention. These are some of the most common types of dental emergencies to look out for:

  • Broken dental restoration (crown, bridge, or denture)
  • Chipped or cracked tooth
  • Inflamed gums
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Lost filling
  • Persistent toothache

If you’re experiencing any of the above issues, please contact us right away so we can get you into our office for immediate treatment. We don’t want you to have to wait in pain or spend time trying to find a dentist who can’t get you in. We’ve got you covered!

Cost of Emergency Dental Care

The cost of treatment often prevents patients from getting the quality of dental care they need. We never want our patients to have to choose between their oral health and their budget, especially in an emergency. We offer a variety of payment options, including our Carolina Cares Program, CareCredit®, and Comprehensive Finance, to ensure a healthy smile is always within your reach.

Emergency Dentistry FAQs

A severe toothache, abnormal bleeding, or a broken tooth are a few of the most common dental emergencies. If you’re experiencing abnormal dental pain, you should seek advice from a dental professional as quickly as possible.

Now that’s a good question. Preparing for the unknown obviously has its challenges, but there are some preparations you can do. Indeed, dental emergencies are not always preventable, but you can better respond to them if you have the right tools. We recommend adding a few dental-specific items to your emergency kit, including floss, gauze, and a small container to transport a broken tooth. You should also have our contact information in an easily accessible spot so you can speak with a member of our team immediately.

In a perfect world, now. The sooner you seek help, the better. There is a small window of time that a knocked-out tooth may be salvaged, so it’s critical that you notify us of your dental emergency promptly. We do everything we can to get you into our office the very same day you call.

  • Great dental office. Easy to make appt and seen promptly and courteously. The dentist and tech greeted me in the lobby. Exam and cleaning was painless and well explained. It will be my permanent dentist in Wilmington.

  • Always an amazing customer service experience! The hygienists have exuberant personalities and do wonderfully with children. It’s a non-judgy experience for adults - all around pleasant with little to no waiting.

  • Excellent first experience here. Both Brooke and Dr. Bodah were laid back, and great conversationalists. When it came down to business, however, they were clearly proficient. No doubt they were honest as well, which isn't something you can say about every medical professional these days.
