All about

Dental Emergencies

We know that a serious toothache or dental emergency has the potential to disrupt your busy schedule. We would love to help you avoid that! You may be dealing with an accident, a broken tooth, a broken crown, an extreme toothache, an abscessed tooth, swollen gums, a broken veneer, or some other dental emergency. Call us today and our staff will make it a priority to get you in the office and get treatment. 

Some causes of toothache include:

  • Accidents
  • Tooth Decay
  • Filling
  • Abscess
  • Periodontal disease
  • Broken crown, veneer, or tooth

1A saltwater rinse is an effective, natural disinfectant that can help loosen food particles stuck between your teeth, reduce inflammation and heal wounds. 

2A properly diluted hydrogen peroxide rinse used as a mouthwash can kill bacteria, relieve pain, and reduce inflammation. Never swallow hydrogen peroxide.  

3Toothaches can be relieved with a cold compress. Hold a bag of ice to the affected area for 20 minutes at a time and repeat every few hours. 

4Over-the-counter pain relievers can help reduce pain until you come into the office and get treated. 

"Dr. Athanasius is kind, and reasonable.  He also does a great job with numbing shots! They didn't hurt and neither did the procedure! I have severe anxiety issues with the dentist, but he really helped alleviate them!"

“I feel lucky to have been referred over to Genuine Family Dentistry and Dr. Paul. I had an emergency and they were on top of getting me in, taking care of me, lining up appointments, and dealing with my high anxiety at the dentist.

The staff was incredible, being caring, patient, understanding, and reassuring. Everyone there from Dr. Paul, to his entire staff, was so sweet to me even though I’m a nervous wreck in the chair. I cannot thank you all enough for taking such great care of me and I highly recommend Genuine Family Dentistry to anyone who is hesitant and nervous about where to go.”
