Having a chipped tooth or broken tooth can be embarrassing. Many patients often report feeling a lack of confidence and a desire to “hide their smile”. At Walding & Associates, we don’t want patients to feel that way for any longer than absolutely necessary. That’s why we often extend same-day appointments and emergency dental services to those with broken or chipped teeth.
Not only can a severely broken or chipped tooth be embarrassing, it can also be detrimental to your overall oral health. By exposing more delicate enamel and, at times, the pulp of the tooth, this type of damage or injury can result in quicker than average tooth decay. If left untreated for longer periods of time, this could lead to permanent damage to the tooth and cause the need for dental fillings, crowns, extractions, root canals and more.
That’s why it is imperative that you visit your Walding & Associates dental clinic as quickly as possible. We will work hard to ensure that you are seen as soon as possible, and we will address any tooth pain or cosmetic concerns at your initial appointment. You don’t have to be a current patient to receive emergency dental treatment in our centrally located dental office. Simply reach out to our friendly and courteous staff or walk-in our front doors, and we will do everything we can to assist you.
Common treatments for a broken tooth or chipped tooth include:
Depending on the degree of the break or chip, follow-up appointments may be necessary to complete your treatment. However, we should be able to provide a temporary fix, such as placing a temporary crown, during your initial visit in most cases.
If you live in Winter Haven, Auburndale, Crystal Lake, Lake Wales, Lakeland Highlands or the surrounding areas and have a broken tooth or a badly chipped tooth, contact Walding & Associates today to inquire about same-day scheduling. We look forward to serving you!
