Do you take same-day emergency patients?
It can be pretty nerve-wracking to have a dental emergency and not know when you will be able to get in to see your dentist. However, you can put your mind at rest because, at Collins and Lowery DDS, we will do our very best to fit you into our schedule the same day.
It always seems to be the case that dental emergencies happen at the most inconvenient times. There are certain emergencies that can safely be put off for a day or two, and you are always welcome to contact us so we can assess your situation to see if immediate treatment is necessary.
But there are most definitely times when you need to be seen right away. If you are in severe pain or you’ve had a tooth knocked out, there is no doubt that you need to be seen quickly. Severe pain indicates that a very serious problem is developing; if your tooth gets knocked out, getting immediate treatment increases the odds of saving the tooth.
The best advice we can give you is to call one of our Pembroke dental offices immediately if you are unsure if your problem is an emergency. If so, we will get you in as quickly as possible; if not, we will put you on our schedule for the next available opening.
