Countless patients already know that Dr. Renee Kurtz DMD is one of Cheshire, CT’s premier general, family, restorative, and cosmetic dentists, but a few may not realize that we also provide emergency dental care to new and existing patients.
Everyone will perceive a dental emergency differently. That’s why we encourage you to call our office for advice on treatment that you may be able to begin at home while awaiting an appointment. Our dental care team will advise you on ways to lessen the pain from a toothache, what to do if you’ve lost a filling or dental veneer, how you should stop bleeding from a lost tooth, and more.
Some things that you may be experiencing include painful swelling in your gums, broken or chipped teeth, damage to dental work such as bridges, dentures, and veneers, or sharp or throbbing pain in a tooth. Also, if you’re visiting from another city or state and have experienced a dental emergency in Cheshire, CT, we welcome you to contact us for emergency diagnostics and treatment.
If you’re experiencing a dental emergency post-procedure – such as after a dental extraction or gum surgery – you should always call the dental team that performed the procedure first. If you’re unable to reach them for advice and treatment, we are available to step in and triage the condition until contact can be made.
We know that a dental emergency in Cheshire, CT can happen to anyone at any time, and Dr. Renee Kurtz DMD is always prepared to treat you. One way to avoid the need for emergency dental care in the future is to stay current on your preventive dentistry, such as annual exams and professional teeth cleaning appointments. If it’s been over a year since you’ve had either of these treatments, we invite you to call us now to stay ahead of the need for possible emergency dental care.
