Some people try to get through after-hours dental emergencies with an ice pack and over-the-counter pain medication. This isn’t a good idea, though. Seeing your dentist right away in an emergency can mean the difference between saving a tooth and losing it.Doctor Douglas Callow on dental emergencies Read Transcript
We always make an effort to see patients with dental emergencies on the very same day that they call. Dental pain is serious and not something to be delayed. Treatment is not something that should be delayed when a patient is in the dental pain, especially if there is infection present. We always go out of our way to make sure patients with emergencies are seen on the very same day.
At Douglas A. Callow, DDS, we can usually see you for a same-day appointment if you experience a dental emergency. Your after-hours calls are routed to Dr. Doug Callow, who monitors them for dental emergencies. He’ll advise you on what to do, including whether you need to come to our Plymouth, MI dentist office right away.
To keep the drama in a dental emergency to a minimum, call our Plymouth, MI office at 734-404-7336.
