Dental emergencies can happen anytime. From a sensitive tooth that has been ignored to traumatic accidents, our office excels handling the most complicated of dental emergencies. When decay or a cavity has gotten large enough inside of a tooth, the tooth may become sensitive to hot and cold or even begin to ache. This aching may wakeup the patient from sleep or last several hours in the evenings. A toothache is not something to be ignored. While the tooth aches, bacteria are removing more tooth structure and potentially entering the head and neck area. Many patients have swelling, fever and notice a general lethargy during this time. It is imperative that dental and antibiotic treatment may begin at this time before the infection becomes a medical emergency requiring intravenous antibiotics and hospitalization.
Another common dental emergency is dental trauma. Commonly among children or impaired adults, slips and falls happen in an instant. The most important things to remember during this time is to evaluate the level of trauma. If a permanent tooth has been lost, place in a cup of the patients saliva or milk and get to our office immediately. If a permanent tooth has been chipped, retain the piece and avoid rapid changes in temperature until the tooth can be restored. If a child’s primary tooth has been lost, never put it back into the socket to avoid damage to the permanent tooth underlying. If a child’s primary tooth has been chipped, calm the child and pursue dental treatment with our clinic as soon as possible. We make it a point to see our patients within hours of dental emergencies. During dental emergencies it is imperative to stay calm and reach out to the office that you know will take care of you during your time of need, ThoroughDent Smiles. Only at ThoroughDent Smiles do you find a welcoming team of professionals trained to help your dental emergency.
Dr. Neda is my permanent Dentist from day one when she just started her practice as a student at Dental college at the UK. Even so as a beginner in this field she showed that she will be an incredible Dentist. Her passions and dedication to this profession lead her to become a great Dentist who will do anything to satisfy you with the result. Her work always meets my expectations and do to my current work, I willing fly back to keep my appointment with her. Can't wait to see her again in her new office. I highly recommend this incredible lady as your dentist because you will never regret and disappointed with her work!
These dentists are absolutely wonderful. I’ve know both for many year and trust their work to be the highest standard of care. I can recall Dr. Neda telling me about a tooth that would break just before it did because if the way she evaluated fractures. Dr. Smith has treated me as well with a root canal and was an excellent clinician. Both doctors are incredible with outstanding bedside manner.
Nothing but the best. This team goes above and beyond to provide nothing but outstanding dental care in a comfortable environment at a convenient location. Looking forward to finishing my treatment plan with Dr. Neda in this new location. Lucky for Georgetown to have such a great dentist.
Dr. Neda has treated me for a toothache before and was very gentle and thorough. I really appreciate it how much time she took to explain what was going on. Looking forward to the grand opening!
I have always been terrified of dentist appointments because of pain and needles. However, Dr. Neda changed all of that. She is very understanding, professional and caring. She always lets me know what is going to be done and how. As well as being very gentle and helping to keep my mind off the needle while getting sedated. Highly recommend to everyone!
