Scheduling A Dental Visit On Short Notice

Hopefully, you have a date already set for your next routine dental checkup. If something affects your smile between now and your next scheduled visit, you can find yourself in need of care on short notice. At our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office, we can work with you to make sure you have access to support when a problem arises. While working with other patients who have scheduled visits, we can determine what we can do to bring you in and take care of your smile. Whether your oral health trouble calls for prompt care or not, we can plan treatment in a way that preserves your appearance.

What Kinds Of Problems Call For Treatment On Short Notice?

While regular dental visits are spaced out in six month intervals, there are issues that can call for a trip to our office in between these routine appointments. A physical tooth injury can call for prompt care, and so can persistent or serious pain. There are other issues that can make a trip necessary. For example, if you have something wedged between your teeth that you cannot remove with floss, seeing your dentist is recommended, as you can cause harm to your gums and experience an infection if you try to use another tool to dislodge it.

Taking Care Of Patients Who Need Prompt Care

After you contact our practice to let us know what has happened, we can work with you to determine the earliest that your appointment can take place. We can make sure you are accommodated when you arrive, though we do need to maintain our coronavirus safety standards when you are here. Your dentist will discuss the problem with you and perform an evaluation. Once we know what the matter is, we can proceed with restorative dental work and resolve the trouble that affects you.

We Can Provide Treatment That Preserves Your Smile

Restorative treatment can give you back your oral health while also preserving your smile. We use dental fillings and dental crowns that have the right color and texture to imitate healthy enamel. By matching the color and texture of teeth, and by making sure a crown is the right shape and size to look appropriate for your smile, we can ensure that important work does not change your appearance, even as it takes on potentially serious issues.
