Same-Day Dentistry Q&A

Why would I need same-day dentistry?

Same-day dentistry diagnoses and treats dental problems that need immediate care. Not all dental issues are emergencies, but if you have pain that doesn’t improve or bleeding that won’t stop, you need same-day dentistry. 

The Marvel Dental team sets aside time for same-day appointments at both practice locations. If you or a loved one need dental care but aren’t on the schedule, simply call the nearest office and explain your situation or walk into the lobby. 

What types of problems benefit from same-day dentistry?

The Marvel Dental team uses same-day dentistry to treat various issues, including:

  • Lost or broken dental restorations
  • Loose or partially dislodged teeth
  • Severe toothaches
  • Badly cracked teeth
  • Knocked-out permanent teeth
  • Severe soft tissue injuries (like cuts or busted lips)

Most same-day appointments are for mild injuries, but you might also benefit if you have severe swelling in your gum or jaw due to an oral abscess. 

How can I tell if I need same-day dentistry?

The easiest way to tell if you need same-day dentistry is to consider your symptoms. Contact the nearest Marvel Dental office immediately if you have severe bleeding or pain. 

If you develop mild symptoms, outside of normal business hours, like a mild toothache, you can probably wait until the next day to schedule an appointment. The same rule applies if you get something lodged between your teeth, like a piece of food. Often, a toothpick or dental floss can dislodge the item and provide relief. 

Is there any way to prevent the need for same-day dentistry?

There’s no way to prevent the need for same-day dentistry altogether. Accidents and injuries happen on occasion, even if you take steps to protect your teeth and gums. However, there are ways to keep your smile problem-free. 

The Marvel Dental team recommends brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing regularly, and visiting the nearest office every six months for preventive care. To prevent tooth damage, wear a mouthguard when playing sports, don’t bite your fingernails, and avoid opening packaging with your teeth.
