If you have a toothache, broken tooth, or a pulled-out filling, Dr. Blalock and the team at Lakeside Dental are here to help. No matter what your dental emergency may be, call now or come to our office for a same-day emergency appointment.
Dental emergencies are inconvenient and can be extremely painful and harmful to your overall oral health. That’s why we offer same-day, weekend, and after-hours care at Lakeside Dental. Our team is here for you when you need it most. Just give us a call at (865) 635-4999 to let us know you’re coming in, or stop by our office at 1108 E Broadway Street, Lenoir City, TN 37772. Can’t make it in during our normal office hours? Give us a call, and we’d be happy to schedule you for an after-hours or weekend emergency appointment so that you can get the help you need. Contact our team for details, or take a look at our office hours to see when we can accommodate you for a weekend emergency appointment.
The most common dental emergencies include oral injuries, such as knocked-out teeth, loose teeth, cracked and broken teeth, and oral lacerations. Other common issues include severe toothaches, bleeding gums and pulled-out dental work (such as fillings and crowns). If you think your condition counts as an emergency, don’t wait! Schedule an appointment right away.
First, call our office immediately. Some conditions, like a knocked-out tooth, must be treated within 1-2 hours for the best results. After you call, recover your knocked-out tooth or pulled-out dental work (if applicable) and remember to bring it with you to your appointment. A loose tooth can be placed in a bag of cold milk to preserve the root until your appointment if you are not able to replace the tooth gently back in its socket. Use clean gauze or cotton balls to treat bleeding, if necessary, and come to our office as soon as possible for the best outcome.
We offer laughing gas sedation at our office, which ensures that you feel safe and comfortable during your appointment. Even patients with severe dental anxiety can feel relaxed and calm during an emergency appointment. If you are interested in sedation for your emergency dental appointment, be sure to mention it when you give us a call. We will gladly go over your options with you.
About one in six Americans experience a dental emergency each year, and 23% of all emergency visits are due to pulled-out crowns or fillings.
Dental emergencies like a cracked or broken tooth can cause you serious pain and discomfort. Same-day care is the best way to eliminate your pain.
The sooner you get treatment, the more likely it is that we can save your tooth and prevent further complications, such as tooth infections.
Our convenient same-day emergency services let you get back to your daily routine quickly.
