Urgent care may also be needed when gums have been injured, or when severe, persistent pain occurs.

This is why our Indianapolis practice makes every effort to fit patients in as needed for prompt care.

Tooth damage

If a tooth has been damaged in any way, prompt dental care is needed. Damage may be obvious, such as a loose or lost restoration or a fracture. Damage may be invisible but impossible to ignore, as well, such as a persistent, intense toothache. Tooth pain is actually one of the most common dental situations treated by dentists around the world. At home, pain may be addressed with cold compresses against the cheek, or lukewarm water rinses. These temporary solutions may improve comfort until you can be seen by your dentist.

Soft tissue injuries

If soft tissue in the mouth has been injured, medical attention may be required. Your dentist, however, can help you determine the best treatment for soft tissue injury, and may be able to provide relief. At home, discomfort may be alleviated with gentle rinsing with lukewarm salt water. If tissue is bleeding, a gauze pad or moist tea bag may be applied with gentle pressure. These temporary solutions do not replace professional dental or medical care, and they should be used only to improve comfort until care can be received.

Dental emergencies are unpleasant surprises that can get in the way of life. Dr. Church and the experienced dental team at Washington Street Dentistry can see you through your dental emergency with gentle, effective care. Contact our Indianapolis dental office to schedule your routine dental exam and decrease your risk of unpleasant dental surprises.

I continue to be impressed with Dr. Church and his staff. They seem to have a great rapport, and his chairside manner is remarkable. In addition, I have never been made to feel embarrassed or punished because of the amount of work my teeth need. Keep up the good work
