Maine Emergency Dentist
The team at Mountain View Dentistry understands that when someone has tooth pain, it is emergent. You can become anxious, frightened, and overwhelmed. Our goal is to relieve your pain as soon as possible. We will gladly see you for a limited exam, focused on your primary concern, whether it is acute or chronic pain, or a chipped tooth.
New Patients Welcome
Sometimes the pain can be managed and treated that day or very soon after, even if you are a new patient and haven’t been seen in our office before. If you would like to get a head start on your paperwork, you can find new patient registration forms here.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Gums, lips, and the tissue around the teeth can bleed a tremendous amount even with a small trauma. The priority is to apply pressure and a cold compress. Contact our office to see how we can help.
If you chipped a tooth, collect as many pieces as possible and bring them with you to your appointment. Dr. Annis will evaluate the tooth/teeth and will recommend possible treatments, including bonding, a crown, or veneer.
If a tooth has been knocked out, time is critical. Do not wash the tooth! Place the tooth back in the socket the correct way. Otherwise, place the tooth in a cup of milk and get to a dentist as quickly as possible. As a last resort, visit the Emergency Room. The survival of the tooth is much better if the tooth can be placed and secured within an hour. Follow up care will be provided by Dr. Shilo Annis and his team to ensure an optimal recovery.
Dental Pain & Infection
A decayed or infected tooth is of high priority to treat due to the severe complications that can occur if left untreated. An untreated tooth that has been fractured, decayed or injured can cause dental infections. These infections can be very serious and require professional treatment, including antibiotics, a root canal treatment or an extraction as the last resort. We are here to determine the best and fastest acting plan to resolve your pain. When you need to see a Maine emergency dentist, visit Mountain View Dentistry.
