Is My Dental Concern An Emergency? Marietta, GA

Is My Dental Concern An Emergency?

Dental Emergency

Anyone can encounter a dental emergency at any point in their life. Sometimes you may have toothache for a few hours & just by taking some pain-relieving pills, it might fade off. But there are some severe cases where pain-relieving medicines are enough to eliminate the pain. But how would you know it is the time to visit an emergency dentist? Below we have listed down some concerns that should never go ignored & you should visit your emergency dentist in Marietta as soon as possible.

Sudden & Extreme Toothache

You must never ignore a toothache, but every toothache is not considered a dental emergency. For instance, your tooth may get sensitive because you need to make some changes to your hygiene routine, or because a piece of food got stuck between the tooth. Yet, if you experience a sudden and severe toothache, the cause may be more severe, and therefore, it might affect your oral health. After a thorough exam and analysis, our Marietta dentist can help you determine the reason behind your severe toothache and suggest an appropriate treatment to fix the toothache and preserve your smile.

Trauma to the Face or Mouth

A traumatic injury to the face or mouth is always an emergency, and depending on the damage caused, our emergency dentist in Marietta may be the best person to call. Such injuries can differ widely in how severe they are and what regions of your face or mouth they impact. However, in many cases, an injury in one area can have severe impacts on the health and oral structures. During your visit to our emergency dentist in Marietta, a careful and thorough examination with detailed digital imaging can help us decide the exact nature and degree of your injuries. If necessary, your treatment may need a team effort of a general dentist and one or more oral specialists.

Gum Bleeding 

When you notice a little blood mixed in with your saliva and toothpaste when you brush your teeth, the cause is usually gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease. It can be a severe warning of a disorder that can ultimately become much more intense but can be addressed successfully during your next dental appointment at our dental office in Marietta. However, if you notice that your gums or tissues bleed without exerting pressure, the cause may be more powerful and immediate than an early gum infection.

Oral health issue develops slowly all because of poor oral hygiene. If you want to preserve your overall health, you must begin looking after your oral health first. Brushing twice a day & flossing after every meal can do wonders for your oral health. Also, routine dental visits to your Marietta dentist help you keep track of your health & any developing oral issue at an early stage. It is never too late to visit a dentist for a dental examination. Contact us today, we can help you get relief from your oral issue & provide you emergency dental assistance immediately at our dental office in Marietta.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
