What To Look For In An Emergency Dentist

Let’s face it; if you are experiencing a dental emergency, you don’t have time to call around or interview multiple practices for a qualified emergency dentist. Therefore, knowing what to look for now can ensure you go to the right place if you need immediate dental treatment.

First and foremost, avoid going to the ER for a dental emergency that involves tooth pain. Not only is this is the wrong place to get proper dental care, it can also end up costing much more. Seeing your dentist for emergency treatment is always best unless you have uncontrolled bleeding or lacerations on your lips, cheek or tongue.

When seeking emergency dental care, most patients need two things: pain relief and tooth restoration. It is important to find a dentist who can not only bring you out of pain or discomfort but also provide the restorative and cosmetic services you need to repair your smile.

At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we value the importance of handing your dental emergencies with prompt attention and comprehensive care. Our office is equipped with sedation dentistry to keep you comfortable and we use the latest dental technology to streamline your procedures. Dr. Gilreath is a skilled restorative dentist with cosmetic talent. Therefore, if you have a broken tooth, avulsed tooth or other dental injury, you can trust that he will restore both the function and beauty of your smile.

A good emergency dentist should also be able to treat patients of all ages. This gives families extra confidence in knowing that if their son suffers a mouth injury at the ballpark or dad loses a crown, they can depend on one trusted family dentist.

Not all dental concerns are emergency situations. You should be able to promptly get in touch with your dentist or dental office to find out. Common dental emergencies that we treat at Gilreath Family Dentistry include the following:

  • Minor chips
  • Fractured teeth
  • Avulsed teeth
  • Trauma or injury to the teeth or gums
  • Severe toothaches
  • Lost fillings
  • Caps and crowns that have been displaced

A dental emergency can be frightening and many patients wonder if the future of their smile is being threatened. At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we can put you at ease. We can handle simple and complex cases of dental damage, infection and other concerns with the highest level of dental care available.

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
