If you think that you’re having a dental emergency, don’t wait to get the help you need. Immediate care from Fox Point Dental Studio can help you avoid complications, eliminate pain and discomfort, and get back to your day-to-day life right away.
For example, if you don’t get immediate help for an infected tooth, your condition could get worse and cause you more pain, and eventually result in the loss of your tooth. But with emergency treatment such as a root canal and dental crown at Fox Point Dental Studio, you can keep your smile healthy, get relief from pain, and avoid these complications.
You may think that the ER is the best place to get emergency dental care in Fox Point. But in fact, most ERs do not have dentists on staff, and are not equipped to handle dental emergencies. In addition, many ERs are treating patients who have COVID-19 coronavirus, so you could potentially increase your risk of exposure by going to the emergency room.
As a rule, you should only go to the ER if you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, such as a broken jaw or an oral health problem that is interfering with proper breathing. For most dental emergencies, it’s best to see emergency dentists in Fox Point like Dr. Major and Dr. Zellmer.
We are fully prepared to help you with your dental emergency in Fox Point, even during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. To schedule a same-day appointment and get the help you need from Dr. Zellmer and Dr. Major, just contact us at (414) 236-5885. Our team will see you as soon as we can.
