Central Kentucky Dental

What if I have a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies seem to pop up at the most inopportune times and can disrupt your schedule and your sleep! If you wonder if your dental condition requires an emergency dental visit, contact our Winchester dental office, and our helpful team will guide you through the process.

If you have a toothache and swelling, you likely have an infection in your tooth or bone. In most cases, the pain will not resolve independently and requires an emergency trip to the dentist.

Often, root canal treatment can save your natural tooth, which is the most conservative approach. Otherwise, tooth extraction may be required, and we can talk to you about tooth replacement. 

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

The best insurance against a dental emergency is your routine visits to Central Kentucky Dental. Regular checkups and cleanings give your dentist an opportunity to identify minor problems with your dental health before they become big ones!

Of course, not every dental emergency can be avoided, and we are here when you need us most.

Other common dental emergencies include:

  • Broken teeth, fillings, or crowns
  • Damaged restorations or prosthetics
  • Trauma or sporting accidents
  • Lacerations inside the mouth or on the gums
  • Toothache, pressure, or sensitivity
