Do You Have a Dental Emergency? Carrollton, GA
Dental Emergency Carrollton GA

As much as we don’t want them, dental emergencies do happen. In fact, anyone can experience a dental emergency, and they typically occur without warning. Whether it was a bad fall on the school playground or a hard bite during a corporate lunch, your teeth and jaw can suffer unexpected damage that demands urgent treatment.

It is not uncommon for patients to question whether their dental concern is a true dental emergency. In other words, does your oral issue need same-day treatment or can it wait until your next dental visit? When unsure, always call your dental provider for further direction. There are certain dental problem or types of damage that can worsen over time and lead to more costly and invasive treatment when ignored.

Here are some of the most common reasons to call an emergency dentist:

  • Knocked Out Tooth
  • Cracked Tooth
  • Temporary Dental Crown Comes Off
  • Painful or Infected Tooth
  • Broken Jaw or Jaw Pain

Preventing a Dental Emergency

Emergencies aren’t always preventable. Even the healthiest mouth can suffer unpredicted damage. However, there are some things you can do to make those unexpected dental problems less likely to occur. Here are a few ways to safeguard your teeth and avoid an emergency dental visit:

  • Stay away from tough or extra hard foods (popcorn, nuts, candy and caramel)
  • Wear a mouthguard when playing sports
  • Stop harmful oral habits (teeth grinding, chewing ice, biting pencils/nails)
  • Brush and floss regularly
  • See your dentist for routine checkups

How to Choose an Emergency Dentist

While many dentists offer emergency treatments, not all dentists are qualified to treat all types of dental emergencies. It is important to keep in mind that dental emergencies demand the expertise of a general, restorative and cosmetic dentist. In other words, you need a dentist who can not only get you out of pain, but also restore the functional integrity of your damaged teeth as well as their appearance.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Larry S.

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Jordan D.

Calm and peaceful office.

Prentice M.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
