Who Needs an Emergency Dentist?

There are numerous situations that require immediate care. The mouth is a delicate part of the body, and damage can rapidly worsen or become permanent if not managed and restored.

Some examples of a situation in which you might need to see us include:

  • Having uncontrollable bleeding from the tongue or gums
  • Experiencing an intense localized pain or swelling in the mouth
  • Breaking or fracturing a tooth so that the soft interior is exposed

If you are unsure if you need emergency services, call our office and explain the situation. We can provide instructions and details about your next steps.

Do I Need a Ride Home?

Although we are local in Knoxville, TN, some dental emergencies that involve trauma in and around the mouth might require a referral to a specialist. So if you are visiting TLC Dental Care for emergency dentistry near you for this reason, it is a good idea to bring along an adult with a license who can help get you home, just in case you are referred to a specialist that uses sedation.
