How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in AtlantaOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
Atlanta is home to over 200 dentists, according to KFF2, meaning there are enough dentists for the whole population of the city. However, a research done by McKinsey & Company shows that almost 40% of adults in the whole state of Georgia haven’t had a dental visit in the last 12 months3. While there are various ways of finding a dentist, such as through Yelp or Google, too many people still don’t go as often as they should. Going to the dentist every six months is imperative if you want to keep your dental health in excellent condition. Waiting longer than that to go to the dentist for a regular checkup and cleaning will increase the chances of your teeth developing cavities, which if left untreated, will require the dentist to perform extensive and costly procedures, such as a root canal treatment.
Your best option when looking for a dentist is that you give us a call. No matter where in Atlanta you’re located, our dental referral specialists will locate an emergency dentist near you and schedule an appointment for you right away. Our agents are trained to locate a dentist best suited for your needs. We will find a dentist for you that is in network with your insurance, or one that accepts your form of payment. We can also locate one that offers help with financing. Since our offices are open 24/7, you can give us a call at any time of the day.
Things to know before your emergency dentist appointmentPreparing for your emergency dental visit will help minimize anxiety and reduce the overall time you will have to spend at the dentist office.
One of the most important things the dentist needs are your dental records. They are like your medical history, because they contain all information about your previous visits, such as what procedures you had, what medication you’re taking and what medicine you’re allergic to, etc. Most importantly, your x-rays are in your dental records, meaning the dentist can look at them to see where your cavities, fillings and crowns are. This will save you money, but also time, because you won’t have to take new ones. If you’re seeing the same dentist, you shouldn’t worry as they have your dental records. However, if you’re changing to a new dentist, it would be wise to contact your previous one so he can give you a copy of your dental records. Besides these, you should also bring with you any information the staff at the dentist office might need, such as your insurance card.
Try to arrive 15 minutes early to your appointment. This will ensure you have enough time to fill out the forms the staff gives you, but it is also useful to arrive early so you can relax before you start your treatment. You will have enough time to sit in the waiting room and get to know the staff and the surroundings, instead of rushing to the dentist’s chair as soon as you walk into the office. If you’re suffering from anxiety, bring a friend with you to stay in the waiting room, as knowing that someone you know is right next door in the waiting room will give you a sense of security.

Top emergency dentist procedures in AtlantaLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
Some of the most common emergency procedures performed on patients in Atlanta are treatment of a chipped tooth and a chipped crown. A chipped tooth most often occurs when chewing on hard foods, but caries may be another reason. If a chipped tooth is not treated as soon as possible, the tooth may become infected, or it may even fracture completely, requiring the dentist to perform a root canal treatment to save it, or even extract it. A chipped crown should also be looked at by the dentist, because food may get in the crack and damage the tooth under the crown or adjacent teeth. If the chip is small, the dentist can polish the crown, instead of installing a new one. It’s better not to wait too long, because the crown can come off or break, just like a tooth, if not treated with urgency.
