How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in Little RockOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
Some of the ways you can find a dentist near you is through websites or apps such as Yelp or Google Maps. They will show you the address, phone number, and working hours of dentists in your area, but what they won’t do is help you schedule an appointment; you will have to do it yourself. If you simply give us a call, our dental referral specialists, that are located in our US based call center, will locate a dentist best suited for you needs, and schedule an appointment for you. A report by the American Dental Association said that out of those people that haven’t had a dental visit in the past 12 months, 17% said it was because they found the time or location inconvenient, and 18% said they had trouble finding a dentist3.
You should call us in any case of dental emergency because all of them require immediate treatment. They include broken braces, facial swelling, a broken or dislocated jaw, chipped or broken crown, and a chipped, broken, loose or a knocked out tooth. Even if there are no visible problems with your tooth, but you’re feeling unbearable pain, give us a call so we can locate an emergency dentist near you. We suggest not going to the hospital’s emergency room because they can only help alleviate the pain and give you antibiotics. You will still need to see the dentist afterwards.
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.
When having your dentist appointment, tell your dentist about your dental hygiene habits, and ask him if he has any suggestions on how to improve it. The dentist may also tell you about better toothpaste, or instruct you to start flossing or start using mouthwash. Ask the dentist if there’s anything you should tell your family doctor. Inflamed gums may be an indicator of diabetes, and the dentist can point to some vitamin deficiencies. Some sudden changes to your dental health may be because of the medication you’re taking or your overall health, so let the dentist know about any health changes to your body, such as if you’re pregnant.
If you’re suffering from dental anxiety, we can locate a dentist for you that uses sedation, such as laughing gas. Dentists use other forms of sedation too, such as oral medication, IV sedation and general anesthesia. Which type of sedation the dentist will use depends on your level of anxiety, but also on the type of procedure you’re having. If you tell the dentist you’re afraid, the dentist can better guide you through the treatment, explaining every part of the process. Knowing what’s coming next will make you feel better. To feel less anxious, bring a stress relief ball or something else to squeeze on while you’re in the dentist’s chair, or bring headphones so you don’t have to listen to the drill.

It is not easy to find a walk-in dentist nowadays, and it’s for a number of reasons. Dentists like to have a well-planned schedule so there’s a chance that if you don’t require immediate attention, the staff at the dentist office will turn you away, even if they are not busy at the moment. The dentist performs some procedures only on certain days because the staff is not the same every day, so the dentist will for example do more cleanings on some days, and reserve only one or two days for complicated procedures. In order to give you accurate pricing, the staff needs to contact your insurance company to check your type of insurance, and while usually quick, sometimes it can take up to 48 hours. Dentist offices also have limited x-ray space, limiting how many patients can be seen at once. If busy, the dentist will perform a checkup on one patient, while another waits for anesthesia to take effect. This could not be done if appointments were not scheduled, and you came unannounced.
People like to save their days off for anything but the dentist, but according to the American Dental Association, 8% in Arkansas often take a day off to see one3. Dentists are very busy during off hours, such as on weekends or after 5 o’clock, when most people finish work. In addition, the ADA reports that only 4% of dentist offices in the US are open on Sundays, and 45% are open on Saturdays4. If you’re having trouble locating a dentist, call us and we will locate one for you, and schedule an appointment for you.
Top emergency dentist procedures in Little RockLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
Some of the top dental emergencies in Little Rock are a chipped and a broken tooth. You might think a chipped tooth is only of cosmetic nature, but the truth is a chipped tooth can suffer from infection, or it can completely break, requiring the dentist to either perform a root canal treatment and install a crown, or extract the tooth. In any case, the treatment will be expensive. As soon as you discover you have a chipped tooth, because in most cases there is no pain, go see a dentist to avoid extensive and costly procedures. If your tooth breaks, use an ice pack on the outside of the mouth to prevent swelling and immediately call us to schedule an appointment with an emergency dentist near you.
