How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in NashvilleOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
A research done by McKinsey & Company shows that around 42% of adults in Tennessee haven’t had a dental visit in the last 12 months3. Seeing a dentist every six months for a regular checkup and cleaning will not only save your teeth, but also money because you will discover any dental problems you might have on time. Waiting until you start having pain in your tooth means it’s already too late, as you will have to repair your teeth instead of simply cleaning them. What’s worse, the dentist might even have to perform extensive and costly procedures such as a root canal treatment, and later even install a crown. Instead of waiting for a toothache, call us and we will schedule an appointment for you at a time that best suits you. Even if you’re experiencing a dental emergency, and immediately need to get to a dentist, you can count on us to find one for you. We can schedule an appointment with a dentist for the first thing in the morning if not dentist offices near you are open. We can do this because of our close cooperation with dentists which gives us access to their appointment books. That means we can directly schedule an appointment for you, without having to contact them first.
You should see an emergency dentist anytime you are suffering from unbearable pain, swollen cheeks, bleeding gums, when your crown is broken or fell out, or when your tooth is chipped, broken, loose or knocked out.
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 scheduling an appointment, tell your dentist if you have dental anxiety. This way the dentist can prepare before you come to the office, as he can talk to you about sedation options. If you’re scheduling an appointment through us, tell us you’re afraid of the dentist, and we will locate a dentist for you that specializes in sedation dentistry. There are different types of sedation available to you, depending on the procedure you’ll be having, but also on your level of anxiety. Sedation through oral medication, and laughing gas (nitrous oxide) is for basic procedures, while more complicated ones require IV sedation, and even general anesthesia. The last one is rarely used, as it completely puts you to sleep, unless you’re having more extensive oral surgery.
Before you come to the dentist office, make sure your dentist has your dental records. If you’re switching dentists, you should contact your previous one to give you a copy of the dental records. In case you’re seeing the same dentist, they should already have them. These dental records are basically your medical history, since they show what previous procedures you had, medication you are taking, and the position of your cavities, fillings, etc. What’s most important, they could save you both time and money because they contain your x-rays, which show the dentist the complete picture of your teeth.

The most common reason for people not seeing a dentist twice a year, as advised, is the cost. A report by the American Dental Association states that 70% of people that haven’t been to the dentist in the last 12 months say cost was the main reason4. If you give us a call, we can locate a dentist for you that is in network with your insurance or accepts your form of payment, or we can find a dentist that offers help with financing. Even if you don’t have insurance, most dentist offices we cooperate with have dental plans for their patients.
The same report by the ADA shows that every three out of ten people in Tennessee avoid smiling due to the condition of their mouth and teeth4. Most people don’t go to the dentist unless they feel some pain. It’s common to even avoid going to the dentist if you have a chipped tooth or a crown, even though it may lead to an infection or complete fracture of the tooth. In case you want to go to find a walk-in dentist, give us a call. Our dental referral specialists will locate a dentist that can take you in right away, which is in most cases better than searching for a walk-in dentist yourself. Even though some dentists may advertise as taking in walk-ins, they would much rather prefer you schedule an appointment since it makes it easier for them to organize their time and give you an accurate pricing.
Top emergency dentist procedures in NashvilleLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
Nashville has many cases of chipped and broken teeth, but also of knocked out teeth. Accidents occur daily, and if your tooth happens to get knocked out, you need to take immediate action if you want to save the tooth. Pick up the tooth by the head, and rinse it under warm water. Be sure not to scrub the root of the tooth because it can contain tissue that will later help the dentist save it. If you can, put the tooth back in your socket and gently bite down until you get to the dentist. Another option is to put it into a milk filled container, and get to a dentist without delay. Getting to a dentist office within 60 minutes of losing the tooth will drastically increase the chances that the dentist will successfully put it back where it belongs.
