Dental Emergency or Not?

Tooth pain relief can be attained with emergency dental care in Fishers.
What really constitutes a dental emergency? Some questions to ask yourself: Do you need tooth pain relief? Is the pain bad enough to restrict you from doing daily activities like work or school? Did something happen that makes it embarrassing to smile or difficult to eat? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions then you are indeed experiencing a dental emergency and should call our Indianapolis area emergency dentist right away!

Some common dental emergencies may include:

  • Cracked Tooth | A cracked tooth is a tooth with a dental fracture. Cracked teeth can irritate your dental pulp and cause infection if the crack isn’t treated. Treatment varies depending on the severity of the crack, and can range from observation to inserting a tooth crown. A root canal or tooth extraction may even be needed in more extreme scenarios.
  • Chipped Tooth | A chipped tooth negatively impacts your appearance and can cause pain if it exposes the tooth’s nerve. Prompt examination and treatment of a chipped tooth is critical to ensure cavities or infection don’t occur. One of the most common treatments for a chipped tooth is dental bonding. Bonding is a composite resin that is bonded to the surface of the tooth and then smoothed out to look, feel, and function as a real tooth.
  • A Knocked Out or Lost Tooth | If your tooth becomes knocked out, saving the tooth is paramount. If you are unable to reinsert the tooth into your gumline, place the tooth in a container of milk and bring it in immediately. We will offer you fast dental emergency treatment.
  • A Broken Tooth | If your tooth breaks, apply a cold compress to the area immediately to relieve some of the pain and call us. We will arrange for an emergency restorative dentistry treatment immediately to help.
  • Severe Tooth Pain | If you are experiencing severe, agonizing tooth pain, call us now. This could be an indication of a bigger issue, or a sign that an emergency root canal is necessary. We will do everything we can to relieve your pain and provide you with a fast, effective solution.
  • Lost Dental Work | If dental work gets knocked loose or lost, call us immediately. We will provide emergency care for your teeth and replace the dental work as soon as possible.

    Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

    —Pat S.

    Jeanie M.

    I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

    —Jeanie M.

    Leslee D.

    I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

    —Leslee D.

    Cindy M.

    My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!

    —Judy S.
