Emergency Care at Vivid Smiles

Don’t Wait For Treatment

Getting immediate care for a dental emergency is the best way to ensure that you save your tooth, eliminate pain, and avoid further complications related to your condition. At Vivid Smiles, we offer same-day appointments for all of our patients. If possible, we ask that you call ahead at (812) 803-2340 to let us know you’re coming in so we can prepare accordingly, but we know this isn’t always possible. You can also walk into our office at 2512 Wabash Avenue, Terre Haute, IN 47803, and we’ll treat you as soon as we can.

Saturday Appointments

At Vivid Smiles, we offer extended hours throughout the week for emergency appointments to make sure you can get the care that you need to preserve your smile. We’re also open on Saturdays because we know that dental emergencies don’t just happen during the week. Our team is skilled at providing efficient care when you need it most, so don’t hesitate to call or come in if you are experiencing a dental emergency.

Common Oral Emergencies

Some dental emergencies are more obvious than others. An oral injury like a loose or knocked-out (avulsed), cracked, or chipped out tooth will always require professional emergency dental care. However, there are also other conditions that count as dental emergencies. If you pull out or damage dental work like a filling or crown, for example, this counts as an emergency. The same is true of a serious toothache, which could indicate an infected tooth. If you are in pain and you do not know how to treat your dental condition on your own, it’s important to seek emergency care as soon as possible.

A Step-By-Step Guide

  • The first and most important thing to do is to call our office and let us know that you’re coming in for an emergency appointment.
  • Next, recover your lost tooth or dental work (if applicable). Your tooth should be replaced in the socket or put in a small container of milk. Dental work can be put in a plastic bag.
  • If you have time before your appointment, you can take steps to treat your pain and discomfort on your own. Bleeding can be treated with clean gauze or cotton balls. You can also take medicine like ibuprofen (Motrin) or naproxen (Aleve) for your pain. Applying an ice pack to the outside of your mouth will also help you mitigate swelling and discomfort. 
  • Above all, make sure to come to our office as soon as possible. Treating your own pain and discomfort is no substitute for getting emergency care and a permanent solution for your condition.
