Tooth Pain Marietta GA

Knowing what to do ahead of time in an emergency not only prepares you for the situation but also increases the likelihood that a positive outcome will occur. Dental emergencies are no exception.

Your smile is one of your most unique features. Not only does your smile help people recognize you, but it also gives people an impression of the type of person you are. If you readily offer a smile to others, you are seen as someone who is friendly, confident, and approachable. Taking care of your smile will help to ensure that you can freely share it with others.

Of course, even the most dedicated oral hygiene advocates can suffer a dental emergency. A broken tooth is one of the most common dental emergencies that dentists treat across the nation every day. A broken tooth can result from a traumatic accident, a fall, being struck in the face, or biting down on something hard. While tooth enamel is the hardest substance within the human body, it is not invincible.

A broken tooth will not heal itself. You need to seek immediate care from your dentist if any damage occurs to your teeth to save your tooth and protect the rest of your smile. If you break a tooth, follow these steps as outlined by the American Dental Association:

  1. Find any pieces of your tooth that have broken off.
  2. Place the pieces in a small cup with milk or your own saliva to keep them moist.
  3. Call your dentist immediately!
  4. Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the affected area.
  5. Place a cold compress on the outside of your mouth to help prevent swelling.
  6. If you are in intense pain, take an over-the-counter pain reliever to help manage your pain until you see the dentist.
  7. Try not to panic.

A broken tooth can be both painful and devastating. Luckily, dentists are able to restore your smile through advanced treatments. If a tooth is broken below the dentin layer where the tooth roots are, dental bonding may be all that is needed to repair the tooth. However, if the tooth is broken at the root, a root canal will typically be necessary to save the natural tooth and restore your smile. A root canal is not painful!

At Engineered Smiles, we understand how upsetting a broken tooth can be. Our practice is here to provide you with exceptional dental care. Please contact us immediately if you experience any dental emergency.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
