Emergency Dental Services
in Rocky Mount

Dental emergencies often arise at the most inconvenient times. An injury to your teeth and gums can be potentially serious and should not be ignored. Please call us immediately at 252-316-2214 if you have an urgent dental condition.

We reserve time in our daily schedule to be available for these unfortunate situations and will do all we can to address your needs with prompt attention and empathetic care.

If you’re experiencing a dental emergency in Rocky Mount, there are some useful ways to soothe your discomfort before you come to your appointment with us, including:

  • Knocked out tooth – Keep it moist. If you can, place the tooth back in the socket without touching the root. Placing it between your gums or in milk works too.
  • Cracked tooth – Rinse with warm water. Cold compresses help with swelling.
  • Tooth Pain – Rinse with warm water. Use floss to remove any debris.
  • Bad bite – If you bite your tongue or lip, clean the area and apply a cold compress.

Our office hours are 8:30 am – 5:00 pm Monday through Thursday and 8:30 am – 1:00 pm on Fridays. For emergencies after our regular business hours, patients of record may reach the doctors by calling 252-316-2214 and following the instructions given.
