Middlebury Dental Center for Emergency Care
When a dental emergency strikes, you can count on urgent care from Dr. Elahi and his team. We offer convenient hours and priority scheduling for urgent cases.
If you or a loved one is experiencing a dental emergency, call us promptly at (203) 598-3889.
We frequently see patients on an emergency basis for the following circumstances:
- Lost Teeth – With prudent attention, your lost tooth can be reattached. If your fallen tooth is intact and hydrated, it may reattach itself with prompt care from our staff. Call us immediately if you knock out or otherwise lose a tooth.
- Infections and Abscesses – An oral infection can spread to the rest of the body if left untreated. Early intervention will save your teeth and your overall health. Reach out to us at the first sign of infection—sensitivity, aching, swelling, fever, or abscesses.
- Toothaches – Most often, a toothache indicates an infection. General medicine may be able to treat the bacteria with antibiotics, but only a dental professional can eliminate the cause of a toothache at its source.
- Root Canals – Endodontic therapy, commonly referred to as root canals, saves badly infected teeth from extraction. This treatment has a higher success rate with early execution, so we frequently perform root canals as soon as possible.
Our hours vary throughout the month, making scheduled appointments easier and emergencies quicker to accommodate. Although our office is closed on Wednesdays, we remain available for emergency cases. Dr. Elahi recognizes the importance of oral health and thus tries to make dental care as conveniently available as possible—especially for emergencies.
Create a Dental Emergency Kit
In the crucial minutes after an emergency has occurred, you are the key to saving your smile. With dental emergency supplies, you have a better chance of keeping your teeth and staying comfortable. Gauze, painkillers, and tooth-saving kits are essential components of a well-stocked emergency kit. You can find these items at your local drugstore.
Most importantly, keep our number on hand for dental emergencies. After you’ve managed the situation, Dr. Elahi can heal you and repair the damage.
