Karl I. Lutes, DMD is a Florence emergency dentist that provides a wide range of dentistry at our relaxing practice where patients are welcome to come in any time. Common causes of toothaches include chipped or broken teeth, which should be treated right away before they get worse and form cracks, and teeth that have been knocked out of the mouth or dislodged. Tooth pain and toothaches can also signify an emergency.
Dental trauma can happen from accidents, blows to the face or mouth, or from playing sports. Sometimes wisdom teeth can cause problems that signal a dental emergency. If they become impacted they can cause severe pain. Our Florence emergency dentist accepts most insurance plans and can work with you to find the right payment option if needed for your dental trauma. Our staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and can answer any questions you may have about our services and make an appointment for you to see if you have a cavity or if you need an extraction. And extraction is usually done if the tooth has become too damaged to save or if it is severely decayed. Any kind of extraction is done under local anesthesia.
Both extractions and fillings are very common procedures that our Florence emergency dentist performs and that are often done quickly and painlessly. Reasons a tooth may be hurting are decay, something stuck inside the tooth, a crack, or gum disease. Other causes for a toothache can be discussed with our dentist. For more information, check our website, which is full of information about fillings, dental services and extractions. We offer affordable dental care options and a well rounded range of dental services to help patients have healthy teeth for life.
