Emergency Dental Services

Unfortunately, no matter how diligent you are about your oral health, accidents and emergencies do happen.

It’s important to know that you have the right team on your side when you face a dental emergency, and your team at Tryon Family Dentistry with convenient locations in both Raleigh and Cary, NC, is here for you.

Same-day Dentistry to Meet your Needs

We have morning and evening availability, and we make every effort to see emergency patients the same day. With our CEREC technology, we can also typically offer same day restorations such as crowns, onlays, and veneers to restore fractured or damaged teeth right away, if needed.

Understanding what to do during a dental emergency also helps make your situation less stressful. Here are some helpful tips on handling common dental emergencies.

What to do in a Dental Emergency

Everyone experiences a dental emergency at least once in their lifetime. Our Raleigh dentists have seen everything, from major mouth trauma from an accident to common toothaches.

A broken or lost restoration: While we wish they’d last forever, dental restorations do have a lifespan and will eventually break down. If your old filling or crown fractures or falls out, it will need to be replaced in order to protect your tooth from an infection or further damage.

A knocked-out tooth: Act quickly if your tooth has been knocked out because we have the best chance of saving it when we can see you as soon as possible. Be careful transporting your tooth to our office, and try not to handle it too much. Place it back in its socket or use a container of milk to transport it and keep the cells moist and alive.

A toothache or constant pain: Pain often indicates an infection in your tooth, especially if it is constant. If your tooth is infected, it needs to be treated quickly since an infection can spread to your other teeth and even affect your jawbone. Contact our office promptly. Root canal therapy may be able to preserve your tooth.

Injuries to your soft tissues: Injuries to your cheeks, lips, gums, and tongue tend to bleed a lot. You can stop the bleeding with a cold compress applied with light pressure. When the bleeding has stopped, contact our office for further instruction and to determine if you need immediate attention.

A broken tooth: If you have a tooth that is broken, gather the pieces and contact our office right away. We’ll assess your tooth and recommend the right treatment for your needs. CEREC technology allows us to restore teeth with veneers or crowns the same day. If your tooth is chipped, it will need to be smoothed eventually, but it may not require immediate attention.

“My dental assistant is Gloria, who is always super friendly, masterfully efficient and skilled, and amazing at answering all of my questions and anticipating anything out of the ordinary that Dr. Leo may need for his evaluation. Dr. Leo is my fabulous dentist who is also very friendly, skilled and efficient, takes whatever time is needed for my evaluation and questions, and provides honest assessment. He runs a high caliber business that has been consistently pleasant, remains way ahead of the technology, and the entire office is always extremely clean and bright.

“Had another wonderful experience at Tryon Family Dentistry today! I felt safe during this pandemic due to the constant cleaning/disinfecting I observed. Everyone there goes out of their way to ensure your comfort and address any/all questions you may have.”
- Leslie Meilhon
“I had neglected my dental care for over 20 years due to fear of the whole process. I took a leap of faith and went to this office and I am so glad I did. They understood my situation and moved forward without making me feel bad. It was an 8 month marathon of dental work. I had fillings, cleanings, wisdom teeth removed, an extraction and a wonderful implant put in. I was a hard patient to work with and the whole crew was nice to me every step of the way. Years from now when I still have my teeth I’ll have this place to thank. They fixed me up now and destroyed my fear of the dentist office for the future.”
- Jay P.
“I just left this dentist office and I am so impressed. I was able to complete all my paperwork online so I did not have to arrive early and I had only a short wait time once there. While there I learned of tools that I could use at home and even saw what my smile would look like with Invisalign. I walked away with a good experience and my treatment plan. Friendly staff, extremely clean and I felt thoroughly taken care of. Thank you Tryon Family Dentistry”
- Dre Haskins

The Latest in Aligner Technology

What Is Invisalign?

Instead of relying on metal brackets and wires to move teeth, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners custom designed for each patient’s individual treatment plan. The aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth so they don’t interfere with your normal activities or your speech. Because they are clear, they are hardly noticeable and provide the utmost discretion during treatment.
