A dental emergency can make even the coolest of people a little anxious. Fortunately, dental sedation can keep you calm while we resolve your emergency. We offer three types of sedation:

We’ll Take Care of Your Dental Emergency So You Feel Better Soon

Dr. Hawkins has over 25 years of experience providing emergency dental care. Whether you have a toothache or a broken tooth, we’ll administer local anesthesia before we start any treatment so you don’t feel pain. Then we’ll work on solving the source of your dental distress. Here’s how we handle some common types of dental emergencies:

  • Repair Broken or Cracked Teeth – The usual solution for a broken or cracked tooth is a dental crown. Thanks to our CEREC technology, we can produce a dental crown for you in a single day. You won’t have to wait days, or even weeks, while an outside lab manufactures your crown.
  • End the Pain of a Toothache – If a cavity is the source of your toothache, Dr. Hawkins will remove all the decay, then use a tooth-colored filling or crown to repair your tooth.

If your dental damage is so extensive that your tooth can’t be saved, Dr. Hawkins can gently extract it. He’ll then help you determine which of our many tooth replacement options is right for you. Whether you get a replacement tooth or a dental restoration like a crown, we’ll guarantee your dental work for five years as long as you see us for your routine checkups.

For dental emergencies in Zanesville, keep calm and call Hawkins Complete Dental Service at 740-214-1301. For non-emergency needs, you can also request an appointment online.

Common Questions

What is considered a dental emergency?

A good rule of thumb is to consider any pain or discomfort inside your mouth a dental emergency that needs immediate care, particularly if it’s persistent. Because your teeth are not supposed to hurt, you can assume something’s wrong when they do. Generally, dental emergencies can happen as a result of an injury or accident where a tooth or restoration is somehow damaged, loosened, or knocked out.

Do I need emergency dental care for a toothache?

A toothache, whether it’s an increased sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures or an intense throbbing pain that persists whether you’re eating or not, is considered a dental emergency. This kind of dental pain can indicate problems like tooth decay, advancing gum disease, or an infection inside a tooth.

What should I do in a dental emergency?

First, get any bleeding in your mouth under control. Then call us right away so we can help you as quickly as possible. Storing our number in your phone will help you stay calm in a dental emergency, save time, and possibly save your tooth. Depending on your situation, someone from our team will give you specific instructions on preserving a damaged or knocked-out tooth until your emergency appointment with Dr. Hawkins.
