When should I visit the dentist?

Our friendly team realizes that it is important to visit our dentist, Dr. Cory Williams, frequently to prevent potential dental complications. Depending on your dental needs, we may recommend more frequent appointments until you have your ideal, healthy smile. We also understand that, at times, dental emergencies may arise. In these cases, we urge you to contact us immediately.

What should I do in a dental emergency?

Regardless of your dental emergency, we recommend that you contact our office or other emergency services immediately.

If a tooth is knocked out, schedule an appointment with us immediately. Please bring the tooth with you, carrying it by the crown (the visible part of the tooth when it is in the mouth). If you break a tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water to keep the area clean. We recommend you use a cold compress to reduce swelling in your mouth. If you suffer from a jaw injury, apply a cold compress immediately until you can find the attention you require. If you have any questions or need assistance with a dental emergency in Wilmington, North Carolina, please contact us immediately. Our friendly dentist is devoted to providing you with the most comfortable dental care possible, regardless of the situation. We look forward to giving you the care you need.
