We Are Open for Dental Emergencies—Help Alleviate Strain on Our Hospitals

 You likely have seen in the news that COVID-19 (coronavirus) is putting a tremendous strain on hospitals nationwide. Our dentists and staff here at Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry are doing their best to help ease the impact dental emergencies have on our local North Carolina hospitals. With over 30 locations throughout the state, we are accepting patients for emergency dentistry in order to help you get the care you need in a timely manner as well as alleviate emergency room overcrowding and stop the spread of the COVID-19 infections throughout the state.

 

Why Choose an Emergency Dentist Over a Hospital?                     

For many people, when they experience pain or bleeding of any kind, their first thought is to rush to the emergency room at the nearest hospital. However, most hospitals will simply refer these patients back to a dental office to have their problems treated by a dental professional. All of our dental practices offer emergency dentistry in North Carolina, so instead of going to the emergency room as the first stop, choosing one of the nearest Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry location can not only help you get seen in a more timely manner, but also keeps the hospital ER rooms open and under less stress during this crisis. And when you come to one of our sterilized, OSHA-compliant offices, you put yourself and your family at a much lower risk of spreading the virus and helping to flatten the curve.

 

We offer solutions to most dental emergencies and can often see patients the same day they call us. Our offices have digital x-rays that can capture detailed images of your mouth to help identify the cause of your problem and help our dentists come to an easy solution. We do everything we can to save your teeth, but for those with painful teeth or who have been in an accident, we can offer quick and gentle tooth extraction to almost immediately ease the pain. Knocked out teeth or teeth that were extracted can also be replaced with lifelike dental implants, which mimic the look, feel and function of natural teeth.

 

What Qualifies as a Dental Emergency?

  • Bleeding in the mouth or around teeth
  • Pain in the jaw or around teeth
  • Tooth or gum infection
  • Knocked out teeth
  • Swelling of the mouth or face

 

Keeping You and Your Family Safe

All our practices take every precaution to keep patients healthy by following effective sanitation and OSHA protocols at all times. Between every patient, our treatment rooms are given a thorough cleaning and are disinfected with EPA-approved chemicals that kill bacteria, viruses, and blood-borne pathogens. By keeping you safe and healthy in our conveniently located offices, we can help slow down the spread of COVID-19, help our hospitals care for their patients and staff, and treat your needs in the most efficient, successful way possible.
