Lafayette LA Emergency Dentist
When you’re in pain you need to see a dentist right away. You don’t want to wait weeks for an appointment. Dr. Malone and his associates will see you the same day you called, during normal office hours—even if you’re not a patient. They can do this because they know emergencies come up and are careful to leave room for that in their schedule.
You may be tempted to wait and see if the pain will pass. Be careful about this. Pain is usually a sign of an infected tooth. Once it begins to abscess, the pain will likely go away. Unfortunately, the infection is still there and will continue to spread until it is dealt with.
Stress Free Emergency Dentistry
Many patients end up with a tooth infection because they avoid going to the dentist. One of the primary reasons for that is dental anxiety. If you are a fearful patient we want you to know first of all that you will not be judged or lectured— no matter how long it has been since you’ve been to the dentist. We’re just here to help you now.
Dr. Malone and his associates understand that if you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, you may be a bit fearful. They’re compassionate about your feelings and will make sure you understand everything that is going on during your appointment.
If you’re in pain, call our office now. We’ll get you in today. 337.989.1268
