About Emergency Dental Care
Some dental issues (like a cracked tooth, jaw pain, a toothache, and more) need quick relief. When these dental emergencies occur, patients in the Louisville, KY area are encouraged to call our dentists at DentalWorks - Louisville for help and assistance. Our dentists will answer each question about the patient’s dental situation and talk about short-term relief and long-term treatments. For problems during regular office hours, the patient is usually able to come in to DentalWorks - Louisville for treatment, but for problems that occur after office hours, our dentists will be contacted and given the patient’s information, so our dentists can help the patient decide the best course of action. Patients can also schedule an appointment at DentalWorks - Louisville 24/7 online for problems that don’t need immediate relief.
"This is an excellent office. All of the staff are very nice, I like the way they are organized, and they offer more services than the typical dentist's office. I particularly like that, when they are assessing your gums, they go tooth by tooth and rate your gums in that area on a scale of 1-4. Other offices just give a vague "they look good/bad" and it doesn't mean to much. The way they do it allows you to see how healthy your gums are in each particular area and they can track the health over time. They also have a service in which they use a laser to kill the bacteria under the gum line, which isn't covered by most insurances but is very inexpensive and awesome that they have this. Highly recommend this office; I won't be going anywhere else!"- R.H. / Google / May 16, 2019
