Emergency Dental Services In Jackson, WY
Jackson, WY is within an hour of several popular vacation destinations: Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and other wilderness areas. These beautiful landscapes make a great place to escape daily life for a while, but this also makes them poor places to experience a dental emergency.
Elkridge Dental is proud to offer dental emergency services to the locals and visitors of Jackson. These services are within reach of the nearby parks and is deeply responsive to your needs. If you have a tooth knocked out in Yellowstone or a bitten tongue in Grand Teton, Doctors Nathan Tanner and Mary Bucklin are the dentists to call.
Not only is Elkridge Dental within an hour of these parks, so you can travel to a dentist as fast as possible, but our Jackson dentists have a one-hour emergency appointment policy. If you call during normal business hours regarding an emergency, we do our best to arrange an appointment with Dr. Espinoza for you within an hour of your call. We’re ready to see you once you walk in the door.
Calling outside our normal business hours doesn’t mean your emergency needs cannot be served. Our answering machine will tell you our emergency number, which you can call to reach Dr. Galbraith . He will give you the best advice to mitigate your situation and will schedule a timeframe for you to see him. We firmly believe that you should never have to wait any longer than necessary to get the service you need.
Resolving Your Dental Emergencies
At Elkridge Dental, we know that dental emergencies can take many shapes and forms, ranging from bitten tongues to toothaches. Among the most common cases our dentists see are tooth avulsion and cracked teeth.
Tooth avulsion is when you have had a tooth knocked out due to facial trauma; this same trauma may have caused a crack in another tooth. The knocked-out tooth needs to be replanted as soon as possible, once it has been properly rinsed to remove any debris. The doctors and staff at Elkridge Dental can guide you through the replanting process and will splint the tooth to help it stay in place while it heals. The cracked tooth, meanwhile, may require a crown or similar protection, depending on the depth of the crack.
If the tooth cannot be replanted, or if the cracked tooth has been too severely damaged, then a replacement of some sort may be necessary. Dr. Galbraith has significant experience in restorative procedures, including dental implants. We always strive to save the natural tooth as much as possible, but in the event that the tooth cannot be saved, our Jackson implant dentist can provide you with a permanent tooth replacement.
Elkridge Dental loves solving the dental emergencies of Jackson, Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and the neighboring communities. We’re located only two blocks away from Jackson’s Town Square, making us easy to find when those emergencies occur.
