Emergency Dentistry

Dental emergencies are a common part of life, and nearly everyone is familiar with the helpless feeling that comes from needing help and not knowing where to turn.

Next time you need emergency dentistry, call the team at Murfree Dental. Whether you woke up with a throbbing toothache at 2 AM or broke a tooth on that crunchy bread you just had to try, we make your dental emergency in Murfreesboro a priority.

Expert Treatment for Your Dental Emergency

Dr. John Murfree has been providing relief and treatment for dental emergencies for over 10 years. He knows from experience that it is always better to address an urgent problem sooner rather than later—for the sake of your comfort and your continued good dental health.

When you have a dental emergency in Murfreesboro, call us at (615) 893-1770 first. We always arrange our daily schedule to allow extra time for patients with urgent dental needs that can’t wait.

Some of the dental emergencies we commonly treat are:

  • Toothaches
  • Jaw pain or swelling
  • Bleeding, tender, or puffy gums
  • Abscessed or infected teeth
  • Dental trauma including knocked-out teeth
  • Broken, chipped, or cracked teeth
  • Lost dental crowns and fillings
  • Broken appliances like dentures

While an emergency appointment may not allow all the time we need to treat the problem, we will always ensure that you are comfortable until our next opening when we can complete treatment.

Immediate Help for Urgent Dental Emergencies

Unless you are in pain, dental emergencies like a broken tooth or lost filling can wait a day for treatment if necessary. Others require immediate treatment, including dental trauma, severe tooth pain, and jaw pain or swelling. 

It is critically important for us to treat infected or abscessed teeth immediately. You not only need immediate relief from your pain but waiting too long puts you at risk for tooth loss and can have life-threatening consequences. 

If you suffer dental trauma like a knocked-out (avulsed) tooth, there is a two-hour window in which we may be able to re-implant it in your jaw successfully. Call or have a friend call us right away. Handle the tooth by the crown only and keep the root moist by placing it in your cheek pocket or in a container of saliva or milk.
