"EXCELLENT place to go to. I can't say enough on how accommodating and welcoming everyone is there. From the very moment I walked in, all anxiety of seeing a dentist for and my kids were put at ease. The dentist, my poor memory to recall his name, not only fun to look at, but was really knowledgeable about all my neurotic concerns. We will be going back and recommending to everyone we know."- C.H. / Yelp / Mar 11, 2020

Best Candidates for Emergency Dental Care
We know that dental emergencies don't always happen during business hours. Whether your dental emergency occurs after-hours, during the day, or on the weekend, call our office right away so we can give you instructions on proper oral care until we can get you in to see the dentist. It may be that your dental emergency causes no pain or discomfort, but if you experience trauma or damage to your teeth, gums, or other structures in or around your mouth, reach out to our team so we can determine if treatment is necessary.
You may have a dental emergency if you experience any of the following:
Teeth that have been knocked out
Teeth or fillings that have been damaged or broken
Crowns, bridges, and fillings that have become dislocated or loose
Trauma/injury to the mouth or jaw
Infections or abscesses in a tooth
Lingering pain or discomfort
Bleeding with no known cause
What To Expect with Emergency Dental Care
At Made Ya Smile Rayford, we make every effort to offer comfortable care in the case of a dental emergency. As soon as you experience an emergency, you should contact our facility and we will schedule an appointment for your treatment. Dr. Capps and his team will provide a customized treatment plan, depending on your unique situation. In most cases, x-rays or digital scans will need to be taken to identify any hidden damage that may not be noticeable on the surface.
As soon as all of the damage to your mouth has been assessed, Dr. Capps will help you understand your treatment options. In severe cases, you may need to seek medical attention at an emergency room. After any critical injuries have been taken care off, our team can provide treatment for your oral care needs.
Emergency Dental Care Recovery
We will provide treatment guidelines for home care at your dental emergency visit. Antibiotics or pain relievers may be prescribed or recommended to treat infection or make you more comfortable. Swelling in your face or jaw may be relieved with cold compresses, and it may be advisable to eat soft foods until your mouth has recovered. We may suggest a mouth guard for use during sports to help you avoid dental emergencies in the future. These appliances can be custom-created for an optimal fit. It's important to avoid parafunctional habits like chewing on ice, fingernails, or other objects, as they often lead to oral damage like chipped or broken teeth. At Made Ya Smile, we recommend maintaining routine home care, and we will monitor your oral health following a dental emergency when you return for your biannual dental cleanings and exams.
Emergency Dental Care Insurance Coverage
Care for certain emergencies may be covered by your dental insurance. Our team at Made Ya Smile will contact your provider to examine your benefits and let you know about any potential out-of-pocket costs. We understand that dental emergencies are unplanned, and we will work with you to try to make your treatment fit into your budget. We accept several forms of payment, like low-interest financing with CareCredit®.
