My Tooth Hurts. What Should I Do? Atlanta, GA
Tooth Pain Atlanta GA

If you’re in pain and can’t eat or drink, or even go about your other normal activities, then you need to see an emergency dentist in Atlanta. But due to the COVID-19 crisis, most dentists are only allowed to operate under certain restrictions at this time. Essentially, we can provide urgent and emergency care but not routine visits like cleanings or small fillings. So, what should you do?

First, Get a Good Look at Your Tooth

Look in the mirror or have a family member use a flashlight to get a good look at your tooth to see what’s going on. Are there visibly broken areas? Is there swelling, bleeding, or drainage from an abscess? Be sure to clean around the tooth with floss to make sure there’s nothing stuck under the gums or between your teeth.

Treat Minor Symptoms

Rinse with warm salt water to help with swelling, then take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory such as Motrin (ibuprofen) to see if it eases the pain.

Call Our Atlanta Emergency Dentist

Once you have a general idea of what’s going on with your tooth, call Aesthetic & Implant Center of Atlanta. If we don’t immediately answer your call (due to our atypical COVID-19 operating hours) be sure to leave a message and someone will get back with you as quickly as possible.

During our phone conversation, we’ll discuss your findings, symptoms, and the level of pain you’re experiencing. Depending on what’s going on, we can arrange to see you for same-day treatment if it qualifies as a dental emergency.

If you’re in pain and need to speak to an Atlanta dentist, we encourage you to give us a call!

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
