At Northwest Arkansas Family Dental, we have closed our dental practice to elective treatments to help slow the spread of COVID-19. However, we remain committed to your oral health during this pandemic, which is why we are staying open to dental emergencies in Fayetteville.

Dental Emergency Protocol

Unfortunately, dental emergencies will not wait for the public health threat to pass, so if you have a dental emergency, we want to hear from you.

Simply call our dental office, leave a message, and a member of our compassionate staff will return your call at the first opportunity. We can assess your emergency by phone and make the best recommendations for your comfort and your health. Additionally, we can treat your dental emergency right here in our Fayetteville dental office.

We take special care every day to make sure our office and equipment are thoroughly sterilized. This means surgical-grade protocols for cleaning and disinfecting multiple times each day. We follow guidelines put forward by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), which means our office is clean from entrance to exit.

Dental emergencies may include:

  • Loose tooth
  • Broken tooth
  • Lost tooth
  • Broken restoration
  • Jaw or face pain or swelling
  • Toothache
  • Soft tissue injury

Lowering Your Dental Emergency Risk During COVID-19

Of course, if you can avoid a dental emergency, that would be ideal. We don’t want you to have to leave the safety of your home unless it is necessary.

Tips to help lower your risks include:

  • Brushing your teeth at least twice per day
  • Flossing between teeth at least twice per day
  • Avoiding sugary snacks and acidic beverages

If we’ve prescribed or recommended a dental appliance for you, like a nightguard for grinding and clenching your teeth, be sure to wear it.
