Dental emergencies are inconvenient and often stressful, but they don't have to be when you have an emergency dentist to rely on. Dr. Shafer leaves availability in our schedule to accommodate patients with dental emergencies in Gretna so we can help get you feeling better and back to your normal schedule as soon as possible.

Dental Emergencies We Can Help With

Sometimes it's hard to know whether your situation is a true emergency or not. Dr. Shafer encourages our patients to call us first because we can help assess their condition over the phone and determine if they need immediate attention. Unfortunately, hospital emergency rooms are not equipped for tooth emergencies, so call your dentist in Gretna first.

Some of the dental emergencies we handle at Nola Dentures and General Dentistry are:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Dislodged or knocked-out teeth
  • Broken or lost dental restorations like fillings or crowns
  • Toothaches or dental pain
  • Infected or abscessed teeth
  • Cracked, damaged, or lost dentures
  • Bleeding or swelling in the mouth

If you or a loved one are experiencing dental pain or any of these situations, don't hesitate to call Nola Dentures and General Dentistry at (504) 392-5104.

Dr. Shafer will always discuss your options with you, explaining the procedures, costs, and recovery timeframes, so there are no surprises when planning and budgeting for your dental care.
