If you have a dental emergency, please call the office at 919-286-4481. Please note – for any life-threatening emergencies, please call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency room.
Dr. Gadol has emergency appointments available each day the office is open. If you are in significant pain, please call us so that we can take care of you immediately!
Usually in the event of a dental emergency, Dr Gadol will do a limited evaluation. This type of exam only focuses on an area of particular concern, such as an infected tooth. Typically, the staff will take a type of x-ray called a PA, which also focuses specifically on the problem area. After determining the cause of the problem, we can arrange the necessary treatment. Please note: While we will make every effort to provide such treatment as soon as possible, we may not be able to perform such treatment at the time of the examination.
Even if an emergency exam is necessary due to a sudden problem, we still strongly encourage a patient to return for a comprehensive evaluation. Many dental emergencies develop from long-standing problems that have gone undetected. Regular complete examinations help to detect and treat such problems when it is still possible to do so in a relatively painless and simple way.
