Dental Emergencies

We know you can’t predict dental emergencies. After all, they don’t happen on a schedule! But we also know timing is critical. It can mean the difference between saving and losing a tooth.

So our dentists at both the Georgetown, SC and Murrells Inlet, SC locations make room in their schedules for same-day appointments for dental emergencies.

Got a dental emergency? Call The Smile Center at 843-492-5026 in Georgetown, SC or 843-491-5353 in Murrells Inlet, SC to book a same-day visit.

What We Can Do For Your Dental Emergency

With nearly 30 years in practice, Dr. John Miller has plenty of experience in dealing with dental emergencies! With our full range of dental services, from general dentistry to oral surgery, we’ll rarely need to send you to an outside specialist.

Here is how we handle some common dental emergencies:

  • Broken tooth. We can often repair a broken tooth with a dental crown. If there is not enough tooth left to save, we can gently extract it. Our tooth replacement options include dental bridges and dental implants.
  • Toothache. If your toothache is due to dental decay, we’ll remove the decay and place a tooth-colored filling to protect your tooth from further damage. If the decay has gotten into the center of your tooth, we’ll clean it all out with a root canal.

Dealing With Your Dental Anxiety

Even if you normally feel calm and collected at the dentist, an emergency can really bring out your dental anxiety! Fortunately, the capable teams at both of our locations know how to relax you with amenities including:

  • Cozy blankets
  • Pillows
  • TVs and headphones

And if you’re still feeling nervous, we also offer dental sedation.

Call The Smile Center at for help in handling your dental emergency. Call 843-492-5026 for our Georgetown, SC location or 843-491-5353 for our Murrells Inlet, SC location. In less time-critical situations, you can use our online form to make an appointment at either location.
