We Keep You Calm & Comfortable During Your Emergency

Because Dr. Scott Watterson has been practicing dentistry nearly 20 years, he’s had plenty of experience in dealing with dental emergencies. On top of his dentistry experience, Dr. Watterson also received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the notable University of Michigan School of Dentistry.

Similarly, our team of dental assistants has a combined 50-plus years of experience.

In addition to our veteran team, we ensure your comfort with:

How We Handle Common Dental Emergencies

Some common dental emergencies:

  • Knocked-out tooth. If we can’t reinsert your tooth into its socket, we may suggest a dental implant or a dental bridge to replace it. We’ll thoroughly numb your mouth for the procedure.
  • Broken tooth. We can usually repair a cracked or broken tooth with a dental crown. Thanks to our CEREC technology, we can make a same-day crown for you in our Jackson, MI dentist office. If the damage is too extensive, we’ll gently extract your tooth.
  • Toothache. If a cavity is causing your toothache, we’ll remove the decay and place a tooth-colored filling. If your tooth is infected, we can perform a root canal.

In a dental emergency, call Watterson Family Dentistry in Jackson, MI at 517-888-0021. For less urgent requests, you can use our online form.
