Accidents Happen—We Can Help
At Belle Meade Smile Center, we can help you with emergency dentistry and care to help teeth damaged by an accident, infection, or anything else.
Nashville Emergency Dentist
If you live in Nashville or the surrounding area, we encourage you to save our phone number, since there’s no telling when having (615) 292-4100 in your contact list could save you a trip to the emergency room.
If you leave a damaged or infected tooth alone, you will risk an infection spreading.

The most common issues that our team at Belle Meade Smile Center diagnoses and treats during emergency dental visits are:
- After Surgery Treatment (Dressing Change / Stitch Removal)
- Biopsy of Abnormal Tissue
- Broken or Knocked-Out Tooth
- Broken/Loose Braces
- Chipped/Broken Teeth
- Denture Adjustment for People Receiving Radiation or Other Cancer Treatment

Why Choose Belle Meade Smile Center Over the E.R.?
While the physicians at the emergency room are skilled at treating health emergencies, they are not familiar with dental care. They can triage any problem that you have by helping to stop the bleeding, but they will not be able to restore a damaged tooth.
Likewise, if you visit an emergency room to seek treatment for dental pain, they can provide you with pain relief but cannot find out what is causing the pain or work to solve it.
This is why you should visit Belle Meade Smile Center instead. Remember that even if you go to the emergency room, you will still likely need to visit the dentist anyway.
