What are Dental Emergencies?
If you have a dental-related emergency, it can be difficult to get through with life without living in pain or discomfort. You might have tried a wide range of at-home remedies to try to alleviate the pain, but you know you need immediate professional care. We offer emergency care to patients of all ages and varying needs. In fact, we even welcome new patients into our office who are dealing with emergencies and need help.
Why is treatment of Dental Emergencies necessary?
If you ignore a dental problem, it can and will eventually get worse. Unfortunately, teeth will not repair themselves and the pain you’re experiencing can get in the way of living your life. For this reason, we recommend that patients come into our office for care as soon as they notice there is a problem. By coming in for quality treatment, you can be sure that the issue won’t get worse and you can get back to your busy lifestyle.
What are some of the more common Dental Emergencies?
We see a wide range of different emergencies on a regular basis. These emergencies may seem more minor, while others are more drastic requiring immediate attention. Some of these emergencies include:
- Pain and severe toothache
- Infections and abscesses
- Wisdom tooth pain
- Broken or cracked teeth
- Broken or cracked restorations and appliances
- Bleeding, swollen or painful gums
What can be expected during Dental Emergency treatment?
The emergency appointment begins by having you sit comfortably in one of our operatories. This allows us to ask you about the problem and what you’re dealing with at the moment. From there, we will take x-rays to further identify the issue and to provide you with the treatment that is best suited to you. If you have an infection, we will prescribe you an antibiotic before any treatment is started. We aim to get you leaving the office pain-free and comfortable. We work on patients of all ages and needs, so we welcome any member of your family to come into our office for emergency treatment.
