What are Dental Emergencies?
A dental emergency can occur at any time and leave you in pain and feeling incredibly frustrated. Even with the very best dental care and routine trips into the dentist, an emergency can still occur. We offer high-quality emergency care to both new and existing patients who are coming into our office. We understand that an emergency can be a difficult and scary time for you, so we aim to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.
Why is treatment of Dental Emergencies needed?
If you ignore a dental emergency, the problem can and will eventually get worse. The problem that a lot of people have is that they assume the issue will go away on its own. Dental problems rarely resolve themselves, so it is important to consider coming in for treatment as soon as you notice there’s a problem. We will work with you to provide treatment in a convenient and timely manner.
What are some common Dental Emergencies?
We see many dental emergencies on a routine basis, and we’re happy to provide you the care that you need. Some of these emergencies include:
- Pain and severe toothache
- Abscessing and infections
- Broken, cracked or fractured teeth
- Broken or cracked appliances and restorations
- Bleeding, inflamed gums
- Post-operative complications
What can you expect during Dental Emergency treatment?
Dental emergency treatment involves coming in and being seated comfortably in one of our exam rooms. We will ask you about the problem and take x-rays as needed. The doctor then performs an exam to help in identifying the problem. If there is an active infection, we will normally prescribe antibiotics before treatment is started. This helps to clear away the infection before we begin work on the tooth or area. Emergency treatment is done comfortably in our office for patients of all ages and varying needs. Our goal is to improve your time with us and create the relaxing atmosphere that you’ve been looking for in a dental office.
If you are experiencing an emergency, call us today so that we can get you in as soon as possible for care.
