Fast, Effective, & Trustworthy Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies might occasionally happen, and in our office, we’ll do everything in our power to take care of your problem as soon as possible. Whether you need a simple dental filling or a more complex procedure, we can assist you. If the problem arises after hours, our answering service will communicate your message to our dentists.
The two biggest reasons why our patients contact the dentist in an emergency are accidents and toothaches. An injury or an infection might cause a toothache. If you are having tooth pain, please call us right away. As soon as we can, we’ll see you to evaluate the situation and decide how to make things better.
A tooth that has been knocked out or fractured is the most serious dental emergency. Visit a dentist as soon as you can if your tooth has been accidentally knocked out in order to save it. Before you go to the dentist, you can take steps to preserve your tooth. These include gently attempting to reinstall it in its socket, keeping it between your gums and lip, putting it in a glass of milk, or putting it in an ADA-approved tooth preservation kit. If your dental emergency puts your life in danger, you should go to the emergency department.
What To Do In Case Of A Dental Emergency?
Even if you have never been to our office before, we are happy to help you during a dental emergency. Please contact us immediately if you are in urgent need of care.
Preventing Dental Emergencies
To prevent such dental crises, you can take a few precautionary preventative measures. The most important piece of advice we can offer is to respect and take proper care of your teeth. You only get one set of permanent teeth! By giving up hazardous behaviors like biting your nails or chewing on pens and other non-edible items, future dental tragedies can be considerably prevented.
Altering your diet can also lengthen the life of your teeth. Eating hard, sticky candies or ice is hard on your teeth and can wear them down or even make them loose. If chewing certain meals takes extra effort, it’s usually best to avoid them.
Athletes and small children should always use protective mouthguards when exercising. These can be purchased through a dentist or from a retailer. To ensure that your mouthguard fits properly and is most effective at preventing injuries, have your dentist check it thoroughly. Even little tooth movements may affect how well your mouthguard fits.
The dentist can typically manufacture a sports mouthguard that is more comfortable and protective if you’re having issues with one you purchased from a store. After all, a mouthguard that fits well will be worn more frequently! Make it a routine to bring your mouthguard to each dental visit in case it needs adjusting.
Keeping these tips in mind can save you a lifetime of dental visits & expenses. We’re happy to care for you during a dental emergency, but we’d prefer you avoid one in the first place!
