If you or any member of your family is experiencing pain because of an injury or other dental issue, you may need the services of an emergency dental clinic to resolve your problem quickly. Our dentists can identify the source of your problem and provide you with options designed to deal with it quickly and effectively.
Emergency Dental Care
Emergency dental care is different from routine care primarily in the urgency of the treatment needed. Our dentists are experienced in providing emergency treatments for a wide range of serious conditions.
Where Can I Find Fast Emergency Dental Care?
Our emergency dental clinic can provide you with same-day appointments or walk-in treatments to help you resolve your dental issues quickly and effectively. We work with you to provide solutions for injuries, infections and other dental conditions.
What Will My Dental Care Cost?
The price you will pay for your dental care with our emergency dental clinic will vary depending on a few factors that include the severity of your condition, the number of teeth involved and the procedures required to restore your teeth. We will work with you to keep your costs as low as possible for the treatments you receive from us.
Emergency Dental Services
Cosmetic procedures, teeth cleaning and routine examinations are not considered to be emergencies and are not usually available on an emergency basis from our clinic.
What Services Are Available from Emergency Dentists?
We offer a full range of services to restore teeth to a healthy, pre-emergency state. Some of the most commonly requested services we offer include the following:
Root Canals: Root canals involve the removal of infected tissue from the pulp and the roots of the tooth. These procedures can eliminate pain to help you get back to your regular routine.
Root Canals for Children: Our skilled dentists can provide safe and effective root canal options for children as well as adults.
Emergency Tooth Extractions: Severely damaged or decayed teeth may no longer be viable. We can extract these teeth and provide you with options for replacing them.
Tooth Extractions: Many times, a tooth can be extracted through a routine procedure. This is most likely to occur when placing dental devices.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Impacted wisdom teeth can put pressure on the surrounding molars that can result in severe pain. We can extract your wisdom teeth and relieve the associated pain quickly.
What Conditions Require the Help of an Emergency Dentist?
Some of the most common conditions we treat include the following:
Abscessed Teeth: Abscesses can cause swelling and discomfort. We can address the source of the infection to produce fast relief and to improve the health of your teeth and gums.
Cracked or Broken Teeth: Sharp impacts, gradual decay and repeated stress can cause cracking, chipping or breaking of your teeth. Call our office today to schedule your appointment today.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: If you are experiencing swelling in your gums or face, we can help by treating the underlying cause of this issue. Our dentists will work hard to help you feel better quickly.
Severe Toothaches: Toothaches can prevent you from taking on the challenges of your everyday life and indicate a problem with your dental health.
Fractured Jaws: If your jaw has been fractured in an accident, call us right away to prevent misaligned teeth and damage to your bite.
Loose, Broken or Lost Crowns: Dental crowns provide support for damaged or fragile teeth. If you have a loose or damaged crown, see us as quickly as possible to prevent further damage to your tooth.
Dental Infections: An infection can cause pain and swelling and may even move to other parts of your body. Immediate treatment is necessary to prevent the spread of these serious conditions.
Knocked-Out Teeth: If you have lost an entire tooth due to a severe impact, we recommend placing the tooth in a glass of cold milk and heading to our office. In some cases, we can save the tooth and place it back in its socket so that it can heal in place.
Loose or Lost Fillings: A loose filling can be annoying and even dangerous as it allows bacteria to enter the uncovered cavity. Call us right away if you have lost a filling or if your fillings are loose.
How Can I Lower the Cost of Emergency Dental Services?
One of the best ways to reduce the price you pay for routine and emergency services at our dental practice is to participate in the MetroCare Dental Plan. For a low cost of $129 a year, you can save between 20 and 80 percent on the regular prices of treatment. This plan works along with your regular insurance and can save you money even if you do not currently have a dental insurance plan. Call us to learn more about this plan and how it can reduce the amount you pay for dental care.
