Emergency Dental Services
What Type of Conditions Merit Emergency Dental Services?
Our dentists perform many different emergency dental treatments that can help to get your dental health back on track. The following is a list of a few of the emergency dental services offered at our dental clinic:
Emergency Extractions: Seriously decayed, injured or broken teeth may need to be extracted immediately. Removing the diseased tooth right away can relieve your pain and restore your good oral health.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Often, wisdom teeth present special challenges to young adults when the teeth emerge. These teeth can be prone to discomfort and infection, and they sometimes need to be removed right away. Your comfort throughout the procedure is important to us, so we use anesthesia and other techniques to ensure your wellbeing.
Root Canals: If your tooth is painful or the tooth’s surrounding gum tissue is swollen, root canal therapy may help alleviate the pain, eliminate the infection and preserve your tooth. If you’re experiencing severe pain or swelling, call us for an appointment right away.
Root Canals for Children: Root canal therapy can alleviate pain and infection, while safeguarding a child’s natural tooth. Our compassionate dentists are experienced in working with children and take care to keep the child comfortable throughout the treatment.
Tooth Extractions: While it’s always best to save natural teeth, severely damaged teeth may need to be removed. Often, we can schedule a routine tooth extraction in our office before the issue becomes an emergency.
What Makes Emergency Dental Services Necessary?
Seek emergency dental services if you experience any of the following conditions:
Abscessed Tooth: An abscess is an infection deep in the root of your tooth. It is a serious condition requiring immediate care. If you have severe facial or gum swelling, a fever or severe tooth pain, contact our office right away.
Broken or Cracked Teeth: A crack or break in a tooth jeopardizes the tooth’s health and strength. To avoid causing further damage to your tooth, call us for an appointment and treatment.
Broken or Fractured Jaws: There are several signs of a broken or fractured jaw, including severe pain, swelling, numbness or feeling as if your bite is crooked. Broken jaws should be treated immediately, so seek emergency treatment right away.
Broken, Loose or Lost Crowns: Broken, loose or missing crowns should be replaced right away to protect your tooth from further damage. Our dentist can replace the crown to restore and protect your smile.
Dental Infections: A lack of proper dental cleanings or at-home dental care can lead to infections near your gum line. Our dentists treat dental infections and will provide you with the information you need to prevent further infections.
Knocked-out Teeth: It’s startling and a little scary when your tooth is knocked out. Keep calm, place the tooth back in its socket and call us for emergency dental treatment. If you can’t place the tooth in its socket, store it in cold milk until your dental visit.
Loose or Lost Fillings: Dislodged or missing fillings should be replaced by your local dentist as soon as possible. Missing fillings can leave your tooth unguarded against further damage and infection, so call us right away for treatment.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: Painful swelling is a serious symptom that should be examined right away. Our dentists can diagnose the cause of your swelling and relieve your pain.
Severe Toothaches: When you have severe or persistent tooth pain, it should be addressed immediately by calling our office for urgent dental care. Not only will our emergency dentists relieve your discomfort, but they’ll diagnose the root issue and provide appropriate treatment.
