During your appointment, the dentist will assess your condition and will discuss with you your treatment plan and anticipated costs.
Emergency Dental Services
What Is Emergency Dental Care?
If you experience a dental emergency, our dentists in Hausman can provide the treatment you need to relieve your painful symptoms and restore the health of your mouth.
Emergency Extractions: An emergency extraction is recommended when the tooth is too badly damaged or decayed and can’t be saved with treatment. When you come in for your appointment, our dentists will make the extraction process as painless as possible.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Your wisdom teeth are typically the last set of teeth to emerge, and they can also cause problems that require emergency removal. If your wisdom teeth are causing pain and discomfort, we encourage you to call our office right away to schedule an appointment.
Root Canals: Root canal surgery is one of the most commonly performed dental procedures. To save the affected tooth, the damaged and infected pulp is removed, so you no longer feel any discomfort or sensitivity.
Root Canals for Children: If your child has an unexplained toothache or is showing symptoms of an infected tooth, please call us to schedule an appointment. Root canal therapy for children can preserve the child’s natural teeth and immediately relieve pain and discomfort.
Tooth Extractions: Many tooth extractions consist of a simple, routine procedure to remove the damaged or decayed tooth, often in a shorter time that you’d expect.
When Should I Receive Emergency Dental Services?
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms or conditions, you should contact your emergency dentist:
Abscessed Teeth: Signs of a dental abscess include severe jaw pain, swollen gums and a fever. An abscess is an urgent dental emergency, so if you have any of these symptoms, please contact your local emergency dentist for treatment.
Broken or Cracked Teeth: Teeth that are cracked or broken can rapidly become infected. If you have suffered damage to one or more of your teeth, please contact us to make an appointment.
Broken or Fractured Jaws: A severe facial injury can break or fracture your jaw, causing intense pain and a misaligned bite. Please contact one of our dentists as soon as possible if you have a broken or fractured jaw.
Broken, Loose or Lost Crowns: Your tooth is susceptible to decay when a crown is broken, loose or lost. For a complete restoration that can relieve your symptoms and restore your smile, contact your local emergency dentist.
Dental Infections: When you don’t receive professional cleanings regularly, plaque and bacteria can accumulate in your gum line, causing an infection. Our dentists can treat your current infection and provide information about how to prevent them in the future.
Knocked-out Teeth: Knocking out a tooth can be very distressing, but it’s possible for your emergency dentist to save your tooth. In the meantime, we recommend trying to place the tooth back in its socket, or put it in a cup of milk to keep it moist.
Loose or Lost Fillings: Your tooth is vulnerable to decay when a filling becomes lost or loose. Contact your local dentist for a replacement filling.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: If your face or gums become swollen, it could be an indication of a serious dental problem. For an evaluation as soon as possible, we encourage you to contact your emergency dentist.
Severe Toothaches: If you have a persistent, severe toothache, you should seek prompt treatment instead of waiting for the pain to resolve on its own. Contact our office for an appointment with one of our dentists.
Are Emergency Dental Services Costly?
When you’re faced with a dental emergency, you may have questions concerning finances and your payment options. To make sure that you receive the benefits offered by your insurance plan, we will always work with your provider. We are also a preferred provider of MetroCare, a dental plan that makes many dental procedures and treatments more affordable. For a fee of $129 a year, members of the MetroCare Dental Plan can save between 20 and 80 percent on the dental services they receive. MetroCare is a great option for anyone without dental insurance, and it can also be used to supplement your existing coverage. Our knowledgeable staff is available to answer any questions you many have about MetroCare. Contact us for more information.
