Emergency Dental Services
What Kind of Emergency Procedures Do You Offer?
Our dentists in Roanoke are able to perform several kinds of emergency procedures that will alleviate pain, infection and other dental problems. These services include:
Emergency Extractions: Whenever a tooth is too damaged or infected to save, our dentists will need to perform an emergency extraction. Our team will do everything possible to make the procedure comfortable for you. This includes using an anesthetic.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Wisdom teeth typically begin to grow in during late adolescence or early adulthood. Oftentimes, these teeth become impacted underneath the gums. This can cause extreme discomfort and may even lead to infection. In these cases, our dentists will recommend that the wisdom teeth be removed. Contact our office if you are in need of a wisdom tooth extraction.
Tooth Extractions: Broken, cracked or infected teeth may need to be removed from your mouth. Our dentists can perform these routine procedures.
Root Canals: Did you know that there is soft tissue beneath the hard enamel of your teeth? Occasionally, this tissue can become infected or inflamed. When this happens, the dentist will perform this common procedure to save your teeth and to eliminate any pain that your teeth may be causing you.
Root Canals for Children: In addition to providing routine root canals, our team is also able to perform the procedure on children.
When Should I Go to an Emergency Dental Clinic?
You may be wondering what conditions are considered to be dental emergencies. If you or a member of your family experience any of the following, contact our dentists in Roanoke as soon as you can:
Severe Toothache: If you are experiencing constant oral pain, do not put off treatment. One of our dentists can diagnose and treat your dental problem so that you don’t have to live with daily oral pain anymore.
Abscessed Teeth: This painful infection happens when the root of your tooth becomes infected. Common symptoms that you may experience when you have a tooth abscess include fever, oozing gums, swelling and more.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: Our emergency dental clinic can help you to diagnose what is causing your gums or face to swell. Once you have been diagnosed, your dentist will treat the source of the problem so that you can go back to living life without the discomfort caused by these conditions.
Broken or Cracked Teeth: A broken or cracked tooth can be an unsightly problem. It can also lead to infection and other long-term oral health issues. If you’ve injured one of your teeth in this manner, then contact us as soon as possible.
Lost or Loose Fillings: If you’ve ever had a filling for a cavity come loose or go missing, then you understand the kind of discomfort that is caused by this issue. Not only does it feel uncomfortable, but it can also lead to your tooth becoming further decayed. Our team of dentists in Roanoke can easily replace your filling in an emergency situation.
Fractured or Broken Jaw: This is a dental emergency that can result in a variety of serious long-term dental issues if left untreated. If you have injured your jaw and feel a lot of pain in the face or jaw, then call us immediately to pursue proper treatment.
Knocked-out Teeth: If you have ever knocked out a tooth, you probably remember feeling scared. The good news is that many dentists are able to save your tooth if you follow proper procedures before coming into the office. These procedures can include putting your tooth in cold milk or inserting the tooth back into its socket.
Broken, Lost or Loose Crowns: Another common dental emergency is having a crown fall off, break or become loose. If left untreated, your crownless tooth will be more likely to become damaged over time.
Dental Infections: Infections along the gum line are common when regular dental cleanings aren’t pursued. If your gums or teeth are infected, contact our clinic today. Our dentists can help you regain control of your oral health.
Are Emergency Dental Treatments More Expensive?
While treatment costs vary, there are a few ways that our clinic works to make emergency dental care affordable for our patients. We accept many forms of dental insurance. Our clinic is also a preferred provider with MetroCare. MetroCare is an affordable dental plan that is available to individuals for $129 per year. The plan provides deep discounts on routine and emergency procedures. It can be used along with your insurance or as a substitute to insurance. If you’re interested in purchasing a MetroCare plan, contact us for more information.
