Emergency Dental Services
What Is Considered Emergency Dental Services?
Emergency dental services vary widely. We provide a full range of emergency dental treatments in order to improve your oral health. Here are a few of the emergency dental services offered at our emergency dental clinic:
Emergency Extractions: Saving your natural teeth is always our goal, but sometimes a tooth needs to be extracted to restore your oral health. Rest assured that we’ll use anesthesia and other approved techniques to keep you as comfortable as possible during the extraction.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Many young adults experience pain or get an infection when their wisdom teeth come in. If these newly erupted teeth are causing an infection or discomfort, they may require an emergency extraction.
Root Canals: When your tooth’s pulp is inflamed or infected, your tooth’s health and comfort can be improved by receiving a straightforward root canal procedure.
Root Canals for Children: When it’s important to save a child’s natural teeth, our experienced dentists can perform root canal therapy.
Tooth Extractions: Sometimes, the only remedy for an injured or decayed tooth is an extraction. As with our emergency extractions, we strive to keep you comfortable throughout this routine tooth extraction procedure.
When Should I Call for Emergency Dental Services?
You should seek urgent dental care if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms or conditions:
Abscessed Teeth: An abscess, marked by facial or gum swelling, extreme dental pain, a fever or oozing gums, needs immediate care. Call our office right away if you are experiencing any of these symptoms or think you have an abscessed tooth.
Broken or Fractured Jaws: Broken jaws require emergency care. If your bite suddenly feels different or crooked, or if you have pain in your face or jaw, call our emergency dental clinic immediately.
Broken, Loose or Lost Crowns: An infection or decay can settle into a tooth that has a missing, loose or broken crown. Visit our office to have your crown replaced and your smile restored.
Cracked or Broken Teeth: A damaged tooth is prone to infection and further damage, but thankfully our experienced dentists can work to restore your tooth and preserve your oral health.
Dental Infections: Proper and frequent dental cleanings can often prevent dental infections, but once infection sets in along your gum lines or in the pulp of your tooth, immediate treatment is needed. Contact our office if you think you may have a dental infection.
Knocked-out Teeth: After a tooth has been knocked out, quick action may save your tooth. Try to place the tooth back in its socket or place it in a container with cold milk. Then, call our office for emergency dental help.
Loose or Lost Fillings: Teeth need to be intact to fight infection and resist decay. A lost or loose filling exposes your tooth to damage. Your dentist can replace your filling to restore your tooth’s protection against cavities.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: Never ignore severe facial or gum swelling as it can be a symptom of a serious health issue. Your dentist will examine your oral health, determine the cause of the swelling and provide treatment to get your oral health back on track.
Severe Toothaches: Throbbing, persistent tooth pain can be a symptom of a dental issue and should be evaluated by a dentist. Visit our dentists to relieve your pain and treat the root cause of your pain.
