What are some of the more common Dental Emergencies?
We see a number of different dental emergencies on any given day. For this reason, we recommend coming in to be seen whenever you notice something is wrong. Some of the more common emergencies include,
- Severe toothache and pain
- Abscessing and infections
- Broken or cracked teeth
- Lost fillings, crowns or bridge work
- Broken or lost appliances (dentures, night guards)
What can be expected while undergoing Dental Emergency treatment?
The first thing we'll do is to ask you about the problem you're currently experiencing. This allows us to see if an x-ray is necessary and if it is, we will work to take one quickly and easily. We examine the x-ray and your teeth to determine the root cause of the actual problem. You will then have treatment administered while you're in the office, as this helps to prevent the problem from getting worse. We will prescribe antibiotics if there is an active infection present at the time of your appointment.
If you think you might have an emergency and want to come in to see someone, call our office today and our helpful staff members can further assist you.
