Every day, hundreds of dental emergencies occur throughout the land. From sporting accidents resulting in mouth trauma to a toothache with severe pain, dental emergencies require a fast response.
Though many people may make the trip to the nearest hospital when facing dental trauma, the truth is few hospitals are equipped to adequately handle a true dental emergency. In many cases, the patient is given medication for pain and told to see a dentist as soon as possible. With Family Smiles Dental, you can skip the ER and give us a call.
Some dental emergencies require immediate treatment in order to prevent the problem from becoming worse. For example, an abscessed tooth can produce excruciating pain. It can also lead to sepsis if the infection from the tooth gets into the bloodstream. Relieving the pain and discomfort is important, and addressing the infection is even more critical.
We provide emergency dentistry in the comfort of our office. Your dental emergency will be handled with skill and compassion, as well as with all the proper instruments. You can expect the best outcome when our expertise is applied to your dental emergency.
Urgent Dental Care
An infected tooth can cause swelling and disabling pain. Urgent dental care will alleviate the pain and reduce the risk of infection or begin treatment of an existing infection. Severe pain can have other causes as well, such as the pain caused by an impacted wisdom tooth. Post-operative complications, such as dry socket, can also cause serious pain.
Some urgent dental situations can only be addressed in the dental office. A broken denture needs immediate attention. Adjustments for dentures that are causing sore spots and interfering with eating also require attention that may not be able to be put off for long.
At Family Smiles Dental, we understand the nature of dental emergencies. We want our patients to trust that we can provide the dental care you need when you need it. When you have a dental emergency, contact our office right away, and we will see you as soon as possible.
