What To Do If You Have a Dental Emergency
- Posted on: Dec 15 2018
We can’t predict when a tooth will chip, when a traumatic dental injury will happen, or if a tooth will suddenly cause you severe pain. At Drs of Smiles, we can help you with all of these dental emergencies. A dental emergency is when a dental problem requires immediate attention to stop pain or further damage to your dental health. In some situations, procrastinating getting a dental emergency addressed can lead to further injury or even hospitalization. Choosing to get immediate care can make a major difference in your recovery and the health of your teeth. For this reason, Drs of Smiles is available help you after normal office hours. Just call us at 480-834-6991.
What Drs of Smiles Can Do For You
At Drs of Smiles, we can fix major and minor cosmetic dental issues, repair sports or work related injuries (like loose teeth), conduct a tooth canal, extract a tooth, address any TMJ pain and injuries, repair broken or chipped teeth, refill lost fillings, provide full treatment for lesions, and provide reconstruction of gums or teeth.
Even in times of emergency, your dental care should be top quality. At Drs of Smiles, we provide efficient and excellent care for all of our patients, even in emergencies when time is of the essence. We also provide sedation dentistry to help alleviate your nervousness or anxiety when getting treatment. An emergency visit, like a day time visit, will include all of the same procedures as a day time visit including dental X-rays. X-rays will provide your dentist with a more precise and clear understanding of the problem at hand. The quality of treatment you receive in an emergency situation will dictate how you heal and if further problems arise down the road.
Root Canals: A Common Dental Emergency
For a root canal, the pain may be so intense that you require an emergency appointment to relieve the pain. If you feel sensitivity or pain on a particular tooth that when you drink hot or cold liquids, but it doesn’t go away, you might require a root canal.
