Why Choose Us for Your Emergency Dental Care
Emergency dental care should also be quality dental care. When emergency care is done poorly, it means increased risk of further emergency care down the road. We can offer quality, comfortable care at convenient times both day and night when you contact us. This includes completely digital x-rays and nitrous oxide and oral sedation available. Digital x-rays are more comfortable and convenient, plus they give us a clearer image of your dental emergency.
Emergency Sedation Dentistry
Nitrous oxide and oral sedation can allow you to overcome your anxiety of dental treatment today. This has allowed patients to receive all of their needed dental care rather than postpone it. Relaxation dentistry means you will have a positive dental experience, which can help you feel at ease with future dental treatments. With your increased comfort and trust, hopefully, you can get problems identified before they become emergencies.Emergency dentistry can still be quality dental care. The better treatment you get today, the better your oral health tomorrow and for the rest of your life.
Emergency Root Canal
If you have tooth pain that is simply unbearable, an emergency root canal may be your best treatment option. If the pain begins when you drink hot or cold liquid, or when you chew with a particular tooth, but persists and gets worse, a root canal may be called for. Other times, you may need a root canal after your dentist discovers the pulp chamber is compromised when placing a deep filling to prevent pain from starting. You may also need a root canal if you have severely broken a tooth, exposing the pulp chamber.
Even though the pain may be minimal at first, don’t wait to have injuries checked as the situation may become substantially worse and that may occur at a very inconvenient time.
Many patients fear having a tooth extraction, but sometimes it is necessary. If a patient has a tooth that is damaged beyond repair or decayed, they may need an emergency tooth extraction. When a tooth is causing significant pain to you, it is time to take it out. At Drs of Smiles, a tooth extraction no longer has to be a painful and stressful situation. With emergency sedation dentistry, we are able to help anxious patients have their teeth extracted.
Quality Emergency Dental Care
During an emergency root canal, the main concern is timeliness: getting the procedure completed now so you can begin getting over the excruciating discomfort of the abscessed tooth and begin recovery. But that doesn’t mean you should sacrifice quality. After all, a poorly done root canal is likely to need to be redone later, and that is the last thing you want.
Our digital x-rays have superior resolution to conventional x-ray films, which helps us better determine the extent of your problem and plan successful emergency treatment from the get-go. Digital x-rays make it easier to determine whether your teeth have multiple roots or canals that need to be drained and sealed before the tooth is crowned. Undetected extra canals are a leading cause of the need to retreat root canals..
Comfortable Emergency Dentistry
Emergency root canals are often the product of dental anxiety. If you put off normal dental treatment until it became an emergency, your anxiety doesn’t go away just because you need treatment now. We offer nitrous oxide gas and oral sedation to help you overcome any anxiety you may have about have the “dreaded” root canal. (Amazingly, they are almost totally pain-free as so many of our patients testify–trust us!)
Relaxation dentistry also means that you can get the emergency and regular dental care you need in the most comfortable way possible. Some of our patients even report that experience with relaxation dentistry makes future visits easier and more relaxing, even without nitrous or oral sedation.
