When Should A Dental Problem Be Considered An Emergency?

How serious should a problem be in order for you to receive emergency dental care? If a tooth is damaged, but not at risk of being lost, should you consider seeking urgent treatment? Your dentist offers emergency treatment to help you save a tooth at risk for being lost, and to address a situation causing pronounced discomfort. It should be noted that a tooth that is seriously chipped or cracked may be at risk for developing internal problems that jeopardize its overall well-being. In other words, a tooth does not have to be loose or avulsed to be potentially lost. You can reach out for emergency care when a problem arises, to make sure you receive the prompt treatment you need. 

Modern Dental Care Can Save Your Smile After An Emergency

Using modern dental materials, your dentist can provide restorative work that keeps your smile in good shape, even after your tooth is injured, or lost. If you need to address damage, a custom-made dental crown can be ready in a single day, so you can have the support you need for your injured tooth. Because these crowns are made with appearance-friendly ceramic, they can offer cosmetic benefits.

In a case where your tooth is lost, your dentist can talk to you about having an implant-supported prosthetic. Once you are approved for placement, they can recommend you to a specialist to have it put in position. After the proper healing occurs, you can return to have an attractive restoration secured to it.

Convenient Office Hours Make It Easier To Receive Care When You Need It

By making our office available during weekends and evenings, we create greater availability for patients. That can be important – after all, accidents can certainly happen outside of normal working hours! While we can work with you to set up care whenever you need, greater availability means you are more likely to reach out office during active hours.
