Emergency Dental Care
When you have a dental emergency, we can provide quick, expert care.
What is emergency dental care?
Emergency dental care refers to the immediate treatment provided to individuals who are experiencing severe dental pain, trauma, or other urgent dental issues. These emergencies may include severe toothaches, broken or knocked-out teeth, abscesses, or dental infections. Prompt intervention by a qualified dentist is crucial to relieve pain, prevent further complications, and preserve oral health.
Some common emergency dental procedures include:
- Tooth extraction: If a tooth is severely damaged or infected and cannot be saved, extraction may be necessary to alleviate pain and prevent the spread of infection.
- Dental filling or crown placement: For teeth with severe decay or damage, a dental filling or crown may be needed to restore the tooth's structure and function.
- Root canal treatment: This procedure is performed to remove infected pulp from the tooth and alleviate pain caused by an abscess or deep decay.
When should I seek emergency dental care?
You should seek emergency dental care if you experience severe tooth pain that does not go away or worsens over time. Other situations that require immediate attention include a knocked-out tooth, a broken tooth with sharp edges that can cause injury, or a dental abscess accompanied by swelling and fever. It is important to contact a dentist as soon as possible to receive prompt treatment and prevent further complications.
