Emergency Dental Services
What Are Urgent Dental Services?
Our dentists offer urgent dental care to patients who need treatment to save a tooth or to stop their pain. Urgent dental care services we offer include:
Emergency Extractions: We would prefer to save a tooth with a filling or a root canal, but if one of our dentists has to extract the tooth, it will be as pain-free as possible.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Our emergency dentists can pull fully emerged wisdom teeth or wisdom teeth that are crowding other teeth. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
Root Canals: When the pulp inside your tooth is inflamed from an infection, it is painful. A root canal removes the diseased pulp, making your tooth feel much better.
Root Canals for Children: Saving a child’s baby tooth with a root canal is just as important as saving an adult’s permanent tooth. Baby teeth help a child learn to speak correctly and they help adult teeth to align correctly before they emerge. We have a gentle dentist who can perform a baby tooth root canal if necessary, with minimal discomfort for your child.
Tooth Extractions: Our skilled dentists will perform routine tooth extractions as well.
How Can I Tell if I Really Have a Dental Emergency?
Certain conditions are true emergencies, like the ones below. Hesitating to visit an emergency dental office could result in more harm to your oral health.
Abscessed Teeth: Do you have swollen gums and throbbing pain that you can’t seem to identify? These are symptoms of abscessed teeth, which need treatment by an emergency dentist.
Broken or Cracked Teeth: Broken or cracked teeth will break or crack more easily in their weakened state. If the nerve is exposed, it will cause significant pain. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
Broken or Fractured Jaws: There should be no doubt about whether a broken or fractured jaw is an emergency. Patients report a bite that feels “off” or inability to chew. Contact our office immediately for care.
Broken, Loose or Lost Crowns: Broken, loose or lost crowns need attention within one or two day so the tooth under the crown isn’t damaged.
Dental Infections: Severe dental infections can be a life-threatening problem. Call our office to schedule an appointment with an emergency dentist who will determine the extent of the infection and provide you with a prescription for antibiotics.
Knocked-out Teeth: Knocked-out teeth can sometimes be re-implanted if you contact us immediately. If you have the tooth, rinse it off and try to put it back in the socket. If you can’t get it into the socket, put the tooth in milk or under your tongue to keep it moist. Bring the tooth with you to our office.
Loose or Lost Fillings: One of our emergency dentists can replace your filling after determining that additional decay did not make the filling fall out.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: If you have swelling in your mouth or your face is swelling, you have a dental emergency. Contact our office to schedule an appointment with our emergency dentist, who will find the reason for the swelling.
Severe Toothaches: You don’t have to live with persistent tooth pain, contact our urgent dental care office to arrange an appointment for pain relief.
Are Urgent Dental Care Services Expensive?
We try to keep our emergency dental clinic costs affordable. If you have dental insurance, our staff will make sure that you receive your maximum benefit. Even with dental insurance, emergency dental care is a hardship for some of our patients. We are a MetroCare Dental Plan preferred provider. The plan saves patients between 20 to 80 percent on dental care and can be used in conjunction with dental insurance, or on its own. Contact our office to learn more about the MetroCare Dental Plan.
