What Is An Emergency Dentist?
An emergency dentist offers emergency oral care. It means that Dr. Niki & Dr. Amy at Euclid Dental Center provide urgent care to patients who cannot make same-day appointments with their regular dentist. Essentially, it is dental care when you need it most.
Perhaps you have severe pain from tooth decay on the weekend or in the middle of the night. There may be an accident during a holiday when businesses are closed, and you desperately need root canal therapy or other treatment to address the pain as soon as possible. These are the perfect occasions and the objective of emergency dentistry.
An emergency dentist quickly diagnoses and determines the gravity of the issue and treats you accordingly. There are just times in life when urgent dental care is needed, and an emergency dentist is who you need to contact.
What Is Considered A Dental Emergency?
Dental emergencies are any incident involving your mouth that requires immediate medical attention. Common dental emergencies are severe pain or bleeding. It is also considered an emergency if you have knocked out a tooth or knocked it loose.
Infections that cause severe pain and swelling can eventually lead to an abscess and possibly be life-threatening. If this occurs, you should immediately call Euclid Dental Center. We ensure that your immediate dental issues do not turn into lifelong problems.
If You Break Or Chip Your Tooth, Please Remember To:
– Rinse with warm water
– Apply constant pressure to stop any bleeding
– Preserve the broken tooth in milk, saline, water, or saliva
– Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling and pain
– Take an over-the-counter painkiller
– Call an emergency dentist asap
Dental procedures for broken or chipped teeth vary from case to case. Our doctors will discuss the options available in your situation. The best thing you can do to save a broken tooth is to see an emergency dentist.
What Should I Expext In An Emergency Dentist Appointment?
Before the dentist can do anything, she must determine the problem.
Pain and any swelling and facial trauma affecting the teeth are treated. But that doesn’t mean that our doctors can completely fix the problem in only one appointment. The underlying issue may take an additional visit to fix. However, an emergency dentist provides a temporary solution and pain relief to buy you more time.
During emergency dental care, you may not be ready to make decisions about your treatment, dental insurance, and any costs involved. Do not worry; you can get pain relief now and make the decisions later.
