How an Emergency Dentistry Office Can Help You

How an Emergency Dentistry Office Can Help You from Oro Valley Family Dentistry in Tucson, AZAn emergency dentist is a licensed dentist who focuses on treating dental emergencies, such as a chipped tooth, a loose tooth, a tooth knocked out of the socket, tooth infection, lost crown, and lost filling. This review closely examines how an emergency dentistry office can assist you.

The advantages of an emergency dentistry office

Emergency dentistry offices offer prompt treatment and specialized dental services. They help alleviate the initial symptoms after dental trauma or a fast-developing oral health concern to minimize overall discomfort and long-term effects. In addition, they also provide a recovery plan.

Fast treatment when you need it

Emergency dentistry offices provide prompt care after a dental emergency. On the other hand, most general dentists require an appointment in advance and do not offer emergency treatment. Therefore, when treatment of a dental injury or health concern is needed right away, an emergency dentist can help and should be who you call.

Specialized care and dental services

Emergency dentistry practices also provide specialized services to ensure they can adequately meet each patient's needs during a dental emergency. Common emergency dental services include dental restorations such as crowns and bonding and treating infections with a deep cleaning and antibiotics (among many other services).

Symptom alleviation (including pain)

Pain alleviation is often the main priority for patients who visit an emergency dentist. Emergency dentists can help with the initial symptoms such as gum swelling, bleeding, and pain. Treatment may involve thoroughly cleaning the affected area, placing gauze to control bleeding, and providing a pain reliever as a numbing agent or sedative. After the initial symptoms are under control, the emergency dentist can turn their attention to treating the underlying cause of the symptoms in an effort to minimize any long-term damage.

Can help prevent negative long-term effects

Another primary goal of emergency dentistry is to minimize the long-term impact of the patient's oral health concerns. For example, an emergency dentist may be able to save an avulsed tooth if the patient visits the office right away and properly preserves the tooth. Without emergency care, the same patient would have to replace the tooth entirely. Immediate care means that not only is the dental impact minimal in most cases, but emergency dentists often save the patient money and time as well.

Can provide a recovery plan to follow

Last but not least, the emergency dentist can help by providing a plan for a full recovery after they treat initial symptoms, diagnose the underlying cause, and start the treatment process. Depending on the type of treatment, future care may involve follow-up visits, referral to an oral surgeon, and other steps.
