Do you know how to get emergency dental care when you need it? A dental emergency usually happens when you’re least prepared for it. Suddenly and without warning, a searing pain in your tooth will leave you wondering, “Where can I find emergency dental care near me?”
When you need emergency dental care during regular business hours, our emergency dentists in Roxborough are here to help. Our emergency dental office can often schedule a same-day appointment, so you can get back to your life without pain. The goals of our approach to emergency dentistry are to quickly diagnose the problem, alleviate your painful symptoms, and provide the treatment that’s needed to solve the problem permanently.
Our emergency dental services provide two important benefits. They relieve your sudden and unexpected symptoms and they prevent minor dental conditions from becoming more serious due to delayed treatment. Listed below are examples of the urgent dental care services that we offer:
Any time that pain or dysfunction involving your teeth or gums affects your mood, concentration level, or daily routine is a good time to seek emergency dental care. Even if you have no pain, it’s important to treat dental problems before they get worse. Here are examples of common conditions that our dentists can treat on an urgent basis.
A tooth fracture or broken tooth should be addressed as soon as possible to prevent infection or worsening structural damage.
If you can get to us within an hour, our emergency dentists have a higher chance of reimplanting your knocked-out tooth. Before you arrive, be sure to treat your tooth with care. Rinse it with warm water to remove debris, and store it either inside its own socket or between your cheek and gums. Never touch the root of the tooth. Be sure to call us immediately for more specific instructions.
You should never ignore an intense toothache or postpone treatment. Call us for an emergency appointment, and remember to inform us of any additional symptoms that you’re having such as ear pain, fever, or swelling.
If a tooth that has never been sensitive before suddenly reacts to temperature, a fracture or infection may be to blame. Seek urgent dental care for tooth sensitivity that develops abruptly or for no obvious reason.
Tooth decay progresses slowly, but when a big cavity finally exposes sensitive nerves and tooth roots, you may experience significant pain and sensitivity. Contact our emergency dentists to schedule restorative treatment and relief from your discomfort.
An abscessed tooth develops when bacteria invades a tooth root or infects an area between teeth. Symptoms of this serious infection include severe, relentless toothaches, tooth sensitivity, swelling of your jaw or face, fever, chills, bad breath, unusual tastes, and pus-filled gum sores. Because an abscess can cause serious health problems if treatment is delayed, call our emergency dental office at once if you develop symptoms.
When you lose a filling or one becomes loose or unstable, it’s important to have it replaced quickly. Avoid getting food into the empty space, and call us to schedule a consultation as soon as possible.
Our emergency dentists can restore your smile and protect your teeth by replacing broken or lost crowns and restorations. Both permanent and temporary solutions are available.
When brackets break and wires poke at your sensitive oral tissues, we can help. We’ll relieve your pain, treat minor injuries, and adjust your orthodontic components to prevent ongoing discomfort.
Chronic bruxism or tooth grinding can cause severe damage to the enamel that protects your teeth. We can help strengthen your damaged tooth enamel and provide a nighttime appliance to help curb your grinding behaviors.
Sinus pressure isn’t always caused by a cold or sinus infection. In some cases, it may have a dental origin. Infection, impacted teeth, and other problems can create the same sensation. If you have unexplained and persistent sinus pressure, let our dentists rule out or treat any possible dental problems.
Some dental problems coincide with serious symptoms that indicate a need for advanced medical care that emergency dentists in Roxborough are unable to provide. If you’re experiencing any of the following, seek care at an emergency room or call 911 instead of contacting our emergency dentists:
The fees associated with emergency dental care are unique to each case. Your total cost will depend on what tests and treatments are needed to manage your condition and how much your dental insurance will cover. We accept major credit card payments and most dental plans, and there are also financing options available for your convenience. If you don’t have dental insurance, you can enjoy substantial savings by joining our DentRite® discount plan. It’s not an insurance policy, but it helps you save between 20 and 70 percent on many types of dental care, including emergency services. Contact us to learn more.
If your emergency is painful or could potentially affect your long-term dental health, don’t postpone your treatment. Visit your local emergency room or after-hours medical clinic. When business hours resume, our emergency dentists in Roxborough will be there to provide the follow-up care that you need.
