When Do You Need Urgent Dental Care?
A common question our patients ask is when they should seek emergency dentistry. There are a couple of situations in which you need to see a dentist rather than an urgent care facility or emergency room. Below are some of the most common times when you should visit our office for immediate or urgent dental care:
- A permanent tooth was knocked out of the mouth
- A permanent tooth is fractured or broken
- The tongue was bitten, and you cannot control the swelling and bleeding
- The jaw is fractured or broken
- There is severe oral pain that restricts regular activities like eating, drinking, chewing and speaking
In these situations, you cannot wait for a delayed appointment to get treatment because there is a ‘time limit.’ This time limit refers to how long you have before the situation worsens and can cause permanent damage, which we may be unable to repair.
Do You Need Emergency Dental Care?
At Creative Dentistry & Medspa, we do not deny people treatment in emergency situations. It is part of our role as healthcare providers to help you recover and return to optimal oral health and wellness. This means we can work with children, teenagers and adults from all walks of life in most cases.
If you need assistance in an emergency situation, don’t hesitate. Come directly to our office without scheduling an appointment, you can call ahead for directions or to let us know you are coming. If you are bleeding, use paper towels to control the flow. If you have lost a tooth, try to find it and bring it with you. We might be able to reinsert it and save the tooth.
