When you have no idea what to do and a sudden dental accident or change takes place, you may find yourself feeling quite shaken up. Fortunately, preventing any additional stress during a dental emergency is quite easy. You simply need to recognize two things: Number one, that we offer emergency dental care to address your needs when a mishap occurs. Number two, that you just need to become familiar with how to respond to an emergency, so you feel prepared should a less-than-desirable situation present itself.
Questions and Answers: Dental Emergencies
Question: What’s the first thing I should I do if I experience a dental emergency?
Answer: The most important step to take is to call our practice, so we can schedule an emergency visit to see you.
Question: Is there an easy way for me to decide if I’m experiencing a dental emergency, if I should wait to schedule a regular appointment, or if I need to go to the emergency room?
Answer: Yes, this is quite simple when you know how to think of emergencies. First, it’s a dental emergency if neglecting to seek treatment may threaten the health of your tooth or smile. Next, it’s a true medical emergency – not dental – if your life is in danger (such as extreme blood loss). Finally, you should only wait for a regular appointment if avoiding immediate care will not result in damage.
Question: Is it really that important for me to schedule an emergency dentistry appointment? I’m embarrassed to ask you to help me when I haven’t scheduled a regular appointment.
Answer: We offer emergency dental care because this is not an uncommon issue – a sudden trauma may occur when you don’t expect it and we want you to know you always have care within reach. Allow us to address dire problems immediately to prevent complications.
