Emergency Dentistry Q & A

Arcadia Dental Group

What is Emergency Dentistry?

A dental emergency is a critical dental problem that requires immediate attention and treatment to:

  • Alleviate severe pain
  • Stop gums or tissue from bleeding
  • Save a tooth

Critical oral or dental injuries can also involve damage to the jaw, lips, cheeks, and tongue. Such issues should be addressed by Dr. Patel as soon as possible to avoid complications, permanent damage (such as losing a tooth) and costly procedures.

When a patient is experiencing acute dental pain from dental damage or oral infection, they need relief fast — waiting for an appointment simply isn’t an option, and in many cases, it isn’t a safe choice. Emergency dentistry offers prompt attention to an urgent dental condition that shouldn’t be left untreated, even for a short time.

What are some examples of a dental emergency?

Dental conditions that should be treated immediately, include:

  • Cracked, broken, or loose teeth
  • Acute tooth, jawbone, or gum pain
  • A swollen jaw or gums
  • Painful cheeks, lips, or other oral tissue
  • Missing, loose, or broken fillings, crowns, or dental implants

How does the dentist treat emergency dental conditions?

Since certain dental issues can become more serious over time, damaged teeth and gums and sudden or worsening oral or dental pain should never be left untreated. These type of oral injuries and pain can be a sign of a serious infection that requires immediate medical treatment.  Depending on the severity of the condition, Dr. Patel may prescribe a combination of:

  • Antibiotics
  • Pain relievers
  • Tooth repair
  • Tooth extraction
  • Root canal therapy

Dr. Patel will prepare an individualized treatment plan for you designed to:

  • Provide immediate pain relief
  • Minimize or repair damage
  • Prevent potential complications or infection in the future

If you or anyone in your family is suffering from a dental emergency and needs fast, effective relief, call Arcadia Dental Group for a same-day appointment or book an appointment online today.
