When to See an Emergency Dentist
When you have an injury or damage to your lips, gums, teeth, or jaw, it is important to call our office right away. We can help you determine how quickly to come in, suggest methods to relieve tooth pain, and offer tips on how to preserve your tooth or dental restoration until you arrive at our facility. Common dental emergencies we treat include:
- Dental abscesses
- Broken or cracked teeth
- Damaged or dislodged fillings or crowns
- Knocked-out teeth or restorations
- Broken dentures or dental bridges
- Soft tissue injuries (to the gums, lips, cheeks, or tongue)
If trauma to the head, face, jaw, or neck occurs, please seek immediate treatment at the emergency room. Our team will work with you to meet your dental needs once your general health is stable.
What To Expect During Your Visit
Since each dental emergency that we treat is unique, our emergency dentists will thoroughly assess your mouth to evaluate your treatment needs. However, our primary goal will be to relieve any discomfort and restore your oral health and appearance as quickly as possible. Digital x-rays or 3D imaging may be utilized to screen for hidden damage within the teeth or jaw. Even minor injuries may lead to larger conditions if not handled promptly; therefore, it is best to err on the side of caution and seek emergency dental care right away. Once we understand the degree of your condition, our team will talk to you about your options and develop your treatment plan.
Recovery Following Dental Emergencies
While we will do our best to complete your care during your emergency visit, there may be some instances where follow-up visits are necessary. Our team will provide post-treatment instructions to follow as you recover and may prescribe pain medication or antibiotics, which should be used as directed. Tips on preventing potential injuries in the future may also be discussed, such as wearing a custom athletic mouth guard during sports. Keeping up with good oral hygiene each day can also help your teeth and gums remain strong and healthy. During your routine dental exams at ACE Dental, we will continue to monitor your recovery progress.
Insurance Coverage for Urgent Dental Care
Dental emergencies are stressful enough without having to worry about financial concerns. If you carry insurance, our team will work to maximize your coverage to help minimize any personal expenses. ACE Dental accepts a number of payment solutions and can help you apply for low-interest financing to make your treatment more affordable. Please do not delay treating a dental emergency due to concerns over cost since waiting could lead to more serious health conditions.
