Emergency Dental Services: A Critical Part of Your Dental Care

Emergency dental services are treatments provided by professional dentists when sudden and severe dental conditions interrupt their patients’ lives. Without access to urgent dental care, many people would suffer much longer than necessary and might even develop avoidable complications. Here are a few valuable emergency services that our dentists provide:

  • Toothache diagnosis, treatment, and pain management
  • Repair of cracked and chipped teeth
  • Treatment of pain and swelling caused by wisdom tooth impaction
  • Emergency tooth extraction
  • Restoration of lost dental crowns and fillings
  • Treatment of pain caused by malfunctioning orthodontic appliances
  • Management of dental infections

Signs That It’s Time for Emergency Dental Treatment

When should I seek emergency dental care near me?

Any condition that is causing pain or affecting your daily life warrants emergency dental care. The following are examples of conditions that our emergency dentists treat frequently.

Broken or Fractured Teeth

To prevent additional damage, it’s essential to repair broken or fractured teeth as soon as possible. If your broken tooth has sharp edges, cover them with dental wax until you can arrange an appointment.

Knocked-Out Teeth

A knocked-out tooth is an emergency that requires swift action. Our emergency dentists may be able to save the tooth if we can see you within an hour or so after the accident. Before you panic, always remember to touch your tooth only by its crown when handling it. Rinse it using lukewarm water, and store it either in its original socket or the side of your mouth in order to keep it moist. Call us immediately for further advice.

Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure

A severe toothache may arise from tooth decay, injury, or infection. Treatment should never be delayed, especially if other symptoms such as fever, swelling, or ear pain are also present. Contact our office to schedule an urgent evaluation of your tooth pain.

Severe Tooth Sensitivity

When severe tooth sensitivity appears suddenly or for no apparent reason, an urgent dental care evaluation is warranted. Sensitivity may have a benign cause, but it could also signal a tooth fracture or another serious problem.

Dental Decay

Dental decay gradually destroys the structure of teeth until sensitive nerve tissues and roots are exposed. At this point, our emergency dentists provide pain relief and determine what type of restorative treatments are needed to rebuild your tooth.

Abscessed Tooth

An abscessed tooth usually begins as a bacterial invasion of the tooth root. If you have an abscess, it’s extremely important to contact our emergency dental office right away to schedule treatment. Untreated, a dental abscess can lead to serious health complications. Symptoms of a tooth abscess include swelling of the face or jaw, intense tooth pain, sensitivity to temperature, swollen glands in the neck, fever, mouth odor, and draining gum sores.

Lost or Loose Fillings

When you lose a filling or it becomes loose, you may experience pain and sensitivity, and your tooth is at a higher risk for decay and collapse. Don’t delay your treatment; schedule an urgent appointment so that we can replace your filling and get your eating habits back to normal.

Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations

A broken crown or lost restoration affects your self-esteem as well as your dental health. Our emergency dentists fashion both temporary and long-term replacements for restorations to keep your smile beautiful and your teeth healthy.

Orthodontic Pain or Injuries

Orthodontic brackets and wires don’t always perform perfectly. When a bracket breaks or a wire cuts into your mouth, we can help by relieving your pain and adjusting your orthodontic device to prevent future offenses.

Enamel Damage from Teeth Grinding

Grinding your teeth places a lot of stress on your tooth enamel. If you notice a change in how your teeth’s chewing surfaces look, your enamel may have suffered significant damage. Our dentists can reinforce enamel to strengthen your teeth and provide a night guard device to curb damage caused by your nighttime grinding habit.

Sinus Pressure

A complex relationship between dental health and sinus cavities can make diagnosing some conditions difficult. If you have unexplained sinus pressure, we can help by investigating your symptoms to determine if there is a dental origin.

Dangerous Symptoms: When to Seek Advanced Care

A serious head injury knocked my tooth out. Should I contact the emergency dental office near me?

Your dental health is important, but if you have symptoms or an injury that threatens your general health, treating it should be your top priority. Our emergency dentists in Thorndale recommend going to a hospital emergency room or calling 911 if you experience any condition that involves severe bleeding, severe swelling, or a significant injury to your head, jaw, or face.

Estimating Dental Emergency Visit Fees

Until our emergency dentists can perform an examination, it’s impossible to predict how much your emergency dental care will cost. However, if you have concerns about your bill, it may ease your mind to know that we provide several options. We accept most insurance plans, and you can pay your bill with a major credit card. For patients with tight budgets, we offer convenient financing programs. If you don’t have dental insurance, you can reduce your overall cost by becoming a member of our DentRite® discount plan. It’s not an insurance plan, but it provides hefty savings on the dental services that you need most. Everyone qualifies, and there are no usage restrictions. Contact our office for more information.

The emergency dental office near me won’t be open until tomorrow. Should I delay my treatment or go to the hospital?

If you have a minor problem, it may be safe to wait until morning. However, if you’re in severe pain or you’re not certain of how serious your emergency is, the safest choice is to protect your dental health and seek care at a hospital emergency room or after-hours clinic. When a dental crisis occurs during business hours, please call our office. Our emergency dentists in Thorndale will be available and ready to provide the care that you need.
