Dental emergencies can be overwhelming and alarming because most individuals are not taught what to do in these situations. Armed with the basic principles and appropriate course of action; you will be ready for any dental emergency.
At TFI Dentistry, we offer efficient emergency care to our patients to correct serious dental concerns and eliminate any repercussions.
Why is it important to receive care as soon as possible in a dental emergency?
If your tooth has experienced trauma or if the nerve is exposed, generally you will experience discomfort and pain. While our dental professionals strive to eliminate pain as soon as possible, it is also important to repair or seal your damaged tooth to save it from extraction.
In the unfortunate case of a knocked out tooth, there is a small window of time where it may be placed back into the jawbone. If addressed by a dental professional within the hour there is a good chance we will be able to restore the tooth. Make sure you keep the tooth in either milk or saliva to keep the tooth vital until you do so. Simply ignoring the dental emergency could cause the tooth’s root to become damaged and eliminate the possibility of it being placed back into the jaw. If treated swiftly, our dental professionals can prevent any further damage, as well as the need for more extensive and expensive treatments in the future.
What can you expect during a dental emergency?
Depending on the severity of the dental emergency, treatment can be simple or much more complex. No matter how minor or erratic dental pain may seem, it could indicate an underlying problem that will worsen over time. TFI Dentistry practitioners will examine, identify and treat the problem areas in an efficient and resolved manner.
While offering relief at the first sight of pain is our priority, we also care for our patients comfort – easing their anxiety throughout the treatment with sedation options.
TFI Dentistry professionals ensure our patients are well-informed about every aspect of their emergency care. We are also committed to discussing all of the options available for your dental emergency so you can make an informed decision.
