Emergency Dentistry Services at 4th Floor Dental
What is Emergency Dentistry?
Emergency dentistry is a branch of dentistry that deals with dental emergencies. It can be defined as: “A specialty in dentistry which provides immediate relief for dental problems and concerns.”
We provide emergency care for patients suffering from trauma, toothaches, tooth decay, and other problems. Toothaches and accidents don’t always happen when the office is open. There are times, although rare, that you need dental services now to stabilize your situation until we can get a more permanent solution. Because of this, we offer emergency dental services after hours to ensure that our patients are as comfortable as possible.
Infections That Require Emergency Dental Treatment
Infections are a serious health concern for all people, and the mouth is no exception. There are many different types of infections that may occur in your mouth, and some of them require emergency dental treatment.
A tooth abscess is a type of infection that can cause significant pain and swell in the area around the tooth. If you have a tooth abscess, it’s essential to see a dentist as soon as possible because it can lead to more serious complications if left untreated. If you have a severe toothache for any reason, you can count on our emergency dental services for help.
Common Dental Emergencies & Treatments
There are many dental emergencies that can happen to a person. These emergencies can range from a toothache to a broken tooth. One of the most common dental emergencies is when someone has an infected tooth. To treat this, the dentist will prescribe antibiotics and/or painkillers. Sometimes we will need to remove the tooth to get rid of the infection.
If you have been in an accident and broken a tooth or have a severe toothache, don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Our dental team is ready and waiting at a moment’s notice to get you or your family member comfortable.
