March 15, 2023

A dental emergency can be shocking. Whether it’s a tooth being knocked out or a lost dental crown, it can throw off your whole day and leave you at a loss for your next steps. While it’s impossible to fully prevent random accidents or issues, you can be sure of what to expect at your emergency dental visit. Read on to learn from your emergency dentist about four things you can count on when your smile needs to be treated right away.

#1: You Can Get a Same-Day Appointment

The first thing you should do when you have an urgent dental situation is to contact your dentist. If you have a more severe situation, such as a knocked-out tooth, your dental team can schedule you for a same-day appointment. For less urgent matters like a mild toothache or chipped tooth, then you can always visit at a time convenient for you. Additionally, some dentists even make it a priority to see you for dental emergencies in the evening or on the weekend.

#2: You Will Receive an Emergency Dental Examination

Your biannual checkups involved your dentist evaluating the health of your teeth, gums, and tongue, as well as checking for other oral issues before they develop into something more serious. On the other hand, an emergency dental visit will consist of a thorough examination of your urgent dental condition.  They will review your dental history and seek to get to the root of the issue. They may even take X-rays or provide other services if necessary to return your smile to top condition!

#3: You Can Be Treated with Local Anesthesia

One of the worst things about a dental emergency is experiencing any pain. Luckily, not all unexpected issues with your teeth cause discomfort; however, if they do, your dentist can administer a local anesthetic to numb the disturbed area. This will not only keep you as comfortable as possible but give your dentist the opportunity to treat your smile with more effective treatment.

#4: You Will Receive a Renewed & Comfortable Smile

An injury to your teeth can not only negatively impact your oral health but also your appearance. During your emergency visit, your dentist will treat both your discomfort and help restore your pearly whites. Advancements in modern technology and advanced techniques have made it possible to treat your injured smile as quickly, carefully, and accurately as possible. Before you know it, you will enjoy a strong and healthy smile again!

By being aware of what to expect from an emergency dental visit, you will feel calmer and more assured during an unknown time. With the help of your dentist, your oral health and smile will return to their best condition.
