What Is a Dental Emergency?
Dental emergencies involve oral injuries and pain. One of the most common examples is a loose or knocked out tooth. We can often save the natural tooth if the root isn’t damaged, but the sooner you meet with one of our emergency dentists, the better your chance of restoring a full smile.
Other types of urgent dental problems include:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Foreign objects stuck between teeth
- Lost fillings or crowns
- Tooth abscesses (infections)
- Lip, gum, or cheek injuries
Some of these may not require an immediate visit, which is another reason why we offer round-the-clock phone services. We can walk you through the steps to save a knocked-out tooth among other injuries, and minimize your pain as much as possible.
Why Regular Dental Exams and Checkups are Important
Dental exams and checkups with a general dentist are essential to maintaining a healthy mouth and an overall healthy body. Millions of men, women, and children go to emergency rooms each year complaining of a toothache. These visits to the ER can often be avoided through preventative care at our dentistry office.
It is much easier, and less costly, to treat a small cavity than address a severe tooth infection.
During your bi-annual checkups, we look for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and problems with your bite. Our dentists aim to treat issues before they progress, and regular dental exams are an essential part of that process. Early gum disease (gingivitis) can typically be reversed, but without proper care and intervention, advanced gum disease (periodontitis) may cause you to lose one or more teeth.
