Dental emergencies always choose to arise at the most unexpected and unwanted times.
Dental Emergencies don’t come at the most convenient times (hence, emergency). Whether you’re about to make an important public appearance or approaching a walk down the aisle, you can’t plan for dental emergencies. So what should you do if an emergency arises?
Typical emergency dental cases cannot wait for a scheduled appointment and require immediate dental care. Dental emergencies can vary from the loss of a tooth, loss of a filling, or an extremely uncomfortable and unmanageable tooth pain. These types of cases require urgent contact with your local dentist. Trust Stonegate Dental to help guide you through.
As many patients who have visited the dentist several times before may recognize, brushing and flossing every day will increase your dental health, make dental cleanings easier, and lessen the risk of dental pain and dental emergencies.
Regularly scheduled dental cleanings and oral exams with your dentist will lower the likelihood of a dental emergency. If your dentist recognizes any current problems or risks of future harms to your teeth he or she can identify solutions to fix or monitor before anything gets out of hand.
Despite this amount of care, sometimes, the emergency is unavoidable, like when you lose a tooth from a sports injury. In this case, it’s important to know what you can do.
It’s important to know about the options you have if you are experiencing a dental emergency.
