what are emergency dental services?
Emergency dental treatment is the relief of severe pain and swelling of the teeth, gums, bone and area around the mouth. During a dental emergency, the dentist will check your teeth, gums, bone and other oral structures for defects and disease. The exam includes identifying present concerns, evaluating your risk of the condition worsening, discussing short-term pain relief options as well as a long-term treatment plan. A dental emergency exam typically includes utilizing X-rays (radiographs) and other diagnostic procedures to provide oral health professionals with sufficient information to evaluate your condition.
why are emergency dental services important?
Seeking the services of a dentist during a dental emergency can help protect us from serious and potentially worsening oral health conditions. If severe pain or swelling is left alone, it could develop complicated and threatening systemic health concerns. A dental emergency that is caused by a single tooth can also damage adjacent teeth if left untreated.
