What happens during your emergency dental visit depends on the nature of your dental emergency.
For example, if you have a deep root infection causing swelling and pain, the best treatment is a root canal to stop the ache and save your tooth.
If you’ve suffered a tooth trauma, like a knocked-out tooth, you should keep the tooth in a container of water until your dental visit. Keeping it moist and timely intervention from your emergency dentist means we may be able to reposition the tooth in the gum and save it from loss.
Other dental emergencies may include broken restorations or objects lodged between teeth or soft tissues.
Of course, it is impossible to imagine all the potential scenarios. So, if you notice an oral health issue that causes you pain or one that does not improve within a day or two, we encourage you to give us a call.
