Emergency Dentistry Denver NC
Dental problems rarely strike at a convenient time. In fact, many dental emergencies occur after hours, when dental practices are closed. However, when you work with the Denver Dental Arts team, we can provide emergency dental care when you need it. Our Denver, NC practice offers emergency dentistry for established patients in our office, ensuring an after-hours dentist is available for you.
What is a dental emergency?
Dental emergencies are situations that may arise and require immediate care from a dental provider. This may include a variety of different situations, including:
- A severe toothache that cannot be controlled with pain medications until business hours.
- Trauma/injury to the mouth, teeth, or gums.
- Lost/knocked out tooth or teeth.
- Removable dental appliances that need adjustments, such as partial dentures.
- Lost fillings/dental crowns that leave the tooth’s inner canals susceptible to infection.
- An abscess that develops around a tooth.
- Chipped/cracked tooth structure.
What to do in a dental emergency
When a problem happens, it often requires care with a dental professional as soon as possible. Depending on the severity, it needs to be handled in a dental office, unless it is best to visit an emergency room. When a dental emergency occurs, our office can be reached for recommendations regarding what to expect, where to go, what to do when you arrive at our practice. We want to make sure that patients are fully informed about what may happen when they obtain emergency dental care with the team at Denver Dental Arts. We do our best to keep patients from experiencing the unexpected, as the situation that leads them to call our office is often unexpected enough. We also help patients determine if their dental insurance might reduce their overall cost of treatment and out-of-pocket expenses.
