What is an Emergency Dentist?

What is and Emergency Dentist?

An emergency dentist is a dental professional who is able to provide care to patients that need immediate attention to their oral health. Typically, an emergency appointment will happen within 24 hours of the request. Emergency dentists are not recommended for those who have experienced trauma to the neck or head. Instead, one should visit the emergency room or a general physician. A dentist who is able to provide emergency care can be incredibly helpful for a community, being able to provide care to those in immediate need. 

Reasons for an Emergency Dental Visit

There are many reasons for someone to need an emergency dental visit. In general, if one is experiencing oral pain that is negatively affecting their life, they should seek help. Emergency dentists can treat immediate issues such as partially knocked out or extruding teeth and missing pieces of dental restorations like a filling or a crown. More long-term issues such as severe or long-lasting toothaches or chipped teeth are also reasons to visit an emergency dentist. Receiving care for a dental emergency is important because the problem could become more severe over time. We are happy to provide care for these various dental emergencies.
