A dental emergency can be a very uncomfortable experience. Whether you have an irritating toothache or a fractured tooth, you may wonder, “Who can provide emergency dental care near me?” Getting the emergency dental care you need can make all the difference when it comes to recovery time. It can also prevent more complicated problems from occurring in the future.

An Emergency Dental Office Near Me

When an urgent dental problem occurs, getting an evaluation from our emergency dentists in North Point can help you recover quickly and get back on the road to good oral health. Don’t wait to see if the issue resolves itself over time – doing so can cause the dental issue to worsen. Our skilled emergency dentists make every effort to see patients as quickly as possible, sometimes even the same day. You’ll receive an oral examination, diagnosis, and treatment plan that relieves your discomfort. Call us today to schedule an emergency dental appointment.

What Is Emergency Dental Care?

Emergency dental services include treatment for dental issues that must be resolved immediately. Whether it’s a severe toothache or painful dental abscess, emergency dentists work to quickly eliminate the problem and relieve the patient’s pain. At our practice, our dentists provide a host of emergency dental services during regular business hours, including:

  • Treatment for oral pain and pressure resulting from injury or tooth decay
  • Emergency tooth extraction
  • Urgent tooth repair for structurally damaged teeth
  • Missing or damaged tooth fillings and crowns
  • Wisdom tooth pain and swelling
  • Oral infection treatment
  • Pain caused by orthodontic devices, such as metal braces

When to Call for Urgent Dental Care

I’m unsure if my situation is a dental emergency. When is it time to call an emergency dental office near me?

If you’re suffering from any of the following oral health issues, you may require emergency services. Call our office during regular business hours to make an appointment with one of our emergency dentists in North Point.

Structurally Damaged Teeth

It’s important to obtain treatment from emergency dentists right away for broken or fractured teeth. Failing to do so could result in further structural damage, or even an oral infection. If your broken tooth has sharp edges, use orthodontic wax to keep the tooth from hurting your cheek or tongue.

Avulsed (Knocked-Out) Teeth

A knocked-out tooth can be an alarming experience for many people. If your tooth becomes dislodged or knocked-out, try not to panic. Oftentimes, emergency dentists can reinsert knocked-out teeth if the patient receives care quickly. Be sure to gather any available tooth fragments and gently rinse them with warm water.

Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure

There are a number of things that could cause severe toothache pain or pressure, including a cavity, fracture, or other structural problem. See a dentist immediately if your oral pain is severe, particularly if you’re also running a fever.

Sensitive Teeth

Some cases of mild tooth sensitivity don’t warrant urgent dental care. However, a tooth that suddenly becomes hypersensitive can indicate a fracture or gum infection, and should be examined by a dentist.

Tooth Decay and Cavities

Sometimes, lack of oral hygiene causes a buildup of dental decay (cavities). A large cavity can cause an intense toothache that shouldn’t be ignored. Contact our emergency dental office if you’re experiencing pain due to dental decay.

Dental Abscess

An abscessed tooth can develop when infection spreads to the root of a tooth. This serious dental condition can cause draining sores, bad breath, and severe oral pain. Tooth abscesses can become very serious if left untreated, so call our office right away if you suspect a dental abscess.

Lost or Loose Fillings

When received as cavity treatment, tooth fillings protect the healthy parts of a tooth from further damage. If you have lost or loose fillings, your tooth may be susceptible to decay and injury, so it’s important to receive a replacement as soon as possible.

Damaged or Lost Tooth Crowns and Restorations

Broken tooth crowns or lost restorations do more than just add cosmetic flaws to your smile. Not only does the missing crown or restoration look unsightly, it leaves the area vulnerable to damage. Seek treatment from our emergency dentists if your crown or restoration is broken or missing.

Orthodontic Pain and Injuries

Metal wires and brackets often cause orthodontic pain or injuries. If your braces are uncomfortable, call our office to schedule an emergency dental care appointment.

Worn Tooth Enamel

Grinding your teeth can wear down your enamel, which is a protective layer covering your teeth. If nighttime teeth grinding is causing you discomfort, contact our office. Our emergency dentists can offer solutions for tooth enamel damaged by teeth grinding.

Pressure in the Sinuses

Sometimes, persistent sinus pressure has an underlying dental cause, such as impacted wisdom teeth. If you’re suffering from sinus pain accompanied by toothache, it’s important to be evaluated by a dentist.

What to Do When Your Condition is Serious

I think my dental issue is serious. Is it best to call for emergency dental care near me, or visit my local hospital?

There are some conditions that require more intensive treatment than an emergency dental visit can offer. If you notice these symptoms, call your primary care physician, 911, or visit the nearest emergency room:

  • Trauma to the head, jaw, neck, or teeth
  • Severe oral bleeding
  • Persistent, uncontrollable gum or facial swelling

Emergency Dental Visit Costs

Like most dental treatment, emergency care will vary in cost depending on the severity of your condition. When you receive an evaluation from one of our emergency dentists in North Point, he or she will outline the best course of treatment and provide an estimate of the cost. Your insurance may provide full or partial coverage. Our emergency dental office also accepts most major credit cards for your convenience. Those without insurance should consider DentRite, an easy-to-join dental savings plan. With DentRite, you’ll save hundreds of dollars on the dental care you need. To learn more about our affordable options for emergency dental care, give our office a call.
