How Do I Determine If I Need Urgent Dental Care?
I’m not certain that I need emergency dental care. Should I be looking for emergency dental care near me?
If you are suffering from one of the following conditions, you have an emergency, especially if you are in pain.
Broken or Fractured Teeth
Broken or fractured teeth are an emergency; call our office to schedule an emergency appointment. In the meantime, cover any sharp places with dental wax to prevent the tooth from cutting the inside of your mouth until we can see you.
Reimplanting knocked-out teeth is possible if you seek treatment quickly. Try to save the tooth by rinsing it off with warm water and then placing it back into the socket very carefully.
Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure
Severe tooth pain and pressure could be the result of many different conditions. Call our office for emergency dental care if you have other symptoms besides a toothache, such as an earache, because we will need to make a diagnosis to treat you properly.
Sudden, acute tooth sensitivity can be cause for alarm, as opposed to experiencing only minor sensitivity. Emergency dentists will determine the reason for the sensitivity. Call our office to book an appointment right away.
Dental Decay (Cavities)
Dental decay causes cavities that can become extremely painful if the decay exposes the tooth’s root. Please contact our office so our dentist can determine the best treatment for you that will stop the pain and repair the tooth.
Tooth decay and gum disease can lead to a painful abscessed tooth that needs urgent dental care. Call our office for an appointment and we will see you as soon as possible during business hours.
Lost or Loose Fillings
Lost or loose fillings are not just an annoyance; they can cause sensitivity or pain. Contact us to schedule treatment so the cavity does not become larger.
Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations
Emergency dentists in Suwanee can expertly repair or replace broken crowns or lost restorations to protect the tooth and restore your smile.
Orthodontic Pain or Injuries
You do not have to suffer with orthodontic pain or injuries from metal braces. Contact our office to request an appointment. Emergency dentists are adept at fixing pain and injuries from orthodontic devices.
Tooth Enamel Worn by Teeth Grinding
When you clench your teeth at night and grind them, tooth enamel worn by teeth grinding is inevitable. Let our emergency dentists strengthen your teeth and measure your mouth for a night guard to stop bruxism from damaging your teeth further.
A toothache accompanied by sinus pressure could indicate a dental issue. Experienced emergency dentists will be able to tell you if the problem is related to a dental issue.
Handling More Serious Problems
I do not know if I should visit the nearest emergency room or wait?
Call 911 or visit the emergency room if you are experiencing:
- Severe swelling of your face or gums
- Severe or uncontrollable bleeding
- Traumatic injuries to your face, head, teeth or jaw
How Much Does it Cost to Visit An Emergency Dental Office?
We are unable to tell you how much your emergency dental care will cost until our dentists can determine the extent of your problem. Our office understands that having a dental emergency without insurance is an issue so we offer payment options, and accept credit cards and most dental insurance policies.
We also suggest DentRite® to our patients. It is an easy-to-use discount dental plan that can cover the whole family. DentRite® lets you enjoy significant savings on preventative care, as well as up to a 20 percent discount on common emergency procedures, such as root canals and extractions.
