What qualifies as a dental emergency?

Dentistry that necessitates immediate attention can be categorized as:

  • Aching tooth, feeling irritations and sensations indicating an infection in the teeth or gums
  • Swelling in the jaw due to infections.Trauma resulting in fracturing of the tooth

What happens on an emergency visit to a dentist?

The dentist takes x-rays and performs a restricted examination centered on the dental emergency and the effective treatment. When an emergency arises, it may be essential to refer the patient to a specialist as soon as possible.

Several dental emergencies can be prevented or stopped if frequent cleanings and checkups are conducted on a regular basis. These checkups can effectively aid in the detection of dental problems at the initial stages when they can be easily treated.

All new patients receive oral exam, digital x-rays, and a regular cleaning for $89.
