What To Do in a Dental Emergency
POSTED BY: Manpreet Mangat
Found yourself with a dental emergency? Not sure what to do or where to go? Don’t worry – we are here to help!
Whether you are experiencing some sensitivity, your tooth has cracked, or there is severe pain; it is highly advised to get it checked out right away. The sooner the issue is seen by a Dental Professional, the less likely more issues are to occur.
At Braydon Dental Care, we recommend patients to call our office as soon as they are experiencing some discomfort. We will book you in for the soonest available emergency appointment with our Dentist, who will be able to perform an emergency exam and treatment straight away. More often than not, these appointments can be made and seen within the same day.
The Dentist may require an x-ray to be taken of the affected area to determine the severity of the situation. A treatment plan for temporary relief and permanent solutions will be made based on the patient’s needs. The Dentist will discuss your options for short and long term treatment options, and will proceed with the treatment you feel most comfortable with.
In any emergency, our staff at Braydon Dental Care suggest you get help quickly! Pain, sensitivity, cracked teeth will not heal on their own. It is important to have the issue addressed as soon as possible to avoid any further complications. Not seeking medical attention can lead to an infection or the possibility that a partially damaged tooth would need to be completely extracted.
Have any questions? Call our office! We are always here to help.
