Overview

Emergency dentistry is used to describe any sort of immediate dental care that a patient requires to resolve an issue. There are numerous dental issues that unexpectedly arise that need to be treated quickly, such as a toothache, a tooth that falls out, or issues with dental restorations. Luckily for patients of Scottsdale dentist, Dr. Rod Gore, he offers a number of emergency dentistry options to get patients back to their normal activities as soon as possible. The most important thing to remember is to seek treatment right away and not let dental issues continue in order to prevent more extensive problems later on.

Conditions to Treat

Emergency dentistry can be used for the following situations:

  • A tooth that falls out, in which case you can try to place the tooth back into its socket and get to a dentist right away.
  • Tooth pain is a cause for immediate attention from a dentist. Even minor pain signifies the need to seek out dental treatment.
  • Tooth infection, which may also produce pain and is a need for immediate attention.
  • Tooth abscesses require immediate, preliminary treatment and then can be further addressed during regular office hours.
  • Swollen gums.
  • Mouth cuts.
  • Broken dentures.
  • Lost crowns, fillings, or other restoration treatments that require replacement.
  • Tooth damage, such as a tooth crack or tooth chip.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Initially, your dentist may only treat you with prescription-strength analgesics and/or antibiotics to provide immediate relief until you can be treated during regular office hours. Alternatively, you may be able to receive complete treatment. For example, dental crowns traditionally require 2 dental visits. Now, dental crowns can be fabricated and placed in a single dental visit at the practice of Dr. Gore with the use of the CEREC® same-day porcelain crown system.

On the bright side, emergency dentistry may lend the opportunity for you to bring your mouth’s appearance up-to-date with more aesthetically pleasing dental materials, such as composite tooth-colored dental fillings instead of mercury fillings. In other cases, dental bonding works well for small chips and cracks and dental veneers can protect weakened tooth structures.
