Emergency Dentistry


Emergency Dentistry: An Overview

Our team begins by examining the area that is called in regarding the emergency dentistry service. We decide from there if you may need a service such as a root canal, extraction, or a mercury free tooth filling. We also come to our final conclusion by giving x-rays, taking pictures of your teeth and mouth, and giving you a detailed consultation with our lead dentist, Dr. Natalie Diangani, to discuss your options. We want to alleviate your pain with the best comfort and care by our team and do our best to begin your treatment the same day.

What is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is anytime you wake up and you're having pain, discomfort, swelling, throbbing in any area of your mouth. If you wake up one morning and you're noticing any kind of swelling that is localized in just that area or you're having any bleeding, any pain, anything sore, throbbing or hurting you, definitely you want to get into your dentist as soon as possible.

What Are the Criteria for Emergency Room Visits?

When you would actually need to go to the emergency room would be if the swelling is just around the tooth, at that point you can go see your emergency dentist and find one as soon as possible. When the swelling actually starts to go to other parts of the body, like if you notice swelling on your neck, if you notice swelling, no, in this area just below the chin, if it starts to spread past the tooth and go into other parts of your face, that's when you definitely might want to see the emergency room.

What Are Some Signs That You Need to Go to the Emergency Room?

If this happens on a Saturday evening and you're unable to get to an emergency dentist and you're noticing that swelling is getting worse and then you're able to go to the emergency room. If you're having any difficulty breathing, if you're having any difficulty swallowing, those are definitely signs that the infection has spread to other parts of the body and it's a serious emergency. So in those cases you need to go to the emergency room.

How Can Teeth be Saved Through Treatment?

When these cases arise where you do have swelling in the tooth, sometimes that tooth is able to be saved. Sometimes we're able to do something called a root canal on the tooth, which is a process of removing the nerve and being able to save that tooth. However, if the infection is pretty extensive or the tooth is broken in such a way where we cannot save it, you're going to need to have an emergency dental extraction.

If we’re unable to save the tooth or we can look at it and see that it just doesn't make sense over the long term for you to keep this tooth, we'll provide an emergency extraction. Any time you wake up first thing in the morning and you are experiencing that swelling, you just come right into an emergency dentist.

How Would a Dentist Assess and Plan Treatment for an Emergency?

We will take a look at the tooth, take x-rays of the tooth, and we'll be able to let you know if this tooth can be saved or not. If it can't be saved, we'll go ahead and do a root canal as soon as possible if it makes more sense to remove it.

How Urgency are Dental Emergencies?

It was really important to me that we're able to get patients who are in pain in as soon as possible because the thing with dental emergencies is they only get worse over time, and the sooner you get in to see a dentist, the better it is for you.

We always offer our patients same day availability so that we can come in, look at the tooth, and discuss what the game plan is going forward to get you out of pain and healthy. At our location, we do have late days. We offer appointments as late as 6 or 7 p.m. on certain days, so we can definitely arrange to fit in with your busy schedule. We also offer weekend appointments once in a while.
