Help Right When You Need It
A dental emergency is something that requires professional treatment from your dentist right away. If you have broken something in your mouth, if you are bleeding, or if you are experiencing severe dental pain, get in touch with our office as soon as possible. Dr. Dinesh Patel and our team will be ready to get you out of pain and on with your life!
Do not delay urgent treatment because you are unsure whether or not you are experiencing a true emergency. If you feel like something is wrong, it probably is. Some of the most common dental emergencies that we treat include…
- Knocked out or dislodged teeth
- Broken teeth
- Broken fillings, crowns, or other dental work
- Tooth abscesses or severely aching teeth
- Occlusal Adjustments
- Lacerated soft tissue
- Something lodged between teeth
When you call our office soon after you realize you have a dental emergency, we will provide you with some next-steps to help reduce the pain and improve the chances of a successful outcome. Then, we will schedule a time for you to come in as soon as is necessary depending on the severity of your situation.
While your dentist is better-equipped to handle most emergencies than the ER, remember that if you are bleeding profusely for 10 minutes or more or if you have broken a bone in your jaw, you should head straight to the emergency room.
Have you or a loved one recently suffered a dental injury or developed a toothache? If so, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our office. Dental issues rarely get better on their own, and receiving the care you need sooner rather than later could mean the difference between saving the tooth or not. The team at Summit Family Dentistry is standing by, waiting to help!
