When you wake up with an agonizing toothache or break a filling during dinner, it is important to know the answer to the question, “Where can I get emergency dental care near me?” Knowing when and where to go for emergency dental services will ensure that you get the relief from your pain that you desperately need and that you protect your teeth from further damage.
How Quickly Can You See Patients for Dental Emergencies?
If you require urgent dental care during regular business hours, please call our office to schedule an appointment with one of our emergency dentists. We strive to see all patients with urgent or painful dental issues as quickly as possible. In most cases, we are able to offer same-day appointments. Our goal is to diagnose your issue, take the necessary steps to resolve your pain, and recommend any further treatments that may be needed to prevent the issue from reoccurring.
Why Is Emergency Dental Care Important?
Emergency dental care involves resolving pain, making any repairs necessary to protect the structural integrity of the teeth, and addressing any issues that may cause permanent damage or complications if treatment is delayed. The following are examples of the types of services provided by our emergency dentists:
- Repair and replacement of lost or loose fillings and crowns
- Repair and reinforcement of teeth damaged by trauma
- Emergency tooth extractions
- Treatment of wisdom tooth pain and swelling
- Diagnosis and treatment of dental infections
- Treatment of orthodontic pain and injuries
When Should I Seek Urgent Dental Care?
To avoid tooth damage, infection, and pain, you should schedule a consultation with one of our emergency dentists as soon as possible if you experience any of the following:
Chipped, Cracked, or Fractured Teeth
Chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth require prompt treatment to prevent infection or further structural damage.
Call us right away for instructions on how to preserve your knocked-out teeth and come to the office right away to see if the teeth can be re-implanted.
A severe toothache, especially when accompanied by fever, earache, or other symptoms, is a sign of a serious dental issue and should never be ignored.
Extreme Tooth Sensitivity
Our dentists can determine if your extreme tooth sensitivity is caused by a damaged tooth or an infection.
Our dentists can repair teeth damaged by tooth decay to relieve your pain and prevent further damage.
It is imperative to treat a dental abscess quickly to keep the infection from affecting nearby teeth.
Missing or Damaged Filling
A missing or damaged filling can cause significant discomfort as well as make the tooth more vulnerable to infection and structural damage.
Missing or Damaged Crowns, Veneers and Restorations
Missing or damaged crowns and veneers, and other restorations, should be repaired or replaced as quickly as possible since they help protect the structure of the tooth.
Orthodontic Pain and Injuries
Broken brackets and wires from braces should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent orthodontic pain and injuries.
Tooth Damage Related to Teeth Grinding
Our dentists can repair any existing tooth damage related to teeth grinding and provide you with a mouthguard to prevent further issues.
Sinus pressure and tooth pain are often related to dental issues. Our dentists can determine if your pressure and pain is caused by an infection or an impacted wisdom tooth.
How Do I Know If My Dental Emergency Is Serious Enough for the Emergency Room?
While our emergency dentists in Gilbert can handle many different types of emergency dental situations, there are times when more specialized care is necessary. You should contact a primary care provider, oral surgeon, 911, or your local emergency room if you experience any of the following:
- severe bleeding that is uncontrollable,
- any type of traumatic injury to the head or face that damages the teeth or jaw, and
- sudden or severe facial or gum swelling.
If you are wondering if you should go to the emergency room or call 911 for emergency dental care, always err on the side of caution and seek immediate help.
How Much Do Your Emergency Dentists in Gilbert Charge?
One of the first questions that patients ask when scheduling an appointment with one of our emergency dentists is, “How much will I pay for emergency dental care near me?” The answer to that question varies based on the nature of your dental issue and the type of treatment needed to resolve your symptoms. We will provide you with an outline of your cost as soon as one of our emergency dentists has assessed your situation. Our emergency dental office also accepts most major dental insurance plans and credit cards. You may also qualify for one of our flexible payment options.
What Are My Options for After-hours Emergency Dental Services?
How you deal with urgent dental issues after hours depends on the nature of the issue and the severity of your pain. If your pain is severe or your issue is the result of a traumatic injury, your best option is to seek immediate help by calling 911 or going to the emergency room. If your issue can wait until normal business hours, you can call (480) 359-3162, and we will get you in to see one of our emergency dentists as quickly as possible. If you are unsure about the seriousness of your situation, you should seek help as soon as possible to prevent further damage or complications.
