Urgent Dental Care: When You Need Us Most

March 25, 2024

No one wants to experience a dental emergency, but knowing what to do and where to go for care can make all the difference when you're in pain or have sustained a dental injury. At Providence Dental, we're here to help! Our skilled dentists offer a comprehensive range of services that meet the needs of every member of your family. We understand how distressing a dental emergency can be and strive to provide prompt, effective care.

Understanding Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can come in many forms, from a sudden toothache or an injury during sports to a problematic wisdom tooth or a broken denture. Some emergencies are painful and require immediate attention, while others may not be as acute but still impact your ability to eat, speak, or smile with confidence. Regardless of the nature of your dental emergency, it's important to seek care promptly.

When to Seek Urgent Care

  • Severe toothache that does not improve or worsens with over-the-counter pain relief medications
  • An injured or knocked-out tooth
  • A chipped, cracked, or broken tooth causing discomfort or bleeding
  • A missing or damaged dental filling or crown
  • A painful oral lesion or mouth sore that is not improving with over-the-counter remedies

While some dental emergencies may be more urgent than others, it's always a good idea to get dental pain evaluated and treated quickly. If left untreated, many dental problems can worsen and negatively impact your oral health and overall well-being.

What to Expect When You Visit Us

Upon arrival at our office for a dental emergency, we'll review your medical and dental history and gather information about the onset and type of symptoms you're experiencing. We'll also take diagnostic films as needed and perform a clinical exam to determine the cause of your emergency. Throughout the process, we strive to provide gentle, comfortable care while addressing any questions or concerns you may have.

Restoring Your Smile and Oral Health

Once an accurate diagnosis is reached, our skilled dentists will provide the appropriate care to alleviate your pain and restore your oral health. This may involve filling a cavity, repairing a damaged tooth, or treating an infection or abscess. In some cases, additional procedures such as root canal therapy or extractions may be necessary. Regardless of the treatment required, you can trust us to provide compassionate care with precision and skill.
