Why would I need emergency dental care?

When you have an oral health problem that just can’t wait for an appointment, call Dean L Brown, DDS, for emergency dental care. 

Patients may need emergency dental care after an injury, like a car accident or sports tackle. Sometimes, you just have severe tooth pain that arises out of nowhere.

Emergencies treated at Dean L Brown, DDS, include: 

  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Objects stuck between teeth
  • Sudden, severe tooth pain caused by decay or gum disease

If you need emergency care, don’t put it off or risk further complications. If you aren’t sure that your problem requires emergency care, call the office anyway. The friendly staff helps you determine your best course of action. 

How can I prevent a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies that happen because of an accident or fall usually can’t be prevented. But there are ways to avoid other problems with your teeth that could lead to the need for emergency care. 

These recommendations help you avoid dental emergencies: 

  • Schedule dental exams and cleanings every six months
  • Brush and floss twice daily
  • Make an appointment when you first start to feel pain or tooth sensitivity
  • Use scissors and tools instead of your teeth
  • Avoid chewing on solid objects like ice cubes, hard candies, and popcorn seeds
  • Wear a mouthguard while playing contact sports

If you have a dental emergency and need expert care, call Dean L Brown, DDS, to schedule an immediate appointment or check the online booking tool. 

What should I expect at an emergency dental care appointment?

When you come to Dean L Brown, DDS, for your emergency appointment, you’ll be seen as soon as possible. Your dentist does a thorough exam to evaluate the extent of your injury or determine the cause of your pain. Dr. Brown may order digital X-rays, too.

Once you receive a diagnosis, Dr. Brown puts together a treatment plan. In some cases, you’re given a temporary fix until you can get the specialized care you need. For example, if you come in with terrible tooth pain and require a root canal, the staff at Dean L Brown, DDS, can give you medications to ease the pain until you can make an appointment at a recommended endodontist.
