COMMON TYPES OF DENTAL EMERGENCIES
Did you have a tooth knocked out? Severe toothache? Lost or broken dental work? When you need dental care fast, you can always rely on our dental office in Phoenix. When you call us with an emergency, we’ll do our best to see and treat you as quickly as possible. Our team is experienced in handling a wide variety of dental emergencies, so when you need us the most, you can trust us in giving you the care that you need. We can also walk you through at-home care over the phone, including the following first aid and pain management steps.
If you’re experiencing a toothache, examine the damaged tooth carefully to make sure there isn’t anything stuck between teeth or any visible dental damage that is causing the discomfort. You should call our team for an appointment, but in the meantime, take over the counter pain relievers as directed to improve comfort. You can use ice packs or cold compresses at 20-minute intervals to relieve pain, prevent inflammation, and slow bleeding. Topical numbing agents can also be used to relieve discomfort unless you have an open wound. When possible, avoid eating until you reach our dental office. If you do eat, take care to avoid chewing with the damaged area. You should also be careful to avoid the damaged area when brushing and flossing your teeth.
If you have a chipped or broken tooth, carefully examined the damaged area. To slow bleeding, bite down on gauze or clean cloth. If bleeding continues, apply ice packs at 20-minute intervals. If the chipped or broken tooth has sharp edges that may cause damage to surrounding teeth or soft tissue, you can cover the sharp pieces with orthodontic wax or continue to bite down on the gauze to protect surrounding structures from additional damage. When possible, avoid eating until you reach our dental office. If you do eat, take care to avoid chewing with the damaged area. You should also be careful to avoid the damaged area when brushing and flossing your teeth. If you’re experiencing discomfort, follow the directions above for toothaches.
KNOCKED OUT TOOTH
Locate the tooth and pick it up by the crown portion only. Do not touch the root or remove any tissue still attached to it. After gently rinsing off any dirt or debris, place it back into your open socket. If not possible, keep it contained in milk or saltwater to keep it preserved for up to one hour.
Most fillings will need to be outright replaced. However, you can temporarily cover the exposed portion of the tooth with dental cement until you get to our dental office. This material can also be used to hold a crown. These are not permanent solutions and you will need to visit our dental office to replace your restoration.
THE COST OF TREATING DENTAL EMERGENCIES
The cost of your emergency dentistry treatment will differ depending on the complexity of the dental services you’ll need to repair any damage and renew your oral health. When you visit our dental office during an emergency, our team at Minted Dental will review your situation, explain all of your treatment options, and help you to understand the cost associated with each treatment. Additionally, we’ll process and file dental insurance claims to help you offset the out of pocket costs of your emergency dental restoration. We are also happy to work with third party financiers to deliver low and no interest payment plans.
