What is emergency dentistry?

At Eastpoint Dental Clinic, we understand how painful a toothache can be. To that end, we accept dental emergencies on a walk in basis and are on-call in order to treat patients who require "immediate attention."

Accidents do happen, and knowing what to do when one occurs can mean the difference between saving and losing a tooth. In the event an accident occurs, call us and provide as much detail as possible about the situation.

If you're not sure if a dental problem is an emergency, we offer this advice: If it hurts, it's an emergency. This is because even injuries that seem small or superficial can affect the living tissues inside the teeth. Quick treatment improves the odds of saving injured or damaged teeth. Even if you aren't in much pain, any structural damage to a tooth — from a sports injury, for example — should be considered an emergency.

Chips or fractures can affect the living tissue inside the tooth, causing more problems in the future. Your dentist can prevent the damage from getting worse. The same is true of a lost filling or crown. Even if you don't have any symptoms, the tooth has lost its support and it could easily become weaker. Pieces could break off or crumble, and you would need more extensive treatment. If you see your dentist right away, there's a good chance he or she will be able to repair the damage with minimal treatment.

Any injury to teeth or gums can be serious and should not be ignored. Injury can damage nerves or blood vessels. There is also a risk of getting an infection, which can become life threatening. If you ignore dental pain or dental injury, you're taking a chance. You should not delay getting treatment. Delays in treatment can be dangerous to your health. Getting injured teeth repaired and treated quickly is the best thing to do.
