What is an example of a dental emergency?

Most dental problems are not dental emergencies. You can wait a few days or even a couple of weeks before getting them checked out by your regular dentist. However, anything that is potentially life-threatening, such as bleeding in the mouth that does not stop, qualifies as a dental emergency. You should not delay seeking care for a dental emergency.

What are some common problems an emergency dentist in Arizona might treat?

According to the American Dental Association, the following are examples of common dental emergencies:

1
  • Bleeding that won’t stop
  • Knocked out tooth
  • Severe toothache
  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Broken or cracked tooth
  • Missing filling
  • Dental appliance poking
  • Object stuck in mouth

If you are experiencing a dental emergency and want to see a dentist right away, call the Express Dentist hotline at 1-844-593-0591. Operators are on standby and can get you a dental appointment, often on the same day.

How do you handle dental emergencies at home?

You should not handle dental emergencies at home. If you are not sure whether it is a dental emergency, it is best to err on the side of caution and seek professional dental care. Here are some general guidelines about what to do before you can get in to see an emergency dentist.

Knocked out tooth

If you have an avulsed tooth, i.e., the tooth has completely fallen out of your mouth, it is a dental emergency. You need to see an emergency dentist within 30-60 minutes to save your tooth. In the meantime, you should wash the tooth with clean, cold water and try to place it back in its socket in your mouth. If this is not possible, you can keep the tooth moist in a small amount of saliva or milk. If you have a tooth preservation kit, you can use that too. Call the Express Dentist hotline on 1-844-593-0591 for an urgent dental appointment right away and make your way to the dentist without delay.

Uncontrolled bleeding

If you have suffered an injury, such as from biting down on something sharp, and are experiencing uncontrolled bleeding from the mouth that does not stop after 10-15 minutes of pressure, you should see an emergency dentist in Arizona or proceed to the nearest emergency room as soon as possible. In the meantime, you should press firmly on the site of bleeding with a clean cloth. If there is an object in the wound, apply pressure around the object and not on it.

Tooth abscess

Untreated tooth decay (deep cavities) can lead to the development of a dental abscess. This is a spread of the infection to deep inside the tooth. It is a serious condition that needs to be evaluated and treated by an emergency dentist. Dental professionals can offer pain pills, antibiotics, and treatments like root canal for a tooth abscess.

This is not a comprehensive list of dental emergencies. Emergency dentists who are provider partners with Express Dentist are qualified and experienced in treating a wide range of dental emergencies that require immediate care. Don’t delay. Call Express Dentist on 1-844-593-0591 today for an after-hours or weekend dental appointment.

Does insurance cover dental emergencies in Arizona?

Dental insurance may or may not cover treatment from an emergency dentist in Arizona. It depends on your specific dental insurance plan and the problem you’re experiencing. For instance, some plans do not consider a toothache a dental emergency but will cover treatment of a tooth abscess.

Most plans from private insurance providers provide coverage for some dental emergencies. However, you may have a co-pay. Sometimes, you have to pay for emergency dental care 100% out of pocket. The only way to find out is to call Express Dentist at 1-844-593-0591. We can connect you to leading emergency dentists in your community and you can find out if they accept your dental plan.

If you don’t have dental insurance, you can pay by cash or card. An emergency dentist may be able to offer an easy payment plan to make necessary dental care affordable for you. Some dental providers have partnered with third-party lenders so that you can take out a personal loan and get the dental treatment you need.

Friendly and helpful operators are online at Express Dentist on 1-844-593-0591 to help you find affordable emergency dental care. The important thing is to avoid delays in getting professional treatment. Failure to get timely oral health care could result in serious health complications. It might also lead to costly dental treatments in the future. Call Express Dentist on 1-844-593-0591 today for an after-hours or weekend dental appointment with an emergency dentist in Arizona.
