Does a dentist have to treat you in a dental emergency?
Many people wonder why they shouldn’t just head over to the nearest emergency room if they’re experiencing a dental emergency. In truth, an emergency dentist can provide much more specialized care for your problem. For example, if you have a bad toothache and your regular dentist is not available, you might go to your nearest ER. The doctors there will give you pain pills to take the edge off and perhaps a course of antibiotics.
However, these treatments will not get to the bottom of whatever is causing your tooth pain. An emergency dentist, on the other hand, will evaluate you, identify the cause of your toothache, and treat it accordingly. For example, if tooth decay is causing you pain, they might recommend a filling for your cavity. If you have a tooth abscess, they may recommend and perform a definitive treatment such as a root canal.
The Express Dentist hotline at 1-844-593-0591 can help you get in with an emergency dentist in Georgia and elsewhere in the US with just one phone call.
What is considered a dental emergency?
Most dental problems are not emergencies. For example, mild tooth pain, bad breath, and sensitive teeth are problems for which you can wait to be seen by your regular dentist during business hours. However, some problems require immediate attention from a dentist, such as:
- Uncontrolled bleeding from the mouth
- Facial swelling that is affecting your vision or your ability to swallow or breathe
- Trouble opening or closing your jaw
- Severe toothache
- Swollen or bleeding gums
- Knocked out tooth
- Object lodged between teeth
- Missing filling or crown
- Braces wire poking
What kind of treatments can emergency dentists perform?
Emergency dentists can perform all kinds of dental procedures, such as root canal treatment, dental fillings, and tooth extractions. Here are some of the treatments you may be offered for common dental emergencies: 1
Tooth decay occurs due to a destruction of the tooth enamel by bacteria. When the infection spreads to the pulp (inside) of the tooth, it is called a tooth abscess. If left untreated, a tooth abscess can spread to the surrounding tissue and cause serious complications. An emergency dentist can provide immediate treatment for a dental abscess with antibiotics and/or drainage of the abscess if required. They may also perform more definitive treatment for a tooth abscess consisting of root canal therapy or extraction of the affected tooth.
A tooth avulsion, i.e., a tooth that has been completely knocked out of the mouth, is a dental emergency. You need to see an emergency dentist within 30-60 minutes to save the tooth. An emergency dentist can replant the tooth in its socket and ensure minimum damage to the tooth root and gum tissues. The best results in avulsion injuries are obtained when the tooth has been out of its socket for less than 20 minutes. Time is of the essence. Call Express Dentist at 1-844-593-0591 for the best chance of getting an emergency dental appointment near you without delay.
How to pay for emergency dental treatment?
You can pay for emergency dental treatment with cash, credit cards, or private PPO insurance. Keep in mind that not all dental emergencies are covered by insurance. Whether after-hours dental care will be covered will depend on your specific dental insurance plan. If you’re not sure whether you have insurance coverage for emergency dentistry, call Express Dentist on 1-844-593-0591. We can help you find emergency dentists in your area who accept your insurance.
If you don’t have dental insurance, you can pay with cash or credit cards. Express Dentist can help you find dental care at affordable prices in your area. Many top dentists offer flexible payment plans. Also, some dental professionals have collaborated with third-party lenders who can give you a personal loan to facilitate necessary dental procedures.
The important thing is to avoid delaying your dental appointment. Remember, failure to get timely dental care can lead to serious health complications and the need for costly and extensive dental treatments in the future.
