Advantages of an Emergency Dentist or Same-day Dental Treatment
One of the most common reasons people need same-day dental services is dental pain. Toothache, while not usually life-threatening, is an indicator of a serious dental problem that needs immediate treatment. When you’re in pain, the sooner you are seen at a dental clinic in Omaha, the better. However, your regular dentist may not have an appointment available for a few days or even weeks. The advantage of visiting an emergency dentist in Omaha is that your problem is diagnosed and treated on the same day.
Many Express Dentist partners in Omaha NE accept walk-ins and offer same-day appointments. They treat a wide range of urgent dental issues. After listening to your symptoms, examining your mouth, and perhaps obtaining a dental X-ray, the dentist will make a diagnosis. Following this, you will receive treatments and/or prescriptions to provide you with the relief you need. Emergency dentists have the knowledge, training, and experience to treat all types of urgent dental concerns. In contrast, if you go to a hospital ER, you will likely receive treatment for your symptoms without addressing the underlying dental problem. This puts you at risk of repeat dental issues as well as serious complications.
Common Dental Problems Needing Urgent Care
Severe Tooth Pain
Most people have had a toothache at some point in their lives. Sometimes, the pain is mild and subsides on its own. In this case, you can probably wait a few days before you are seen by a dentist. However, sometimes, the toothache quickly escalates to a high level of intensity and is unbearable. On such occasions, it can be very uncomfortable to wait even a few hours, let alone a couple of days before your regular dentist sees you. A trip to an emergency dentist in Omaha can put you out of your misery. In the majority of patients, the culprit is a decayed tooth or abscessed tooth. The dentist can diagnose the problem and give you antibiotics to treat the infection. They can also remove the infected soft tissue in the tooth pulp with a root canal treatment.
Broken or Lost Tooth
A blow to the face, a hard fall, or a sports injury can cause a tooth fracture or knock a tooth out completely from the mouth. This type of dental trauma should not go untreated. Besides being painful and increasing the risk of an infection, a broken tooth is a dental emergency that needs immediate treatment. If you can find the tooth, you should hold it by the crown (the visible white part of the tooth that projects out from the gum). If it is a permanent tooth in an adult, rinse it with clean water and try to place it back in its socket. Biting down on a clean cotton ball or handkerchief can help hold the broken tooth in position until you see an emergency dentist. 1
A dental abscess is a collection of pus in the pulp of a tooth or the gums. It occurs when bacteria enter into a tooth through a chip or crack following an injury or when dental caries are left untreated. A periodontal (gum) abscess can occur if, for example, a piece of food gets stuck in the gums. A gum or tooth abscess can cause severe throbbing pain that needs urgent dental care. You may also have additional symptoms such as fever, sensitivity to hot and cold foods, a bad taste in the mouth, and problems with swallowing or opening the mouth. It’s essential to get professional dental care as soon as possible to avoid further complications. An emergency dentist in Omaha can diagnose the problem, prescribe medications, and offer other treatments, including urgent surgery if necessary. Without treatment, a tooth abscess can lead to serious complications.
For people who are receiving orthodontic treatment with braces, a broken archwire, band, or bracket can be painful and prevent chewing or talking comfortably. Broken braces can occur due to vigorous brushing or eating the wrong kinds of food (hard, chewy, sticky foods). You should not attempt to fix a broken brace at home as this can do more harm than good. If your orthodontist cannot see you on an urgent basis, it is advisable to go to an emergency dental clinic in Omaha where a dentist can fix a broken bracket, protruding wire, or loose spacer.
