When is emergency dental care required for dental problems?

How can I tell which emergencies demand treatment at an emergency dental office near me?

You should call our office if you experience any of the dental problems below during normal business hours. But if you suffer after-hours or weekend injuries, major dental trauma, injuries to the jaw, or nonstop bleeding, we strongly urge you to call our emergency service immediately.  We advise seeking emergency care if you experience any of the following:

Major Tooth Pressure or Pain

These can be symptoms of many different dental problems and should never be overlooked. As a result, you need to have major tooth pressure or pain treated right away, especially if you also have a fever, headache, or other unusual symptoms.

Extreme Sensitivity

Sensitive teeth are a common condition that usually doesn’t demand treatment. But if you experience extreme sensitivity, it could be an indication of an infection or dental damage.

Painful Cavities

Cavities are the result of extensive tooth decay. Fortunately, our experienced dentists can relieve painful cavities and restore the decayed tooth.

Missing Dental Fillings

It can be extremely painful and problematic to have missing dental fillings. Please contact our office immediately to have your fillings repaired or replaced.

A Fractured Tooth or Teeth

To avoid structural damage and dental infection, you must have a fractured tooth or teeth repaired as soon as possible. Call our practice and we will do our best to provide you with same-day treatment.

A Knocked-Out Tooth or Teeth

Did you know that a knocked-out tooth or teeth can actually be re-implanted if you seek treatment soon enough?  To improve your chances of saving the tooth, gather and rinse all of the tooth’s fragments, and then try to place the tooth back into its socket and call our office for more information.

Dental Abscess

The medical name for a dental infection at the tooth’s root, a dental abscess can cause significant tooth pain, sensitivity, swollen glands, facial swelling, and other serious issues if left untreated. If you have a dental abscess, call our office right away.

Crown or Restoration Loss or Damage

While it may appear to be only a cosmetic problem, crown or restoration loss or damage can weaken a tooth and make it vulnerable to greater problems. That’s why a dentist needs to repair the problem immediately.

Eroded Tooth Enamel Due to Habitual Grinding

Grinding your teeth on a regular basis is a condition known as bruxism. Over time, this can result in eroded tooth enamel due to habitual grinding and requires emergency treatment to repair enamel and provide a protective mouth guard.

Orthodontic Injury or Discomfort

Metal braces often can be painful after routine adjustments or damage to brackets and wires. To avoid additional pain and problems, you need to have your braces repaired immediately if you experience orthodontic injury or discomfort.

Persistent Sinus Pressure

Ongoing sinus pressure can affect every aspect of your daily life. If you have persistent sinus pressure, a dental professional must make sure that it’s not a symptom of an impacted wisdom tooth or dental infection.

What should I do for severe dental concerns?

If I think my emergency is very serious, do I need to dial 911 or should I visit a dentist for emergency dental services?

Dr. Zoltek can provide general and surgical emergency treatment, but more severe dental problems may require more specialized care. For the three severe cases below, it’s recommended that you call  Dr.Zoltek, or just go to the hospital immediately.

  1. Uncontrollable bleeding
  2. Extreme swelling
  3. A major trauma or injury to your teeth, head, jaw, or face.
