Emergency Dental Treatment
Are You Looking For An Atlanta Emergency Dentist?
Finding emergency dental services is the first thing on the mind of anyone with severe toothache pain, broken a tooth, knocked out a tooth, lost a crown or an orthodontic bracket. These are a few of the more common reasons a person needs to see an emergency dentist. Sometimes these emergencies happen at a late hour or on the weekend and unfortunately, most dentists are not open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Knowing what to do and how to handle a dental emergency as well as who to call is important for everyone.
Atlanta Lost Tooth Emergency Dentist
It is important to know what to do in the case of a lost tooth if the tooth is an adult tooth. A knocked out tooth can be saved if you take care of it properly and see an emergency dentist as soon as possible. Pick the tooth up by the crown, not the roots, rinse it quickly in cold water and place in a container of milk. Go to a dentist immediately, the longer you wait the less the chance that it can be successfully reimplanted.
Atlanta Chipped Tooth Emergency Dentist
If you chip a tooth as a result of serious trauma it is important that you go to the hospital to be evaluated. If you chip a tooth you can repair that tooth. If the part that is chipped off is large enough and can be found, place it in a container of cold water and bring it to the dentist immediately. Tooth bonding can repair a chipped tooth even if this part is missing.
Atlanta Severe Toothache Emergency Dentist
If you are experiencing chronic toothache pain do not wait to see the dentist. Waiting will only allow the issue causing the pain to grow worse. There are many different causes for toothache pain. Cavities are a common cause of pain but they can often occur without pain. If you are experiencing sever pain it is possible that the cavity has reached the pulp of the tooth, causing an infection. This can cause extreme pain and unfortunately, to save the tooth root canal therapy may be necessary. The Atlanta Dental Group PC has worked hard to make sure we can see and treat our patients as well as new patients as quickly as possible
A large percentage of general dentists offer emergency dental services but it is often difficult to fit a patient into their established schedule as soon as possible. In emergency dentistry it is important to treat the pain as well as the problem as quickly as possible, and this often involves temporary solutions so that the patient can resume their life quickly. Unfortunately this means the patient must return when it is more convenient to get a more permanent solution. Of course the first step to getting dental emergency services is finding a dental emergency dentist in your area.
We offer emergency dental services at the Atlanta Dental Group PC but we are not a 24 hour dental emergency clinic. We do offer extended care hours so that we can accommodate emergencies late in the day. Unfortunately not all emergencies happen during the day, accidents can happen and if they happen after hours and require immediate medical attention, do not delay. Though it may be difficult to find one, chances are there is a 24 hour dentist in your area.
