When Should I Seek Emergency Dental Care?
I’m not sure if I need to seek out an emergency dental office near me. When should I contact your emergency dental office?
You should contact us for emergency dental care if you experience one of the following:
Broken or Fractured Teeth
If you have a cracked, fractured or broken tooth, call us for an appointment so that we can arrange an appointment for you. Emergency dentists are capable of diagnosing and treating the tooth so you do not experienced increased pain or sensitivity while eating or drinking.
A knocked-out tooth is scary, but it may be possible to save the tooth. If you can locate the tooth, hold it by the crown, rinse the tooth in warm water and gently place it back in the socket. Call us for an emergency appointment during office hours.
Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure
You should not ignore severe toothache pain or pressure, especially if you have an earache or fever. Even if your toothache subsides, it will return until the underlying issue is addressed. One of our emergency dentists can diagnose and treat you to relieve the pain.
Minor tooth sensitivity is not an emergency; however, sudden, acute sensitivity can signal a tooth fracture.
Dental Decay (Cavities)
Left untreated, dental decay leads to large cavities that can cause severe pain. Emergency dentists in Westfield can provide pain relief and will work hard to save your natural tooth.
An abscessed tooth is one that is infected, in addition to being painful. Contact our emergency dental care office during our regular business hours and will try our best to have you come in that same day. Any delay could lead to serious complications.
Lost or Loose Fillings
If you have lost or loose fillings, call our office and we will try to get you in quickly. The empty space in your tooth leaves the tooth weaker and vulnerable to damage.
Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations
Broken crowns or lost restorations need emergency dental services because the affected teeth are susceptible to damage. Our dentist can offer a temporary or permanent solution.
Orthodontic Pain or Injuries
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort from metal braces or any other orthodontic device, we can help you with the pain and make any necessary adjustments to keep you pain free.
Tooth Enamel Worn by Teeth Grinding
If you grind your teeth while sleeping, you can end up with tooth enamel worn by teeth grinding. Our dentist can fit you with a night guard to save your remaining tooth enamel.
A toothache and sinus pressure may signal impacted wisdom teeth or an oral infection. Emergency dentists can quickly rule out these two conditions and offer corrective treatment.
What Should I Do if I Believe My Problem is More Serious?
I’m worried that I have a more serious problem. Do I wait or call 911?
There are certain dental emergencies that cannot wait. Please go straight to the nearest emergency room or call 911 if you have:
