How We Treat Dental Emergencies
- Schedule a same-day appointment and get essential care: When your tooth is in pain, broken or completely knocked-out, you need to call our dental office first so you can schedule an appointment. By getting this out of the way early, you can establish a time and day to get treatment and speak with one of our team members who can help you stabilize your condition before you arrive.
- Get an emergency exam from our dentist: After you arrive, a team member will check you in, bring you to an operatory, and Dr. Kaopua will perform an emergency exam. Digital X-rays may also be captured depending on your symptoms.
- Review findings and learn our recommendations: Once he’s reviewed your symptoms and the current condition of your mouth, Dr. Kaopua can make a recommendation for treatment. He’ll break down the cost estimates and timeline ahead of time so you can make an informed decision on your care.
- Get the care you need and start healing: With the help of our experienced team, we can address your urgent symptoms as soon as possible. Common treatments we may recommend include dental fillings, crowns, root canal therapy, extractions, and other services.
The Most Common Dental Emergencies
Before you get to the dental office, consider our tips for the following types of emergencies below. We are equipped to handle just about any dental emergency you experience. However, it’s always helpful to take certain steps to manage your emergency until you’re able to visit our practice. While there are many types of dental emergencies out there, these are the most common we see at Albright Family Dental.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies
When you’re having a dental emergency, the last thing you should do is put off getting treatment. After all, doing so will only put you at higher risk of needing additional treatment later. When you arrive, we’ll closely examine your mouth and develop a plan that works for you. Depending on the complexity of your treatment, your dental care costs may fluctuate. For example, antibiotics for an oral infection, as opposed to a full-blown root canal, would be cheaper overall. No matter what your costs are, we’ll prioritize getting you out of discomfort and on the right path towards better oral health.
How to Prevent Dental Emergencies
Most dental emergencies occur because of the lack of prevention. By performing your daily at-home oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing, you can prevent most dental disease. You’ll also want to commit to checkups and cleanings every six months as this is the most effective method for catching problems early. Of course, it’s also important to never use your teeth as a tool and always wear a mouthguard if you play contact sports.
