Hopefully, you never experience oral health trouble so severe that you need to schedule an emergency dental visit. While no one wants to arrange an urgent dental appointment, having access to emergency care is beneficial. You can have a problem examined and treated before it grows worse, which can potentially save a tooth that could have been lost. At our Upton, MA dentist’s office, patients who suffer from injuries or severe pain can make contact with us to book an emergency dental appointment. At this appointment, your tooth can be closely evaluated to determine what is wrong, and we can move forward with treatment to restore your smile and oral health.
Some Problems Call For Treatment As Soon As Possible
It can be difficult to ignore certain issues with your oral health. For example, you may have a problem with a severe toothache that interferes with your quality of life. You could also experience physical damage that leaves a tooth chipped, broken, or even dislodged! These situations can call for prompt attention. Having urgent care ensures that you spend less time feeling discomfort. It also ensures that a problem is evaluated and treated before the condition of the tooth worsens. In some situations, prompt care can be needed in order to save a tooth that could have otherwise been lost!
Arriving For Your Emergency Dental Work
Our first goal when we begin an emergency appointment is to find out what condition your tooth is in, and what can be done about your discomfort. After this initial work, we can determine what sort of care might be necessary. Once this is done, we can treat the tooth accordingly and make plans to restore it with a dental crown.
Unfortunately, some dental emergencies are so severe that a tooth cannot be saved. Under these circumstances, we can perform an extraction so that a tooth is safely removed, and no complications occur. After this, we can make plans to restore your smile through the appropriate prosthetic dental work.
Can My Smile Be Restored During Emergency Treatment?
Your treatment after an emergency can conclude with you enjoying a fully restored, confident smile. Restorative dentistry can lead to smile improvements, as your tooth can be restored with a lifelike dental crown. Care can also be taken to restore your appearance if you need a dental prosthetic. If a review determines that a damaged tooth does not require restorative work, we can discuss hiding chips and cracks by performing cosmetic dental work.
