- The dentist should preferably be open 24 hours a day.
- The dentist has to be willing to take YOUR emergency.
How to Prepare for Your California Emergency Dental Clinic Visit
Emergency dental clinics provide x-rays, fillings, and routine cleanings much like traditional dental offices.
When you schedule your appointment, check to make sure the dentist office accepts your dental insurance and payment method. Speak with the staff to set up a payment plan if necessary if you do not have insurance.
Also, be sure to gather any recent dental x-rays that you might have and any recent medical and dental records. This is important because it will help your dentist to determine the best treatment for your dental emergency. Also, try to arrive at the appointment at least 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork.
If you have any anxiety about the dentist, let the staff know so they can accommodate you during your visit.
Common 24 Hour Dental Emergencies
It’s rather common for someone to experience a dental emergency. A cracked or chipped tooth, a lost filling or even broken braces or wires are common dental emergencies that can be treated by Maryland emergency dentists listed on Emergency Dentists USA.
If you experience a dental emergency you should see an emergency dentist for any dental emergency described below.
Knocked out teeth
It can be very painful to have one of your adult teeth knocked out. If this happens to you, first rinse your mouth carefully with water to remove any remaining pieces in your mouth. Then, try locating the knocked out tooth. Only hold this tooth by the crown to avoid any damage being done to the root. Place it in a container of milk to keep the tooth moist until your appointment. If stored properly your dentist will be able to replace your tooth easier.
If you notice you’ve lost one of your fillings, first try locating it and keeping it in a small cup of water. Then, cover the open tooth with dental cement or gauze to keep it protected.
It’s important to keep the open toot protected to help prevent any further damage and so your emergency dentist can easily replace your filling.
Broken or Loose Braces
Broken or loose braces and wires are a common dental emergency, especially when you are chewing gum or other foods that could stick into the braces.
If a wire is causing pain on the cheek or gum, use the eraser end of a pencil to push the wire into a more comfortable position and protect the soft tissues of the mouth. You can also place a bit of orthodontic wax or a cotton ball on the end of the wire to protect the mouth.
Do You Need an Emergency Tooth Extraction?
An emergency tooth extraction might be caused by an infection of the tooth or by decay that has progressed beyond the point where it might be repaired by an emergency dentist. An emergency tooth extraction might also be caused by teeth that crowd the mouth putting pressure on other teeth.
In most cases, your emergency dentist will take an x-ray of the tooth and perform an examination to determine the best way to extract the tooth. He or she will then numb the area with a local anesthetic. A special dental tool is used to remove the tooth from the gum and sometimes the gum is stitched closed.
It’s important to follow any instructions given by your Maryland emergency dentist during this time as full healing does not occur until one to two weeks of the emergency tooth extraction.
Emergency Room Versus Emergency Dentist
If you’ve endured a car accident, sports injury, or fall, you should visit the emergency room to have your injuries assessed and they can provide you with treatment. They can treat any medical condition that requires attention, but if you’ve had a tooth crack or fall out they will generally refer you to an emergency dentist to repair the tooth because emergency rooms are not equipped to deal with dental emergencies.
Visiting an emergency dentist for a broken tooth that does not involve other injuries is your best course of action. Your dentist can evaluate the broken tooth and fix the problem right in their office and it’s generally less expensive and faster than visiting a hospital emergency room.
