State of Minnesota Emergency Dentists by City
Walk in Dentist Minnesota
You have an emergency. You wouldn’t have come to this site otherwise. Well, we are going to make a promise to you. Oh, and just so you know this isn’t going to be one of those promises that we
say and don’t deliver on. We are going to help you find an emergency dentist in Minnesota (preferably one that is very close to your hometown.) What is an emergency dentist? 24 hour dentists are the best thing around for dental service when you have an after hours emergency: They can be defined in many different ways but for the purposes of this site we are going to define an emergency dentist as
A practice willing to take on anyone with a dental emergency.
A practice that stays open late and sometimes open all night (24 hours.)
A dentist that is open on the weekends.
But before we can start getting into that we need to make sure that you are prepared for your dental visit. There is nothing worse than going into a dental practice unprepared and we felt the best way to do that was to teach you a little about the state you live in.
“Trying to treat your own dental emergencies is never a good idea. I once had a patient recement a crown with super glue. Needless to say, we had to cut the crown off and make a new one. If the patient had waited to see us, we could have simply re-cemented the existing crown.”
Minnesota Oral Health
Minnesota is known for a lot of things:
- The Mall Of America
- The Vikings
- Paul Bunyan
However, have you ever stopped and asked yourself if they are known for their oral health? It is kind of a strange question we will admit. When you hear about Minnesota probably the last thing you think of are your teeth but we can tell you that by looking at statistics Minnesota has an extremely strong oral care system. Take a look at some of these major categories that they are doing very well in:
- Percentage of adults who have visited a dental clinic within the past year, 78.9% (Nation- 69.7%)
- Percentage of adults who have had their teeth cleaned in the past year, 77.5% (Nation- 68.5%)
- 80% of children are reported to have no oral problems (Nation- 73.3%)
Preparing For Your Dental Visit
So, how can you exactly prepare for something like a dental visit. You obviously have an emergency and need to find a dentist but trust us when we say that you don’t want to go in blind. No, you need to make absolutely certain that you are prepared. Here is a little checklist we put together to make sure you are ready:
- Make sure you know exactly what is hurting you, (chipped tooth, broken tooth, etc.)
- The best way to prevent an emergency is definitely to brush and floss but if you have an emergency then you are way past that.
- Whatever you do don’t try to fix your emergency on your own.
- Dental insurance is not required but it is HIGHLY recommended.
We want to take a moment and address that last point. Dental insurance isn’t required to go to the dentist but we want to make it clear that some dental emergencies can cost a lot to fix. With dental insurance you won’t have to worry so much about the price. Without it though your life can potentially be ruined financially for a while. This is why we always refer our visitors to EHealthInsurance if they don’t have insurance or are thinking of getting a plan.
