“Emergencies cost a lot, mostly because they were unplanned and you don’t have spare money lying around to pay for them on short notice. Insurance can help but it won’t pay for services after the fact. That would be like buying an auto insurance policy while you are involved in a car accident. Clearly it won’t pay to fix your car after the accident has already happened.
Dental insurance is something that you can plan by setting aside a little money each month. But you have to do your homework in advance. It is like having a rainy-day fund for your teeth.”

Preparing For Your Ohio Emergency Dental Clinic Visit
When you visit an emergency dentist in Ohio, it will be similar to visiting your primary dental care provider.
It will be important to gather any recent dental x-rays that you might have and any recent medical and dental records. These records 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.
Also, call ahead to speak with the staff to see if they can accept your payment method and dental insurance. You will also want to set up any necessary payment plans if you don’t have dental insurance.
Let the staff at the emergency dental office know of any allergies to medications you have. This will ensure your dental visit is safe and comfortable for you.
Common 24 Hour Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies are more common than you may think, but each situation is unique. It’s important to visit an emergency dentist quickly before your conditions become worse.
Some common dental emergencies include chipped teeth, abscesses, and broken braces. We’re going to talk through a few of these so you know what to do in case you experience a dental emergency of your own.
Chipping a tooth is a common dental issue that can be easily fixed by an emergency dentist. If you’ve chipped one of your teeth, carefully rinse out your mouth to remove any remaining pieces.
Then, place any broken pieces in a small container of milk to bring to your emergency dentist. You can use a cold compress on the outside of your mouth to reduce swelling and pain as well as place gauze on any area of your mouth that’s bleeding.
An abscess is an infection that occurs in the spaces between the teeth and gums, or around the root of the tooth.
Left untreated, this infection can spread to the bone of the jaw or soft tissues of the mouth. A pimple-like swelling is often an indication of an abscess.
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?
Your dentist may opt to perform a tooth extraction if your tooth is too infected or decayed. 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
It’s important to know whether you should visit an emergency room or emergency dentist when you’ve had any injuries. If there has been any trauma to your head, it’s best to head to the emergency room right away so they can provide you with treatment.
On the other hand, 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.
