Immediate emergency dental care is important for a lot of reasons. First, you can get relief from the pain and discomfort of your emergency, which can be debilitating. Seeing a dentist right away also helps you avoid further complications, which can save you time and money. You'll also get peace of mind, knowing that your mouth is healthy and that your East Amherst dentist will provide you with the best possible solution for your emergency.
There are a lot of different types of common dental emergencies. Toothaches, for example, are an emergency since they often indicate an infected tooth. Injuries due to oral trauma are also very common, including cracked, loose, and knocked-out teeth.
Problems like damaged or loose dental work also count as emergencies. As a rule, any oral condition that is causing you pain and discomfort qualifies, so if you’re not sure whether or not your issue is an emergency, we recommend contacting us at (716)-221-0042 to discuss your issue with our dental team.
The first thing you should do when you have a dental emergency is call (716)-221-0042 to schedule an appointment with The Ivory Dental Co. Unless you believe your life is at risk, you should not go to the ER. Hospital ERs usually do not offer dental treatment unless you have a very serious condition like a broken jaw.
Once you’ve scheduled an appointment, you can take some steps to help with discomfort. If your mouth is bleeding, use clean gauze or a cotton ball and apply pressure to the area to stop the flow of blood. You can take ibuprofen or a similar over-the-counter medication to help with the pain. Applying an ice pack to the cheek outside the affected area may also help.
Don’t delay. It’s very important to get treatment for dental emergencies ASAP for the best outcome. Some issues, like a knocked-out tooth, must be treated within 1-2 hours to save the tooth. So prioritize coming to The Ivory Dental Co., and see us as soon as you can to get help for your emergency.
Wondering what to expect from your emergency visit in East Amherst, NY? Let’s discuss some of the basics about appointment availability and what will happen at your appointment.
We know that dental emergencies never happen on a set schedule, so we offer same-day appointments, as well as appointments after business hours and weekend visits, in some cases. You can trust us to always be available to serve you.
Once you arrive at our office, Dr. Sweeney will examine you right away. She may also offer numbing or sedation to help with pain, depending on the severity of your emergency. Then, she will immediately make a treatment recommendation. The right treatment depends on your condition. A cracked tooth, for example, may require a root canal and dental crown.
