Injuries happen, which is exactly why our skilled dentists provide emergency care at our practices in the DFW area. A few typical dental injuries are broken, chipped, and teeth that have been knocked out. Incidents may happen when chewing food that is too hard for your teeth to manage, an accident when playing sports, a bad spill, or a blunt-force trauma. You might or might not feel discomfort, but it is important to get your mouth assessed following an accident to look for any damage. At Ah! Dentistry, we will constantly make your dental crisis a priority by supplying effective care along with methods to protect against future issues.
At times, you will require emergency attention (a restoration or tooth falls out, you're in pain, or have a cracked tooth). In other circumstances, you might be uncertain how fast you require treatment (as an example, a loose tooth or recovery, an injury that does not result in bleeding or pain, or a chip in a tooth). When you have a trauma to your mouth, such as your gums, teeth, and jaw, it is ideal to get in touch with our office. Our team of dental professionals will be able to help you determine how quickly to come in, methods to control pain, and also how to keep your tooth or dental restoration. Even seemingly minor injuries may cause larger conditions if not handled as soon as possible; therefore, it is ideal to contact our office immediately.
What To Expect
Each dental crisis is different so we will thoroughly evaluate your problem prior to making a diagnosis during your consultation. Digital images might be necessary to look for unseen conditions. After we understand the degree of your problem, we will speak with you about your options and develop your treatment program. You might require one or multiple procedures to restore your oral health.
According to your issue, our dental team can offer you directions that will help you recover following your procedure at Ah! Dentistry. We can give you a prescription for pain medication or antibiotics, which should be used as directed. We may also tell you if you should make an appointment for a different treatment or a follow-up examination. After your dental crisis is handled, you might speak about methods to prevent potential accidents, including a custom-made mouth guard that should be worn during contact sports. You must continue to adhere to a daily home oral hygiene routine with flossing and brushing to help keep your gums and teeth healthy and strong. During your yearly dental examination at Ah! Dentistry, we will continue to keep an eye on your recovery progress.
For patients with dental insurance, we'll contact your insurer to find out your benefits after your treatment program has been established. For those without insurance, Ah! Dentistry takes multiple payment methods and we can help you get medical financing to help make your care easier to afford. Do not delay handling a dental crisis due to concerns over price because waiting could lead to larger and more serious issues.
