We know that dental emergencies happen when you least expect them. That’s why we make urgent situations our priority, so you can feel relief as soon as possible. Your emergency dental visit will consist of two appointments, an initial exam, followed up with a second appointment for treatment. We do not guarantee same-day treatment, as the length of the appointment, and treatment cannot be determined until you are seen by the dentist in your initial exam. A treatment plan will be created, and the dentist will review your options with you to determine the most suitable way to proceed.
Dental emergencies can take many different forms, but any emergency must be addressed as soon as possible to limit further consequences that would be detrimental to your oral and overall health. You might be wondering if a dental issue that you’re experiencing is an emergency or not. If you experience any of the following, then contact Affinity Dental right away for an emergency appointment.
The best way to handle dental emergencies is to prevent them from happening in the first place. Of course, our first recommendation is to practice good oral hygiene by brushing twice daily, flossing before bed and rinsing your mouth out with mouthwash. Other ways to protect yourself against experiencing a dental emergency includes wearing a mouthguard while playing sports, being careful about how you bite into hard and tough foods like candy and steak, and making sure not to chew on non-food objects that could damage your teeth and gums.
Your initial appointment will consist of a spec exam of the area of concern, as well as x-rays as needed. Following the exam, the dentist will create a treatment plan and review your options with you. If there are signs of infection or you are experiencing discomfort and pain, the dentist will prescribe medications as needed, such as anti-biotics or pain relievers. As we do not guarantee same-day treatment, we will schedule your treatment accordingly.
Following up from your initial emergency appointment, your treatment will begin as previously planned by your dentist. Some outcomes for treatment may include white fillings, extractions, root canals, etc. We understand that emergencies happen when you least expect them, if needed, speak with your dentist regarding a payment plan.
