Best Candidates

A number of scenarios may lead to the need for emergency dental care. While some situations obviously require fast, efficient care (such as oral trauma), other types of damage may not be as apparent. Please seek care right away, even if you are not experiencing any discomfort, as there may be hidden damage or concerns that could lead to swelling, bleeding, or other serious effects. Oral conditions calling for emergency care commonly include:

  • Knocked-out teeth (avulsed)
  • Unexplained swelling or bleeding
  • Tooth or jaw pain
  • Blunt-force trauma
  • Soft tissue lacerations or bites
  • Abscessed teeth
  • Loose or broken fillings
  • Damaged or dislodged crowns or bridges

Our team is extremely accommodating and will work to treat your emergency as soon as possible. If you or a family member do happen to experience a dental emergency, get in touch with our office immediately. A member of our caring team will guide you on how to best manage your emergency situation until you arrive at PDADental.

What To Expect

Upon arrival at our practice, our team will quickly assess your situation and determine your unique emergency needs. Digital x-rays may be taken to evaluate for any hidden damage to the tooth roots or jawbone. After an assessment, our team will talk with you about our findings and review your options for care. Whenever possible, we do our best to treat your needs the same day. Some situations, however, may require follow-up visits to fully restore your oral health. If you have significant inflammation or bleeding, for instance, we may allow you to heal for a couple of days before providing care. Our main goal in an emergency situation is to get you out of any discomfort and resolve any damage to your smile as quickly and comprehensively as we can.

Recovery

At the end of your dental emergency visit, our dentists will review instructions on the best way to care for your mouth and injury as you heal. Depending on your needs and level of discomfort, a prescription for antibiotics or pain medication may be provided. The use of cold compresses for any facial or jaw swelling and eating a diet of soft foods for a few days may be suggested. A member of our team can also offer tips on how to avoid oral injuries in the future, such as avoiding ice crunching and other parafunctional habits and wearing a protective mouth guard when playing sports. Maintaining your oral hygiene each day through home care and attending routine dental cleaning and exam visits is essential for keeping your mouth in ideal condition following your emergency. We will continue to evaluate your oral health and healing during each of your subsequent visits to PDADental.

Insurance Coverage

Insurance coverage for dental emergency care may vary, according to individual plans and companies. But even if your visit is not fully covered by insurance, we still want you to get the emergency treatment that you need. PDADental is pleased to accept a range of flexible payment options, including low-interest financing plans, and will work closely with you to find an option suitable for you.
