Same-Day Treatment for Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies often begin with a broken restoration, trauma, or discomfort. For many patients, their first concern is wondering how quickly they can schedule a dental appointment to address the issue. Pain and uncertainty can cause unnecessary stress. That is why we strive to treat dental emergencies quickly, comfortably, and compassionately so you can get back to your life, your job, and your schedule.
What Causes a Dental Emergency?
Dental emergencies occur when an unexpected dental condition arises. Sometimes you can pinpoint the cause – such as a fractured tooth or a sports accident. In other cases, unexplained pain is the culprit. Some of the most common dental emergencies include:
- Broken teeth
- Damaged restorations
- Sore gums
- Pain with pressure
- Extreme sensitivity to temperature
- Trauma from an accident
- Tooth loss
Calling our Seaford dental office as quickly as possible is helpful. Dental pain rarely resolves on its own and can potentially worsen over time. Even if you have doubts about the seriousness of your emergency, we can ask the proper questions to assess your condition and determine if an appointment is necessary. Prompt treatment can prevent lost time at work and lost sleep due to pain.
Your Dental Emergency Appointment
In order to diagnose your condition, we will ask a series of questions, perform a visual exam, and often take an x-ray to gather more information. Once one of our experienced dentists makes a diagnosis, we will recommend treatment to restore your health. In many cases, we can treat your condition right away. In other cases, we may provide palliative treatment to make you comfortable and stabilize your condition until treatment can be performed.
New Patients Welcome
Are you new in town or looking for a friendly neighborhood dental practice that treats you like an individual? We welcome new patients to our office, even in the event of an emergency. Dental emergencies often occur at inconvenient times, and being in between dental offices may leave you without a place to go. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to LRK Dental, where you can have comfortable, gentle, world-class dental care in a friendly and professional environment.
Once we address your emergency, we will welcome you back to our office for a comprehensive dental exam where one of our dentists will identify any potential dental conditions and recommend the appropriate treatment so that you can avoid dental emergencies in the future!
