Benefits of Emergency Dentistry

A dental emergency is typically the result of trauma or injury to the face. Knowing what to do during a dental emergency can make the difference between saving and losing a tooth. Most dental emergencies require swift action and an immediate appointment. At Northview Family Dental, we always leave time available for emergency appointments. The following information will help you take the necessary steps before you receive emergency treatment.

Immediate Pain Relief
Emergency dentistry offers rapid relief from intense dental pain caused by issues like severe toothaches, broken teeth, or infections. Quick access to professional care ensures that patients don't have to endure prolonged discomfort, allowing them to resume normal activities with minimized pain.

Prevent Complications
Timely intervention helps prevent minor dental issues from escalating into more complex and serious problems. Addressing emergencies promptly can mitigate the risk of infections spreading, fractures worsening, or conditions deteriorating, ultimately reducing the need for extensive treatments in the future.

Preservation of Oral Health
By providing urgent care when unexpected dental problems arise, this contributes to maintaining overall oral health. Prompt treatments not only alleviate immediate issues but also contribute to long-term wellbeing, preventing potential issues that could arise if emergencies are left untreated.

Restored Function and Aesthetics
Dental emergencies can disrupt daily activities like eating, speaking, and smiling. Emergency dentistry restores these functions by repairing or treating the underlying problem, allowing patients to regain their confidence and quality of life quickly. These interventions often result in improved aesthetics as well.

What an amazing dental experience. They came highly recommended, and exceeded all expectations. I have seen them on 3 separate visits, and have interacted with many different professionals here. To a person they have all been extraordinary. I trust their quality of work, and kindness of service. I feel like I am in good hands with Northview Family Dental.

Not many people enjoy going to the dentist. However, this place has a kind, friendly, and welcoming staff. I can't overstate how nice and awesome everyone was. My teeth needed a lot of work and they were very kind in helping me fix my smile. I am really happy with the service and care they provided to me. I feel like I got my smile back. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a professional and awesome staff who will take care of your teeth while helping you feel at ease. I was not disappointed. Thank you again.

Cutting edge technology, super friendly staff, knowledgeable and affordable. They fixed an issue I was having for about 10 years in less than 15 minutes. Other dentists had refused to help, but these guys said it was absolutely doable and did it on the spot with no appointment. Doc Martin was amazing. 10/10 recommend!

Reasons for Emergency Dentistry

A broken filling is a minor and fairly common emergency. If you notice a broken or dislodged filling, be sure to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. A broken filling will put your tooth at risk of developing further decay. During your appointment, Dr. Leale will replace the filling to improve the structure and seal off the area from harmful bacteria.
If you or a family member knocks out a permanent tooth, there are a few steps you should take to save the tooth. The most important thing you can do is keep the tooth moist at all times. If possible, put the tooth back in the socket. You can also place the tooth in a small container of water or milk. Milk is preferred. When handling the tooth always hold it from the crown, never the root. Do not remove or scrub off any attached tissue fragments. You have the best chance of saving the tooth if you receive treatment within the hour.
If you chip or break a tooth, the first thing you should do is collect all the pieces. Next, you should immediately rinse out your mouth with warm water to clean the area. While a chipped tooth may not immediately constitute a dental emergency, it may worsen over time. We may suggest dental bonding or a dental crown to improve the aesthetics and function of the tooth.
Significant pain is one of the biggest indicators that you may be in the midst of a dental emergency. Trauma and injuries as the result of sporting and other physical activities are easily preventable with a mouthguard. If you do experience trauma, you can reduce the swelling with a cold compress. Pain that seems to appear out of nowhere may be the result of tooth decay or infection. Severe toothaches may require a restorative treatment, such as a root canal.
An abscess is typically the result of a bacterial infection near the root of a tooth. This is a serious condition that can damage your surrounding teeth or soft tissues when left untreated. If you are diagnosed with an abscess, it must be drained as soon as possible to remove the infection. In many cases, the infection is the result of decay within a tooth that spreads outside of the root. Once we remove the abscess, you may need a root canal to fully restore your oral health.
Excessive bleeding is often the result of soft-tissue injuries. Soft tissue injuries include those to the tongue, cheeks, lips, and gums. To control the bleeding, you can rinse your mouth with a salt-water solution and place a moist gauze pad to the bleeding area. You can control the pain with an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as Advil or Ibuprofen. If the bleeding does not stop, be sure to schedule your appointment as soon as possible.
