Emergency or After Hours Dentistry
What Is An Emergency Dentist?
AN EMERGENCY DENTIST is an oral healthcare professional that treats patients that need immediate care, because accidents and oral injuries don’t always fall neatly in the timeframe of normal practice hours.
What Does Emergency Dentistry Treat?
Some of the reasons why patients seek emergency dentists include:
- Cracked Teeth
- Broken Teeth
- Abscessed Teeth
- Loose Teeth
- Severe Tooth Pain
- Knocked Out Teeth
Many of these problems can’t wait, which is why it’s critical to contact an emergency dentist as soon as they happen, day or night, weekday or weekend. Many emergency practices are open 24/7, and if they don’t have a dentist immediately available, they will do their best to see you within 24 hours. They will also give you instructions to maintain your oral health until you can see an emergency dentist.
