Same Day Dental Service
Dental emergencies can take place without a warning. Think of an accidentally broken tooth or perhaps a sharp pain in the tooth. Any delay in addressing these issues can lead to unnecessary complications, not to mention the fact that you need to bear excruciating pain. This is the exact reason why we offer same day dental service. As your trusted dental provider, we certainly need to be there when you need us the most.
When do you need same day dentist appointments?
While regular and stringent dental care can reduce the need for same day dental appointments, but accidents can happen at any time.
Types of issues that call for same day dental appointments include:
Excruciating pain caused by a severely infected wisdom tooth.
2. Bleeding Gums
While gum disease develops over a period of time, the initial symptoms may be silent. You could experience swelling in the gums and shooting pain at the later stages. The condition cannot be left untreated as it can spread to the bones and even affect the bloodstream. In such cases it can even lead to heart disease.
3. Tooth abscess
A tooth abscess is a result of pus being formed and is usually accompanied by fever and swelling. Left untreated it can cause complications that can even be life threatening.
Excruciating pain in the tooth necessitates immediate dental attention.
5. Broken or Knocked-out Tooth
If you have met with an accident that has caused the tooth to dislodge, immediate attention is necessary.
6. Broken Prosthetics
In case your braces, crown or denture is broken or damaged, you need to attend it without any delay.
What you can expect at your emergency or same day dental appointment?
When you schedule a same day dental appointment, we will ensure that we check your insurance benefits in advance so that you can get treatment without any delay.
The dentist will review your medical history and also understand your symptoms. A dental exam will next be undertaken to understand the exact issue. This may involve the use of diagnostic tools such as a dental x-ray. The options available to treat the dental emergency will be discussed with you. Depending on the nature of the issue, it is possible that you would need to come for a follow-up appointment while the immediate issue is addressed in this visit.

3. Is severe toothache an emergency?
Yes, if it is causing you debilitating pain and is getting in the way of your day-to-day activity, it is only prudent to have it checked as soon as possible.
4. What happens at an emergency dental appointment?
It is best that while seeking the same day dental appointment you let the dentist know the issue, so they can be prepared in advance. Once you arrive the dentist will examine the use and offer medication or anesthesia, as per the case. They may either treat the issue immediately or do a temporary fix and you may need to come back for a permanent solution. The dentist will also offer follow-up care instructions.
5. Can I save a knocked-out tooth?
Yes. To do so, remember to pick up the tooth by the crown & not the root. Gently rinse it in water. If possible, reposition the tooth in the socket, immediately. If that is not possible, put it in a bowl of milk so as to ensure that the tooth is kept moist. Ensure you bring the tooth with you to your emergency appointment at the earliest. Ideally it is best to see a doctor within 30 minutes of the injury.
6. Will I be given sedation during my emergency appointment?
Yes. Depending on the nature of the issue, you will be offered sedation for pain-relief and reducing discomfort.
7. Will I require a follow up visit?
Depending on the dental issue, it is quite possible that you may be required to make a follow-up visit after the urgent pain relief has been administered.
8. Why are regular check-ups important?
Regular dental appointments ensure that issues are caught early before they become serious. With digital x-rays, issues that are not visible to the naked eye are also caught.
9. Will you accept payment from my insurance company?
Yes. However, you need to know that different dental plans have varied coverage and that different dental plans may cover some, and not all of the cost of dental care.
