When Dental Trouble Is An Emergency

You may be surprised during a dental exam by the news that you have a cavity. Problems with decay can form before you are aware that something is wrong; having early feedback about an issue like this is just one reason why you should make general dental checkups a priority. With that said, there are also times when problems will arise between visits that are difficult for you to ignore. Unfortunately, these issues can make a visit with your dentist a high priority due to their effect on your appearance and well-being. Our Seattle, WA dentist’s office wants our patients to know that we are here to help when they experience dental emergencies!

Some Oral Health Problems Call For Care On Short Notice

If you experience a tooth injury or find yourself worried by the amount of pain you feel in a tooth, know that you can reach out to us to schedule emergency dental work. By providing care on short notice, we can make it easier for you to see someone before an already serious problem worsens. As a result, you can have the matter dealt with in a timely fashion and avoid complications. Because our restorative services can include treatments that preserve the appearance of teeth, we can help you without compromising your smile.

Arranging Emergency Dental Work

At an emergency dental appointment, your dentist will see to it that the source of your trouble is properly managed. To do this, we can carefully evaluate you to see what kind of oral health trouble you are in. For some dental injuries, treatment can be surprisingly conservative, as we may be able to help by hiding damage through cosmetic care. However, some injuries can require more advanced services. In these cases, and in situations where you have advanced decay and a possible infection, we can proceed with restorative dental work.

What Does It Take To Fully Restore An Injured Or Infected Tooth?

What will it take to fully restore a tooth that requires more advanced treatment? If we have concerns about an infection or internal damage, we will need to proceed with root canal therapy. This service deals with endodontic trouble. In other words, it treats problems that can arise within your tooth structure. To provide advanced protection, we can place dental crowns on teeth to keep them safe and preserve your appearance.
