What are some circumstances that may require emergency dentistry?
A few common incidents that can deem emergency dentistry necessary is when one or more teeth are cracked, broken, or removed from the mouth entirely. Some triggers for these circumstances can be from a fall, biting on a resistant piece of food, or an injury from playing a sport. If you are concerned about a broken, cracked, or missing tooth, contact us today and meet with Dr. Hogan to discuss your emergency dental repair.
What can I do if a damaged or missing tooth is drawing blood?
If you are experiencing a dental emergency that is drawing blood, we recommend applying a cold, wet compress to the area. This may ease bleeding and pain before your emergency appointment.
When is tooth replacement appropriate in an emergency dentistry scenario?
If you haven’t lost a significant amount of bone as a result of an injury, Dr. Hogan can replace the tooth immediately with a dental restorative implant. In the event that a drastic amount of bone is lost, Dr. Hogan will create and administer a temporary replacement as a fixed restorative solution is constructed.
When can I expect results from emergency dentistry?
Depending on the severity of the damage will determine if emergency dentistry repair may be necessary. In some cases, a minor crack in a tooth may not require urgent dental care. If you have experienced an accident and are concerned for your dental health, contact Dr. Hogan at your earliest convenience.
