What is considered a dental emergency?
If you are experiencing a great amount of dental pain, swelling, or bleeding, you are always welcome to call our office so we can advise. Not every situation requires immediate attention, but we will almost always recommend that you come in right away for the following situations:
- Unbearable Toothache
- Cracked, Broken, or Dislodged Tooth
- Severe Gum Swelling or Bleeding
- Lost Dental Restoration
- Dental Abscess
Should I go to the emergency room or see an emergency dentist?
It is fairly common for patients to visit the hospital for issues that should be treated by a dental professional. If your emergency is tooth, gum, or jaw-related, we recommend calling our office first before you decide what to do. Emergency rooms generally don’t have the expertise or equipment required to take care of dental emergencies, and they often refer patients to an emergency dentist anyway. If you have any other injuries that are more time-sensitive, then you may want to visit the ER first.
Is emergency dental care affordable?
At Vista Ridge Family Dentistry, we strive to make all of our services as affordable as possible, and that includes our emergency services. In many cases, the best thing you can do is to seek immediate treatment and work out the financial details later to prevent your situation from potentially becoming worse and more costly. One emergency exam per year is covered by our membership plan, and we accept payment plans if you need to break up the cost of your care.
