Ideally, every tooth-related problem can wait until we can schedule a convenient appointment to take care of the issue. Life is usually anything but convenient, however, and toothaches can appear out of nowhere. Toothaches can be so bad that they cause you to be unable to eat, drink, or even concentrate. Waiting until your dentist has an opening to get you in isn’t going to work. Not only is it unrealistic to ask you to wait in pain until your dentist is available, but toothaches can cause more serious problems if not treated immediately. Mesa Dental offers emergency dental services for those tooth problems that just can’t wait. Below are some other reasons why you may need to visit us as soon as possible.
1. Lost a Tooth
We aren’t talking baby teeth here. If you’ve had a tooth knocked out during sports or some other activity, the dentists at Mesa Dental may be able to put the tooth back. Make sure you don’t touch the root of the tooth when transporting it to us, and place the tooth in a cup of saliva or milk. If the tooth dries out before it reaches us then we may not be able to put it back in the socket.
2. Lost a Crown
If your crown or filling falls out, it is important to get it replaced or put back in as soon as possible. Leaving your tooth open to decay can cause serious problems if left untreated. If you wait too long, extensive treatments may be necessary in order to place the crown back on the tooth. Simply putting the crown or filling back as soon as they fall out is a much better option that waiting too long and needing more invasive treatments later.
These are just a few of the reasons why you may need to call an emergency dentist in Mesa AZ. You can contact us today to find out the other emergency services we offer. If anything happens to your teeth we know how painful that can be, and it is imperative to the health of your teeth to see a dentist as soon as possible. Don’t ignore pain, it’s your body trying to tell you something is wrong. And definitely don’t put off treatment until a more convenient time is available. The longer you wait the worse things get, in terms of pain, how many treatments you may need, and especially cost.
