Emergency dental services are exactly what they sound like. Dental emergencies are oral health problems that can be life-threatening or very uncomfortable. Often, treatment for them can’t wait until the next dental checkup or even the next available time slot of a general dentist.
An emergency dentist can first prescribe pain relievers, anti-inflammatory drugs, and antibiotics to reduce troubling symptoms and eliminate any infection. From there, they can evaluate the situation and offer or recommend further dental treatment, like dental fillings or even tooth extraction. Some dental emergencies may need a dental specialist to come in. For example, an oral surgeon may have to deal with complex dental emergencies requiring tooth extraction.
In most cases, a general dentist can provide emergency dental services. The only problem is that your trusted general dentist may not be available at all hours of the day. Most general dentist offices take the weekends off. When you’re dealing with a dental emergency, time is of the essence to prevent the situation from worsening. Some emergency rooms or urgent care clinics have emergency dentists as part of their staff to help patients with immediate dental care needs.
Some general dentists get additional training to help them deal with emergencies. These dentists may offer emergency dental services and specific general dental services, especially if they share facilities with other dental professionals who can take over their appointments or provide emergency services when necessary.
Nowadays, most general dentists provide emergency dental services alongside other services at their offices. Some may even be called into the ER of nearby hospitals when they’re needed.
