Another common emergency is painful partially erupted wisdom teeth. Treatment doesn’t always have to be teeth removal. Application of a special dressing along with irrigation and strong mouth wash is enough most of the time. If the problem persists and teeth aren’t erupting normally or they don’t have enough room, then wisdom teeth should be removed.
If you are scared of treatment, just ask for sedation rather than delaying your treatment. Dentists use many different types of sedation – oral, IV conscious sedation or even general sedation.
If you lost a crown or chipped a tooth, immediate treatment is available in advanced clinics, including emergency clinics. Advanced technology has permitted a lot of wonderful, aesthetic, immediate treatment to solve your problem in one session.
I created The Dental Emergency Room five years ago. At the time, it sounded scary to a lot of dentists and patients, but immediately many realized that it was the most needed type of dentistry, especially when it comes to immediate dental access and support to broader emergency rooms. Treating dental emergencies requires a lot of experience and dedication. Usually it is harder work for dentists, but it is truly a huge addition to dental health.
