Other than practicing daily oral hygiene, it can be impossible to plan for or prevent a dental emergency. For those times when a tooth is knocked out, broken, or causing you intense pain, our team of Ada, MI, emergency dentists are here to help. Most urgent oral problems are time-sensitive so it’s important that you call our Ada dental office ASAP to receive prompt care.
Anytime you have elevated dental discomfort, it’s easy to think it’s an emergency. However, real dental emergencies require immediate attention to reduce severe pain, stop uncontrolled bleeding, and save teeth. For example, a severe toothache is considered an emergency because it could mean there is a dental abscess present. If not treated, an abscess can lead to serious oral and general health problems. A small crack or chip, on the other hand, is not necessarily something that needs to be solved right away. In general, we encourage patients to schedule appointments for any non-urgent dental emergencies during regular office hours.
While you’re still at home, you can try a few different things depending on your dental emergency. These methods will hopefully reduce swelling, bleeding, or pain and increase the chance that your tooth will be saved when you come into our office.
Our emergency dentists in Ada, MI, are here to help if you are experiencing severe pain and discomfort. Please don’t hesitate to call Norman Family Dentistry at (616) 676-9177 and request an appointment if you need immediate assistance.
