Emergency Dentistry

Dental Problems Don’t Always Respect Your Schedule

A dental emergency could happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. A simple fall could result in a broken tooth, someone could get hurt playing sports, a door could open in your face — and it’s unlikely that an oral injury will fall neatly in line with your regular dental appointments. That’s why The Exchange Dental Group offers emergency dental care, including same-day treatment for dental emergencies that happen during business hours.

Why Choose The Exchange Dental Group for Emergency Dental Care

When you experience a dental emergency, time is of the essence. Delaying treatment can exacerbate the issue and lead to further complications. At The Exchange Dental Group, we prioritize emergency cases and strive to see patients promptly, often on the same day. Our goal is to get you out of pain fast and provide you with the care you need to address the dental emergency effectively. Take it from a couple of our satisfied emergency dentistry patients:

Common Dental Emergencies We Can Help With

At The Exchange Dental Care, we are fully equipped to handle various dental emergencies with expertise and compassion, including:

1. Severe Toothache

Experiencing a severe toothache can be excruciating and disruptive to your daily life. Our dental experts are skilled at identifying the underlying cause of the pain, whether it’s due to decay, infection, or other dental issues. We provide prompt relief and recommend appropriate treatments to address the source of the toothache and restore your comfort.

2. Chipped Tooth (Especially in the Front)

A chipped tooth, especially if it’s in a visible area, can be distressing and impact your self-confidence. Our experienced dentists offer various cosmetic and restorative solutions to repair chipped front teeth, such as dental bonding, veneers, or crowns. We aim to restore the natural appearance and function of your tooth, helping you smile confidently again.

3. Broken or Cracked Tooth

A broken or cracked tooth requires immediate attention to prevent further damage and potential infections. Our skilled team evaluates the extent of the damage and recommends suitable treatments, which may include dental bonding, dental crowns, or root canal therapy, depending on the severity of the fracture.

4. Facial Trauma/Injury

Facial trauma or injury to the mouth can lead to a range of dental issues, including broken teeth, jaw fractures, and soft tissue injuries. Our emergency dental care team is well-versed in managing facial trauma cases and will work efficiently to address any immediate concerns and initiate appropriate treatment plans for a full recovery.

5. Tooth Knocked Out

A knocked-out tooth requires urgent dental care to maximize the chances of successful reimplantation. If a tooth is knocked out, carefully handle it by the crown (not the root), rinse it gently, and try to reinsert it back into the socket if possible. If not, place it in milk or saliva and seek immediate dental care. Our emergency dental team will strive to reimplant the tooth if feasible or discuss suitable tooth replacement options like dental implants or bridges.

6. Abscess

A dental abscess is a painful infection that can form around the root of a tooth or in the surrounding gum tissue. It requires prompt evaluation and treatment to prevent the infection from spreading. Our skilled dentists will drain the abscess, provide appropriate antibiotics, and address the underlying cause to restore oral health.

7. Loose or Dislodged Tooth

A loose or dislodged tooth may be a result of trauma or advanced gum disease. Our dental professionals will assess the tooth’s stability and determine the best course of action. Depending on the situation, treatments may involve splinting the tooth, gum disease management, or tooth extraction.

8. Excessive Bleeding in the Mouth

Uncontrolled bleeding in the mouth can occur due to dental trauma, gum disease, or other oral health issues. Our emergency dental team will promptly address the bleeding, control it, and provide necessary treatments to resolve the underlying cause.
