What is Emergency Dentistry?

What is an Emergency Dental Service?  

Emergency dental services are a type of dental service performed in an emergency. These services can include extractions, fillings, and treatment for tooth pain. These services are designed to prevent further pain, damage to the teeth, and improve the overall oral health of the patient. Dr. Nate Lester, Dr. Luke Owens, and Dr. Hayden Welch at Bear River Dental in Evanston, Wyoming, provide these emergency dental services.

Severe Toothache: A toothache can be excruciatingly painful. The intense throbbing and constant pain can be unbearable and interfere with daily activities. While many over-the-counter medications can help temporarily relieve the pain, it is crucial to seek professional medical attention if the pain persists. The toothache is often associated with an infection causing swelling and pressure on the nerve. Often, Dr. Lester, Dr. Owens, or Dr. Welch will prescribe an antibiotic to kill the infection, which will most likely alleviate the pain in the short term. Once that infection subsides, the doctors at Bear River Dental can provide proper diagnosis and treatment.

Chipped or Broken Tooth: A chipped or broken tooth can be both painful and embarrassing. Depending on the severity of the chip or break, a person may experience sharp pain when consuming hot or cold foods, or even when biting down. A chipped or broken tooth should be addressed by a dentist as soon as possible to minimize any further damage, as well as to help relieve any pain or discomfort. Fortunately, most chipped or broken teeth can be repaired with crowns, bonding, or veneers, restoring the tooth to its natural state.

Knocked-Out Tooth: A knocked-out tooth can be a traumatic experience and a cause of concern. The first thing to do is to find the tooth and rinse it with milk or saline solution, being careful not to touch the root. Then, the tooth should be placed back into the socket as soon as possible and held in place with a wet cloth or gauze. If it cannot be placed back in the socket, it should be put into a milk container or a saline solution and brought to the dentist immediately. Getting to your dentist at Bear River Dental quickly is vital, as the chances of the tooth being saved decrease the longer it is out of the socket.

Lost Crown or Filling: A lost filling or crown can be a very unpleasant experience. It can be very uncomfortable and even painful. Depending on the size and location of the lost filling or crown, it can cause difficulty eating or speaking. If the lost filling or crown is not replaced as soon as possible, it can also lead to further damage to the tooth and even decay. It is essential to contact Bear River Dental as quickly as possible to get the filling or crown replaced and to prevent further damage.

Abscess: An abscess is a painful condition when a pocket of pus forms in a specific body area. It is usually caused by a bacterial infection. When a tooth is abscessed, symptoms can include swelling, redness, heat, pain, and tenderness. Treatment for an abscess typically involves draining the area, in addition to antibiotics to treat the infection. If left untreated, an abscess can spread to other parts of your body and cause serious complications.
