Do You Need Emergency Dental Attention?

I’m not sure if I really need emergency dental care. When should I go to an emergency dental office near me?

You may need to obtain emergency services if you are suffering from any of the following dental conditions and symptoms:

Broken or Fractured Teeth

A broken or cracked tooth is a common problem seen by emergency dentists in Capitol Heights, and it requires urgent care to prevent an infection.

Knocked-Out Tooth

A knocked-out tooth is very distressing and painful to experience. Often caused by blunt-force trauma, such as from a car accident or sports mishap, it’s important to get to an emergency dental office as soon as possible.

Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure

You may experience severe pain or pressure when chewing, or pain that lingers after you eat. A sharp pain may be attributed to tooth decay, a loose filling, or a cracked tooth. Pain that lingers could be a sign of infection.

Tooth Sensitivity

You may experience tooth sensitivity and pain because of a crack or chip in the tooth. One of our emergency dentists can fix this problem you and stop your dental discomfort.

Dental Decay (Cavities)

If you’re experiencing pain from dental decay, don’t hesitate to seek treatment. When dental decay is left unchecked, you may one day find yourself needing an emergency tooth extraction. Our emergency dentists can assess the cause of your tooth pain and create a plan of action to provide the relief you need.

Abscessed Tooth

An abscessed tooth is a painful and serious bacterial infection that needs immediate attention. A chipped or broken tooth, if left untreated, can become infected and develop a pus-producing abscess. An abscess can also be caused by gum disease or worn enamel.

Lost or Loose Fillings

Most tooth restorations or fillings will need to be repaired or replaced at some time. If your filling falls out unexpectedly, call our office during business hours, and we will schedule you with an emergency dentist as soon as possible.

Broken Crowns

If you have a crown that breaks or comes loose, it’s wise to have your tooth examined within one to two days at the latest, even if you aren’t experiencing pain.

Orthodontic Pain or Injuries

An orthodontic wire that has come loose and is poking into your cheek can be extremely uncomfortable and require emergency attention. Broken brackets can’t wait until your next orthodontic appointment, so call for an appointment today.

Tooth Enamel Worn by Teeth Grinding

When teeth become worn by grinding, you may experience jaw pain and sore, cracked, or misaligned teeth. If you are in pain because of tooth grinding, we can help.

Sinus Pressure

Are you feeling a dull ache and pressure on your upper row of teeth? Sinus pain and tooth pressure are often interrelated. A dental infection or wisdom teeth that are impacted can create a feeling of pressure in your sinuses.

More Serious Concerns: What to Do

I’m concerned that I might have a serious injury or infection. Should I go to the emergency dental office near me or dial 911?

If you are experiencing tooth pain or bleeding that is related to a severe infection or trauma, the best choice is to take advantage of the 24hr dental emergency treatment that’s provided by hospital emergency rooms. They can give you immediate medical attention for acute issues. Then, see one of our emergency dentists for follow-up dental care to completely resolve the issue.

Emergency Dental Visits: Costs and Payments

How much can I expect to pay for emergency dental care near me? Are there any options available for low-cost emergency dentist visits?

Your emergency dentist visit costs will vary based on the nature of your problem and the treatment required. Our emergency dentists will provide a thorough examination to determine the cause of your symptoms and the best way to treat them. They’ll also provide you with an estimated total cost for all services to be provided.

We accept most dental insurance plans, but if you are in need of emergency dental care without insurance, you may choose to enroll in the DentRite® discount plan. This plan is not dental insurance, rather it’s a way to receive substantial savings on several essential dental procedures. We also accept most major credit cards and provide options for financing. Please call us to learn more.

If I need help at night or on a weekend, how can I find emergency dental care near me?

If you need emergency dental treatment outside of normal business hours, one option is to seek help from an urgent care center. You can also call 911 to go to a hospital emergency room. Physicians can provide antibiotics to treat infections and help with trauma or bleeding. Otherwise, call our office during normal business hours, and we will schedule emergency dental care as soon as possible.
