Many people avoid going to the dentist until it is absolutely necessary. Sometimes patients fear the cost or are anxious about what treatment will entail, but waiting until an emergency occurs can risk making your dental issue worse than it has to be.
Once someone is experiencing a dire situation, what should they do? Thanks to advancements in technology, the dental professionals at SmilEra Dental Studio, Ottawa, ON, can provide quick, effective treatment to alleviate pain, target the root of the problem, and help you get back to your regular activities. This type of dentistry, which emphasizes speedy treatment and immediate care, is called emergency dentistry. If you’re looking for an emergency dental clinic, give us a call.
A common problem that patients have is not knowing what situations qualify as a dental emergency, especially if they have been experiencing pain or discomfort for a long time. We recommend visiting SmilEra Dental Studio if you are in one of the following scenarios:
It can be difficult to think during an emergency, but there are a couple of things you can do to ensure your visit to our emergency dental clinic goes smoothly.
If a tooth has been knocked out, try to locate it. Avoid removing any tissue still attached. When the tissue is preserved, it can be possible to restore the tooth and have it grow back in place.
Stem the flow of bleeding. If you have excessive bleeding, bite down on paper towels to soak up the blood and potentially facilitate clotting.
Bring someone with you to SmilEra Dental Studio. If you can, bring along someone else who has a driver’s license. Some forms of emergency treatment will require anesthetics.
