Dental Emergency FAQ’s
In any emergency, you need to act quickly to give yourself the best chance of saving your smile. That means being prepared well before you ever need to think about calling your emergency dentist in Waverly. Below are the answers to some common questions our patients have brought to us. If you have any additional concerns, call us today! We’ll make sure you have the knowledge you need to make a plan in the worst-case scenario.
What Should I Do About Tooth Sensitivity?
Tooth sensitivity can have several different causes. Most often, sensitivity is caused by weakened tooth enamel or a cavity. These can easily be addressed with desensitizing toothpastes and fillings. However, sometimes tooth sensitivity is an indication of exposed tooth roots or a dental infection, which may require a more extensive solution like root canal therapy. The only way to know for sure what’s causing your tooth sensitivity and if it requires emergency care is to give us a call and see us for an evaluation. From there, we’ll help you determine the best way to keep your smile healthy and pain-free.
What Counts As a Dental Emergency?
“Dental emergency” is a very broad category, but in most cases, it’ll involve physical damage to the teeth (cracked, broken or knocked out teeth) and/or severe pain (toothaches that last more than a couple of days). Also, if you notice sudden swelling or uncontrollable bleeding in your mouth, you’ll need to make an appointment as soon as possible. Remember, just because an issue isn’t causing you pain at the moment doesn’t mean it won’t become a bigger issue later; you should call your dentist any time you have doubts about your oral health.
I’ve Never Been a Patient At Your Practice Before. Can You Still Help?
Absolutely! Time is of the essence during an emergency, and we’re happy to see patients of all kinds no matter whether or not they’ve already visited our practice. Dr. Vacek has made a point of establishing a tradition of providing exceptional dental care for patients all across the communities that surround Waverly; most importantly, however, he loves being able to help people who need it. If you or a loved one need urgent attention that could mean the difference between saving or losing a tooth, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
Will My Toothache Go Away on Its Own?
If you have a toothache, the pain might eventually fade on its own over time, but that’s not necessarily a good thing! The pain from a toothache is from bacteria attacking the nerve; once the nerve’s been destroyed, the pain stops, but the infection is still there. Eventually, it’ll work its way to the bone; not only could your teeth become loose, but the infection can invade the rest of the body. It’s best to stop these infections in the earliest stages, so don’t delay in calling our practice!
In general, you should never wait for a dental issue to fix itself. Always call a dentist for treatment if you think there’s something seriously wrong.
