Certainly in life emergencies do come up and we certainly don’t like to have dental emergencies. When there’s pain involved, we absolutely see those patients the same day that they call if it’s at all possible. We work them into our schedule no matter how busy it is. Even if it’s just to take a quick look to see what the problem is. Once we determine what the problem is and what is needed, then we proceed from there whether it’s immediately treating it at that time or getting them to a specialist, or appointing them at a later time when we have the proper amount of time to fix their problem.
Avoid A Dental Emergency
Most emergencies can’t be prevented, but there are some measures you can take to protect your teeth.
- Wear an athletic mouthguard during any physical activity where you might fall, trip, or collide with someone or something else.
- Come in for regular dental cleanings and dental exams. This will keep tooth decay at bay and alert our office early to any oral health issues you might have.
- If your tooth is loose, damaged, or causing you discomfort in any way, make an appointment immediately. You should also see us if you’re concerned about your gums or your jaw.
Many costly, invasive dental procedures can be avoided with a little preventive treatment by our Virginia Beach dentist office.
