If you develop a toothache, it should not be ignored. A toothache is our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. Inside the tooth are nerve endings and cellular material. When a tooth is damaged or diseased, internal structures can become infected. When the inside of a tooth is infected, it can produce moderate to severe discomfort since nerve endings are involved.
When a toothache strikes, it is important to call our practice as soon as you can so that we can schedule an examination. While waiting for your appointment, you can alleviate discomfort with over the counter pain medication and cold compresses.
Broken and chipped teeth can often be repaired if patients respond to their emergencies properly and seek professional treatment quickly. If a tooth becomes displaced, chipped or broken, try to keep its pieces with you. Do not place the pieces of a tooth in water. If possible, place the pieces of a broken tooth or a knocked out tooth in milk or Save-A-Tooth solution (available at large pharmacies). This will help keep your tooth’s structures alive while you wait for treatment. Be sure to call our practice as soon as possible after breaking a tooth so that we can make accommodations for treatment at our office.
We recommend saving our number in your mobile phone so that you can reach us easily. Feel free to take extra business cards and store them in your desk at work or your vehicle, too. When it comes to dental emergencies, our team is here to help you with compassionate and effective care.
To schedule an appointment, contact Parker-Read Dental at your convenience.
A dental emergency is any situation that requires expedient treatment. Common dental emergencies include facial trauma, broken teeth, chipped teeth, and restorations like crowns coming loose. If you have a dental emergency, call our practice as soon as possible to set up an appointment for treatment. When you call, be sure to give our staff plenty of information so that we can anticipate your needs prior to your visit. If you have suffered a severe injury that involves blood loss and broken bones, visit your nearest emergency room for treatment.
Dental coverage isn’t universal to all patients. Carriers and plans within carriers offer different types of benefits. What is covered and what is considered an out-of-pocket expense is determined by your policy. If you have questions about your coverage, call your insurance provider for clarifications. After treatment, our staff will file your insurance claims as a courtesy for you.
