Why You Might Need an Emergency Dentist
There are many reasons why we may find ourselves needing an emergency dentist. Most likely, we just haven’t made ourselves a top priority. Some of us have skipped so many appointments that we’re ashamed about seeing a dentist because it’s been so long. Others have had bad experiences at the dentist and don’t want to bother trying it again. Whatever your issues are, don’t worry about them now. Dr. Embury can help you move forward from here. Because of his extensive training and skills as a sedation and cosmetic dentist, he can treat most urgent issues immediately and can make you feel comfortable and pain-free while doing so.
Types of Dental Emergencies
A toothache is the most common dental emergency. It not only needs immediate attention to relieve the pain, but it could be a sign of a more serious problem. Toothaches usually result from infections caused by decay. If the infection is severe enough, it will destroy the pulp tissue inside your tooth. When the pulp is destroyed, you’ll need to have a root canal. A root canal would prevent the infection from spreading into the surrounding bone of the tooth and turning into an abscess.
A toothache can also result from a cracked tooth. And if the crack spreads down into the root of your tooth, you could end up losing the tooth. If you have a toothache or a cracked tooth, you need to see Dr. Embury as soon as possible. Dr. Embury can help alleviate your pain and discuss with you your best course of action.
A Pain-free Solution
Dr. Embury understands your anxieties and is qualified to help you manage pain and anxiety during your emergency dental treatment. To help you feel more relaxed, we offer oral sedatives and nitrous oxide (laughing gas). In most cases, patients who use even a small amount of nitrous oxide feel no sensations during their procedure and are in a state of relaxation throughout. And the effects of nitrous oxide wear off immediately, which means you can drive yourself home as soon as your appointment is over.
