what you'll need for your appointment buffalo

What You’ll Need for Your Appointment

Make sure you have the following with you before you leave for your appointment with the emergency dentist:

  • Documentation or any sort of paperwork from your most recent dental visit
  • Insurance information needed for filing a claim, if you have dental insurance
  • A list containing medications you take on a daily or regular basis and known allergies

You need to give yourself some extra time to ask questions and fill out paperwork when you arrive. A minimum of 15 minutes should be more than enough. You should also use this time to explain to the emergency dentist and their team that you’re nervous or afraid, if you are feeling these emotions. Knowing your mindset and how you’re feeling is the best way for them to go the extra mile to keep you comfortable.

The Most Common Dental Emergencies Treated

No matter what you’re going through, head trauma will always be the top priority on your injury list. This type of injury must be dealt with and treated before anything else.

Dental emergencies are either the result of an oral health problem that went untreated or undetected for however long, or because of an accident that resulted in injury.

Knocked Out or Otherwise Lost Teeth

Before you do anything else, you need to make sure that any sustained head trauma is seen and treated by a doctor.

If the tooth that came out has been found, rinse it off with some water and try not to touch the root too much, if at all. Touching the root, which is the part of the tooth that isn’t visible in your mouth, can destroy it, making it impossible to be planted back into the empty socket by the emergency dentist.

You can try to put it back in as a temporary measure until the emergency dentist is able to permanently implant it back in. If you’re not comfortable doing that, or are unable to do so for whatever reason, you can keep the tooth safe in a cup of milk or water.

Oral Infections – Abscesses

Oral infections, such as abscesses, are extremely painful, time-sensitive, and have the potential to kill you if they aren’t treated fast enough.

Checking your mouth for sores that look like small, red bumps, or anything that resembles a pimple or facial acne, is the best way to see if an oral infection is present.

Call us immediately if you find anything of this sort or suspect you have an oral infection – time is not on your side.

Losing a Filling or a Crown

Fillings and crowns aren’t designed to last a lifetime. They can fall out due to age or because they’ve become damaged for whatever reason. Either way, if and when one of yours fall out, you need to use something to temporarily replace it while we book an appointment for you.

Dental cement, gauze, or even a cotton ball will do the trick, but you need to make sure something is protecting the exposed tooth at all times.

Leaving the tooth open and without the filling or crown that was put in place to protect it will result in further damage. The emergency dentist we book you with may not be able to save the tooth and recap or refill it if more damage has been done, which will require an emergency tooth extraction.

Emergency Tooth Extractions

Facing an emergency tooth extraction, even if it’s just a possibility, is one of the biggest reasons why patients will often skip going to the dentist. Fortunately, one of the best ways to be ready for one and ease any anxiety you may have, is to know a bit about the procedure and what you can expect.

The emergency dentist will use a numbing agent to make sure you don’t go through any pain throughout the procedure. You will feel some pressure when the tooth is being removed, whether whole or in pieces, but only a minor amount.

After the tooth has been removed, you will given aftercare instructions from the emergency dentist or someone from their staff. Following their instructions properly is extremely important to ensure infection of the extraction site is avoided.

emergency dentist or emergency room doctor buffalo

Emergency Dentist or Emergency Room Doctor?

The most important question you need to ask after an accident, injury, or whatever type of incident has occurred, is whether you require an emergency dentist or an emergency room doctor. More often than not you will need both, but figuring out which one is needed could save your life.

An emergency room doctor can’t save your teeth, but they are the only healthcare professional, other than regular doctors, who can treat any sustained head trauma. If you’ve injured your head, not including your mouth, you need to seek treatment from an emergency room doctor right away.

Emergency dentists can’t treat your head trauma, but they can save your teeth and treat your oral injuries.
