Emergency Dental Care in Fort Wayne
Dental emergencies seem to happen at inconvenient times which can make it stressful to deal with them. To make it easier for you we’ve created a 24-hour referral service to help you find care in Fort Wayne. Our staff is committed to finding you the best possible care and we are available 24/7. Your appointment can be scheduled on the same day.
Preparing for Your Emergency Dental Appointment
You will want to prepare a few things before your emergency dental appointment.
If you have dental insurance and plan of filing a claim, you will need your insurance information so the staff can help you process the claim.
Bring any recent dental records that you have with you to help your emergency dentist determine which care will be best for you.
Have a full list of known allergies and/or current medications you’re taking on a regular basis.
Make sure you give yourself an extra 15 minutes to fill out paperwork when you arrive and, if applicable, to let the emergency dentist and their staff know about any questions or fears you have over going to the dentist.
Emergency Tooth Extractions
An emergency dentist may choose to perform an emergency tooth extraction.
If you are told you will be having one, you will first be given a numbing agent. Then, your dentist will use dental pliers to remove the tooth whole. If the dentist has any difficulties, they will break the tooth into smaller pieces and remove it that way.
Afterward, your emergency dentist will give you instructions for caring for your mouth. Follow these carefully to prevent infection and future dental emergencies.
The Most Common Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies happen more often than you may think so there are many emergency dentists available to treat them. It’s important that you find help quick before they progress and become more dangerous. Here are some common emergencies that people face:
Losing a tooth can leave you in a stressful situation but an emergency dentist can easily help you. Try locating the lost tooth but make sure you don’t pick it up by the root. Doing so can cause irreversible damage that will make it impossible for the emergency dentist to successfully plant it back in. Make sure you rinse it with some water.
You can try to put the tooth back in yourself, but you can also store it in a cup of milk or water if you’re unable to do so for whatever reason.
An abscess is time sensitive and can become dangerous quickly. If you notice any red bumps in your mouth and are experiencing pain, you most likely may have some type of oral infection. Call us immediately so we can get you the help you need.
Losing a crown is a common dental emergency that can be fixed easily. Try locating the crown and rinsing it carefully. Then, use either dental cement or gauze to cover the open tooth and keep it protected until your appointment.
Same Day Denture Repair Fort Wayne, IN
Patients in Fort Wayne have often needed same-day denture repairs, so we’ve decided to add denture lab technicians who work closely with emergency dentists to our network. Now, patients can have repairs done or be fitted for a new set of dentures on the same day they go in for the appointment we’ve booked for them.
Emergency Room vs. Emergency Dentist
It’s important to know whether you should visit the emergency room or emergency dentist for any injuries you’ve sustained. If you’ve endured any head trauma, you need to go to the emergency room to receive proper care.
However, if your injuries are mouth related, an emergency dentist will be the best fit to provide you with treatment.
