What To Bring To Your Emergency Dentist AppointmentThere are some things you’ll need to bring to prepare for your emergency dental appointment. Bring any recent dental records that you have with you to help your emergency dentist determine which care will be best for you. 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. It’s also best to give your dentist a full list of known allergies and/or current medications you’re taking on a regular basis When it’s time for your appointment arrive 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork when you arrive and, if applicable, let the emergency dentist and their staff know about any questions or fears you have over going to the dentist.
Honolulu Same Day Denture RepairHonolulu dental patients 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.
The Most Common Dental EmergenciesDental emergencies are a common occurrence and many emergency dentists available to treat a variety of conditions. It’s important that you find help quick before they progress and become more dangerous. Here are some common emergencies that people face:
AbscessesAbscessed teeth are dangerous conditions that can progress 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.
Lost CrownsLosing 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.
Lost TeethLosing 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. Store it in a cup of milk or water if you’re unable to do so for whatever reason.
Emergency Tooth ExtractionsYou may need to have an emergency tooth extraction done to help treat your dental emergency. If your dentist decides to perform 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.
Emergency Room vs. Emergency DentistIf you’ve been in an accident where you’ve sustained injuries, it’s important to know whether you should visit the emergency room or emergency dentist. 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.
