Do You Have a Dental Emergency?
Most dental emergencies are related to tooth or mouth pain, bleeding or orofacial trauma. Pulpal pain is described as intense throbbing that worsens with temperature changes and may radiate from the tooth to the cheek, temple or the nearest ear. Periapical periodontitis pain builds spontaneously and lasts several hours, worsening when you bite down or when the affected tooth touches neighboring teeth. This discomfort is typically due to infection in the adjacent gum tissue where abscesses form (like a boil in the gums).
Fractured teeth, knocked-out teeth and maxillofacial trauma are common injuries that lead people to our office. Bleeding caused by facial bone fractures, severe inflammatory lesions, infections and persistent hemorrhage is an urgent medical concern.
Other dental problems may warrant a visit to an emergency dentist. If you’re unsure if you need treatment immediately, contact our office to discuss your symptoms.
What Are the Benefits of Emergency Dentistry?
Emergency dental services are necessary to save a tooth after injury. Depending on the reason for the visit, urgent dental care can alleviate tooth or mouth pain, stop or slow the progression of infection or decay and restore full mouth function. Tooth-related emergencies can worsen quickly and affect your speaking and chewing abilities. Emergency dentistry services offer quick treatment to improve your pain and oral health.

Emergency treatment for these dental problems may require root canal therapy or tooth extraction. Dr. Goldy is a renowned dentist known for his aesthetic eye and his ability to restore a beautiful smile. Where possible, he will try to save a tooth, whether it’s severely damaged due to decay or was knocked out during an activity. Some dental emergencies may require additional medical treatment; Dr. Goldy can help direct you to the appropriate specialist or physician.
