What Should I Expect at My Emergency Dental Visit?
The main focus of an emergency dental visit is to restore your comfort and prevent any further damage to teeth, bone, or gum tissue. Here is what you can expect at your emergency dental visit:
- Consult – When did the pain or condition start? Where is it located?
- X-rays – We will take digital images of the area for Dr. Vayner to use in diagnosis.
- Exam – Dr. Vayner will examine the area and provide treatment options.
- Treatment – In some cases, we can resolve your dental emergency in a single visit. Other times, you may need a follow-up visit to finish treatment.
Emergency dental treatment is designed to get you out of pain and back to your regular schedule. Dr. Vayner will discuss all of your options and help you make a choice that works best for you.
How Do I Prevent a Dental Emergency?
Preventing dental emergencies starts with a partnership between you and your dentist. Taking excellent care of your teeth at home is a good start. Combining diligent home care with regular dental cleanings and checkups is the best insurance policy to prevent dental emergencies.
Often, we can diagnose dental conditions in the early stages when they are less complex and less expensive to treat.
