Weekend Tooth Extractions – Finding a Dentist Near You

oral surgeryThe best way to avoid emergency dental appointments is to practice good dental hygiene and always remember to schedule and keep those routine checkups and teeth cleanings at least twice a year.

Some elderly patients or those with certain chronic health conditions may even get advised to see the dentist more than twice a year. However, there are situations that require emergency treatment, and in some cases, this even involves emergency tooth extractions.

Emergency Dental Extractions After Hours in Baltimore MD

Of course, we offer emergency dental service to our dental patients. In case of pain or swelling at night or on the weekends, quick treatment may be key to preventing even worse health problems. Infections in the mouth can spread to other parts of the body. In time, they can even cause heart problems.

Besides, nobody wants to try to get through a day with dental pain so severe that it makes it hard to eat or even drink. This is not a comfortable or healthy way to be.

In case of dental emergencies:

* Take over-the-counter pain relief.
* Contact the emergency dental phone number. There may be instructions to treat the pain at home or come to the office right away to meet the dentists. Please follow these instructions.
* Get quick relief and an emergency solution to pain.

Followup Care For Dental Emergencies

In some cases, we might take emergency measures that might need to get followed up with a regular dental appointment later. This could be in our office, but we may refer you to a specialist if we diagnose a severe problem. Either way, you will know that you have been treated to keep the problem from getting worse and manage pain.

Billing For Emergency Extractions And Other Dental Treatment

If you have dental insurance, it should cover emergency dental extractions. If not, we will work out billing arrangements. Here at our dental office, our patients come first, and this is even more true in the case of a dental emergency.

Don’t ignore severe pain, a broken tooth, or other major signs of a dental emergency. If you have a fever or severe swelling, the emergency dental line may even give you instructions to head straight for a hospital emergency room.

However, in the vast majority of cases, our office can administer the medically correct treatment. The decision might hinge upon the overall nature of the problem and the overall health of the person who needs to seek emergency treatment.

Emergency Tooth Extractions in the Towson, MD Dental Office

With regard to tooth extractions we want you to understand that no dentist can ever “promise” over the phone that he/she will extract your tooth without first conducting a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth to determine whether an extraction is necessary. The truth is that instead of pulling your tooth the best course of action might be to try to save your tooth. This can only be determined AFTER you’ve been examined by a dentist.
