Dental emergencies are probably more common that you can imagine. Sporting accidents, auto accidents, falls, infection, erupting teeth and other dental issues crop up unexpectedly, sending hundreds of people to the emergency room. The problem with going to a hospital emergency room for what is essentially a dental trauma is twofold. Hospitals and most urgent care centers do not have trained personnel who can adequately address dental issues. Additionally, those facilities are seldom equipped to handle dental care properly. Rivers + West Family Dentistry, on the other hand, is the perfect place for your dental emergencies.
Not only do we have all the necessary equipment to address dental trauma, but our dental team also has the expertise and experience to bring you through your dental trauma feeling better with restored oral health. A trip to the hospital emergency room or urgent care facility will most likely get you pain relievers and the suggestion to contact your dentist as soon as possible. A trip to Rivers + West Family Dentistry will provide the oral care you need to get you on the road to health again.
Urgent Dental Care
Swelling and excruciating pain from an infected tooth can be debilitating, not to mention dangerous. Urgent dental care can alleviate the pain, manage the infection and minimize the opportunity for serious complications to develop.
Serious dental pain can have various causes. An abscessed tooth is often the main cause, but an impacted wisdom tooth or postoperative complications, such as dry socket, can also cause substantial pain. These conditions also warrant immediate attention.
