There are times in which patients in the Philadelphia area need an emergency dentist. Situations such as those below often warrant immediate dental care:
- Dental accidents
- Broken, fractured teeth
- Trauma to a natural tooth
- Swollen jaw
- Denture repair
- Decayed, diseased, or infected dental nerves (needing root canal therapy)
- Lost restorations (veneers, crowns, and bridges)
Addressing problems as soon as they arise the best way to ensure a healthy, beautiful smile is maintained. Situations such as knocked out teeth may still end on a positive note, with teeth being reattached with immediate dental care from a professional. Dr. A and the team of Innovative Dental By Dr. A encourage new and existing patients to contact their practice when problems arise for emergency dental care.
Emergency dental visits are available throughout the day. Dr. A ensures he leaves time throughout the day for immediate appointments to handle situations in which dental care is necessary as soon as possible. His practice also has an after-hours line for patients to call when problems occur, ensuring a professional can walk them through what to do until they are able to seek dental or medical attention. If patients need medication to make themselves comfortable until they can see the dentist, our team can also send in immediate prescriptions for pain medications and schedule patients for an appointment the following day during business hours. Depending on the situation, some patients may be urged to visit their local emergency room for care after hours. This will depend on what has occurred, and a simple phone call to our practice can help guide patients in the right direction as to how to proceed with their dental emergency.
