In our community, an open dentist has many benefits to offer patients. The services are most available when the office staff has a high level of professionalism. There is no waiting period for the patients and the dental team members can address any dental concerns immediately.
An open dentist has emergency services as well. One of the major reasons a patient uses this type of dentistry is when there is an emergency involving a toothache. The treatment can be done in less than 30 minutes and the patient can get back to their normal daily routine almost immediately. The treatment includes a thorough examination of the teeth to ensure that there are no signs of an emergency. A thorough discussion with the patient and his or her family about what they can do to manage the pain and the sensitivity of the tooth is then administered.
In many instances, urgent dental care is needed very quickly, before the tooth becomes infected or begins to fail. This is why it is critical that any person who has had a toothache contact a dentist as soon as possible. Patients should not ignore the feelings of pain or discomfort that they are experiencing. The longer these symptoms linger, the more likely they will lead to infection or a loss of teeth.
The best option for a patient in these circumstances is to make an appointment as soon as possible and be seen by a dentist that is a part of a limited team. Having multiple dentist appointments at the same time allows the dentist to evaluate the condition of all of the patients simultaneously. The limited number of staff members available at any one time can be overwhelming at times and this allows for each patient to have their own individual attention and for them to receive the care they need in a timely manner.
If there is an emergency that involves a toothache but the patient has gone to a hospital emergency room already, it may be necessary for them to be discharged from the hospital. Any dental work that needs to be done on the teeth should only be done in a dental office that is located within the hospital. There are often times where dental patients are transferred to emergency rooms because of their conditions. This is not an appropriate place for emergency dental work.
Another good reason for using an emergency dental care service is if the patient is experiencing pain or discomfort in their mouth that is preventing them from chewing their food properly. Most dentists' offices offer twenty four hour emergency dental care services that are free of charge. If a toothache interrupts the patient's ability to eat, they can call us for immediate attention. Our dentists will assess the problem and come up with a treatment plan that will restore the patient's smile and their digestive system back to normal quickly.
